All That Remains Issues Another Update On Tour Cancellation
December 9, 2008
Massachusetts modern thrashers, All That Remains, have issued the following update via their Myspace page, regarding their dropping off the remainder of the In Flames tour:

"Hey Everyone, We are so bummed we had to cancel. We cant wait to reschedule these shows and we promise to make it up to you. We'll try to come up with a cool way to make it up to all of you who went out expecting to see us play and couldn't. For everyone who bought a ticket to the In Flames shows that we were unable to perform at, bring your ticket stub to the next ATR concert in your city and we will give you a free tour shirt while supplies last..."

All That Remains, will hit the road once again in early 2009 on a European co-headlining tour with The Haunted, set for a Jan. 10 start date in Nottingham and wrapping up a little over a month later in Brussels. Support for the tour package will be rounded out by Britain’s own Johnny Truant for the UK dates and Germany’s Deadlock for the mainland European leg of the tour.

All That Remains continues to support the band’s critically-acclaimed fourth full-length, ‘Overcome,’ which saw a September release through Prosthetic/Razor & Tie. The album has already spawned two videos (for the tracks “Two Weeks” and “Chiron”), as well as appearances on this past summer’s Van’s Warped Tour and a recently-completed co-headlining tour of the US with Trivium. Several tracks from ‘Overcome,’ as well as music from All That Remains’ previous album, ‘The Fall of Ideals,’ was also recently released as downloadable content for Rock Band 2.

Biography
HOME TOWN: Brighton, United Kingdom

Named after a drug addled criminal from Mark Z. Danielewski's cult book, House Of Leaves. Johnny Truant are as extreme as they are experimental. Their 3-track demo (recorded under the name Severance) was enough to secure a deal with Undergroove Recordings (Charger, Matter, 3 Stages Of Pain) and the Brighton based quartet spent the Spring of 2002 working on their debut album, The Repercussions Of A Badly Planned Suicide. Recorded at Philia Studios, Oxon, UK, with Dave Chang (Stampin' Ground, earthtone9, Charger), the album has been mixed by acclaimed producer Joe Gibb (Leftfield, Jane's Addiction, even Madonna!) at Mighty Atom Studios, Swansea, Wales. Aaron Turner (Isis/ Old Man Gloom/ Hydra Head Records) created the albums artwork in Boston, USA. Turner, of course, is known for his covers for cutting edge bands like Cave In, Botch and Isis.Citing everything from the US underground noisecore scene to classic rock as an influence, Johnny Truant's music is suitably intense and yet jam-packed with groove and melody which is demonstrated perfectly in their debut release. Just check out tracks like 'I Am The Primitologist Mr Robert Sapolsky' (about evolution); 'Seven Days At Knifepoint' (about a close friend who was stabbed); 'Consider Us Dead' which features guest vocals from Charger's Tim Machin and the nine minute instrumental 'Puparia'. Johnny Truant have already notched up gigs with label mates Charger, Matter as well as Raging Speedhorn, Medulla Nocte, Labrat, Mahumodo and Sikth and intend to cause riots wherever they go.They're ready to dance ... are you?
