All That Remains’ Phil Labonte On Oli Herbert’s Death: “I Was Shocked”

During a recent interview with Meltdown of Detroit’s WRIF, All That Remains frontman Phil Labonte opened up about the tragic death of guitarist Oli Herbert. He said that “it was a big shock” and that the band are “still processing it.”

Labonte said the following:

“I was shocked. He was 44 years old, and he wasn’t really a big partier. He would go hang out with people and stuff, but he didn’t really do a lot of drinking… He didn’t do drugs, he didn’t really drink a lot. He would smoke pot once in a while, but that was the extent of it. And so, yeah, it was a big shock. And we’re still processing it and trying to figure out how it is that we move forward and what that means and stuff. So… it sucks.”

He also added the following about the band’s decision to continue:

“We’re gonna continue on. The band is not gonna end. It’s gonna be different and it’s gonna be weird. We’ve got someone that’s filling in for this European trip that we’ve got coming up at the end of the month.

And he is the guy that Oli would have wanted to fill in, to replace him. And then we’ll start looking for a full-time replacement, I assume, shortly. ‘Cause we’ve got stuff that we wanna do next year.

We don’t wanna let the [new] record be pushed aside. Oli would have wanted us to play the songs. He was excited about the way the record sounded and he was excited about a lot of the stuff on it, so he wouldn’t want us to stop.

So we’ve just gotta figure out what that actually looks like and how we do that.”

Herbert’s body was found in a pond near his home in Stafford Springs, CT on October 16 and his widow Beth has confirmed that his death was the result of drowning. She also added that anti-depressants and a sleep aid were found in his system. All That Remains have since recruited Jason Richardson (ex-Born Of Osiris/Chelsea Grin) to fill-in.

Cause Of Death Revealed For Late All That Remains Guitarist Oli Herbert

Late All That Remains guitarist Oli Herbert’s widow Beth has confirmed that his death was the result of drowning. She also added that anti-depressants and a sleep aid were found in his system. Herbert’s body was found in a pond near his home in Stafford Springs, CT on October 16. He was only 44 years old.

Beth said the following on Facebook:

“Good morning everyone this is Beth. And indeed it IS a good morning; Toxicology results are back as is the official cause of my husband’s death!

Cause of death- Drowning
Toxicology- Oli was apparently self-treating for manic-depression that has run in his family for several generations. Anti-depressants were found in his system, as well as a sleep aid. The psych meds found in his system were the same ones that a close relative has been prescribed for a long time, so he knew what to hunt down for the “treatment”.

Seeing how he was not going (and WOULDN’T GO) to a doctor to get diagnosed with the issue and was not being prescribed the medications and monitored on them, it explains his occasional erratic behavior here at home.

As far as why the memorial was cancelled; concern for my personal safety and home due to numerous threats to both is the reason.

If anybody knows where Oli was getting the psych meds, please call CT State Police, Troop C in Tolland, CT.”

She also added the following in the comments:

“One of the drugs can have a hallucinogenic effect, also restlessness. Oli kept wanting to go outside that night before he disappeared and he kept walking towards the pond, which is a pitch black part of our property as well as very slippery.. Add to that fact that it was raining that evening. Apparently he left the house after I went to bed so I couldn’t stop him and bring him back inside.”
