The Massachusetts quintet ALL THAT REMAINS, whose current single "Two Weeks" is climbing the charts at active rock radio, have confirmed two warm-up concerts prior to their headlining appearance at the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival in Worcester, Mass. on Apr. 17. The dates are as follows:
4/14 Higher Ground - Burlington, Vt. w/ August Burns Red
4/15 Lost Horizon - Syracuse, N.Y. w/ August Burns Red, Unholy
These three shows mark the group's first American concerts in five months. The band will play additional dates throughout the spring, including the Rock on the Range Festival in Columbus, Ohio in mid-May alongside Motley Crue, Slipknot and three dozen others. They will also perform live at the inaugural Epiphone Revolver Golden Gods Awards at Club Nokia in Los Angeles on April 7.
ALL THAT REMAINS just completed a successful European co-headlining tour with The Haunted and is currently touring Australia as part of the Soundwave Festival, which also features Nine Inch Nails, Alice In Chains and Lamb of God, among others. From there, the band will head to Japan to support Dragonforce.
"Australia is fucking awesome," says vocalist Phil Labonte. "Everyone has told us over and over, 'Wait 'till you get to Australia. It's amazing – you're gonna love it!' They were right – it's amazing down here. The first show we played was in Brisbane, and as soon as I walked backstage to get ready, I heard people starting to chant 'ATR! ATR!' When you've never even played in a country and people are chanting for you before you play, there's no better feeling in the world."
