Last month, it was reported that All That Remains guitarist and founding member Oli Herbert died at the age of 44.The band made the announcement Oct. 17, with little information at first, and it was later revealed to be an accident.
Following his death, the band has announced that they have decided to continue on with their previously-scheduled European tour with Sevendust, where a fill-in was announced.
According to a report from Blabbermouth, the band will still continue on with the trek, where they will bring Jason Richardson (Born of Osiris and Chelsea Grin) on as a replacement for those upcoming dates.
In addition to making the announcement of their tour fill-in, they have also released their ninth studio album, titled Victim of the New Disease.
The album marks the last piece of work that Herbert did with All That Remains. Herbert played on all nine albums from the band, and as noted by the band, they wanted to honor him by sharing the music with everyone.
Vocalist Phil Labonte said in a statement posted to Facebook:
“Losing Oli has been a tremendous blow to the core of ATR, but we know he wouldn’t want anything other than for us to continue. He loved this record so much – it’s some of our best work. We look forward to sharing the music with everyone – seeing our fans from the stage. From where Oli loved most. It’ll be cathartic. We’ll need it to be.”
