All That Remains’ Phil Labonte Says “It’s Possible” That Unreleased Material Featuring The Late Oli Herbert Will Surface

During an interview with 100.5 The KATT, All That Remains frontman Phil Labonte confirmed that the band still have some unreleased songs that feature late guitarist Oli Herbert. The singer went on to say that the tracks may surface one day if their label decides to release them.

Labonte said the following:

“There’s some other songs that didn’t make it to ‘Victim [Of The New Disease]’, so it’s possible that people will hear other stuff from the ‘Victim’ sessions. The label has them, so we’ll see what they decide they want to do. We felt like the 10 songs that made it on to ‘Victim’, we were, like, ‘These are the ones that make the most sense for us to put as a collection of songs.’ There’s no other, like, hidden riffs or anything like that, so anything that we write for the next record that we do, that will be something that I imagine will be heavily influenced [by] and there will be heavy contributions from Jason Richardson.”

Listen To One Of Late All That Remains Guitarist Oli Herbert’s Final Recordings

A Dead Desire’s Moroni Silva has shared a new cover of Eurythmics‘ “Here Comes The Rain Again.“ The track features late All That Remains guitarist Oli Herbert and a video for it can be seen below. Silva told MetalSucks the following: “Oli was a good friend and wanted to release the song at the start of the rain season, so it was released on the New Moon of the 5th of this month and dedicated to him.”

Unfortunately, Herbert’s widow Beth has taken issue with track. She issued the following statement:

“Hello everyone. This is Beth. I am aware that something was released that contained my husband’s work on it that was not finished before his death. To be clear, if anything is to be released after Oli’s death and it isn’t All That Remains material, you need me, the executrix of the estate to sign off on it. Also, probate was not opened until this year so any arrangements after my husband‘s death for his material but before I was named executrix is unenforceable.”

Herbert’s body was found in a pond near his home in Stafford Springs, CT back in October 2018. Police have been investigating his death ever since, treating it as suspicious. One week before his death, the guitarist signed a will making Beth the sole executor and benefactor.

Back in February, All That Remains frontman Phil Labonte said he couldn’t comment on the ongoing investigation, but did say Beth is a “garbage human being.”

Fans and friends have long thought Herbert’s death was suspicious and have been sharing evidence on a Justice For Oli Herbert Facebook page.

All That Remains Premiere “Everything’s Wrong” Video

All That Remains have premiered a new video for their song “Everything’s Wrong.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Victim Of The New Disease.” The clip features controversial wrestler Enzo Amore, who was fired from the WWE in January due to sexual assault allegations.

Phil Labonte commented:

“We’re super excited to share this video with everyone. Everyone in ATR really feels like the video captured the song perfectly. We’re also excited that Enzo Amore could be a part of it — he really did a great job in the lead role.

[Guitarist] Mike Martin is a big wrestling fan and Enzo was a pro in the WWE for a while. He’s great on the mic and we think he did a great job capturing the feeling we were looking for. So please give it a look, and don’t forget to smash that ‘like’ button.”

He also discussed the video further with Revolver:

“The video really captures the song’s meaning about how when something slips away, it can seem like the whole world has crashed down around you. Things that used to make sense no longer do. When something goes bad in your life, the ripple effect can really touch everything else — things you used to do, places you used to go, even people who you used to be friends with.”

All That Remains Frontman Phil Labonte Calls Oli Herbert’s Widow A “Garbage Human Being”

All That Remains guitarist Oli Herbert died back in October 2018 after drowning in a pond near his home in Stafford Springs, CT. Police have been investigating his death ever since, treating it as suspicious. Now, during an appearance on “Rover’s Morning Glory,” Phil Labonte was asked about his bandmate’s death and his opinions on his widow Beth, who the frontman says is a “garbage human being.”

Labonte said the following when asked about Herbert’s passing:

“I think when it comes to the circumstances surrounding Oli‘s death, that the best thing for me to say is there’s not a lot I could say, because there is an investigation.”

He also added the following when asked what kind of guy Herbert was:

“He was never into drugs. He loved playing guitar. Our drummer is the big drinker in the band. Our drummer used to be like ‘Oli, do shots’ and Oli would be like ‘shots are for adolescents.’ [laughs] He would have mixed drinks or whatever, he liked good beers, but he wasn’t into the drinking and stuff. He would have some drinks, but I don’t ever recall Oli… in twenty years, I’ve seen him hung over two times. He just wasn’t into it. It wasn’t his deal. He loved playing guitar.”

Labonte later continued:

“Oli Herbert did not do the types of drugs that you would associate with an overdose, period.” He continued on to say that in the 21- 22 years they knew each other, he “never saw him [Oli] do the type of drugs that you would associate with, you know, somebody who overdoses…”

Labonte went on to call Beth an “absolute garbage human being” after being read a line from a Facebook post she made. He later discussed the band’s relationship with her:

“Beth was never allowed to be around… to be on tour. She would come to the local shows because, you know, we couldn’t stop her… Everyone else in the band’s wives, girlfriends, whatever—they would come out on tour, stay for a few days, stay for a week, everybody got along.”

He also added the following when asked why she couldn’t go on tour:

“We [the band] made the decision, and she wasn’t allowed because she was a garbage human being. [laughs].”

He continued after being asked why Oli Herbert stayed married to her:

“We tried to convince him to get a divorce for a long time. I can’t tell you exactly why he wouldn’t do it or what the circumstances were surrounding his resistance. I don’t know. But I can say that I personally talked to him and said multiple times, look if you need a place to stay, I got plenty of room…”

When asked if he had an opinion on Herbert‘s death and Beth’s possible involvement, Labonte said:

“I do have an opinion on it, but I am not going to say. There is an ongoing investigation happening by the Connecticut state police.”

This news comes after it was recently revealed that Herbert signed a will making Beth the sole executor and benefactor just one week before his death

Beth previously said the guitarist died from drowning and that anti-depressants and a sleep aid were found in his system. However, the medical examiner’s office said the manner of death is still “undetermined.”

Fans and friends have long thought his death was suspicious and have been sharing evidence on a Justice For Oli Herbert Facebook page.
