Exclusive: All That Remains Premiere New Song, "Halo"
Frontman Phil Labonte said, "'Halo' is a cool song. It’s really about how you don’t need anyone’s approval for the way that you want to live your life. You don’t need to have someone say, 'Okay, this is an acceptable way to organize your life' and so on. A lot of people get wrapped up in needing approval from others, so it’s about realizing you don’t need that and refusing to behave as if you do need it."
During an interview about the new record with Revolver for our October/November 2016 issue, Labonte explained: “We wanted to mix it up a little bit and write from a vocal perspective this time. So I went to L.A. and came up with vocal ideas and melodies and then sent those chord progressions back to Oli [Herbert, guitarist] and he wrote riffs in response to that, turned the record into a vocal album as opposed to a guitar album. And that affected some things. Like, there might be less intricacy in the riffs because they were written in response to my voice.” The full excerpt can be read here.
