All That Remains is one of those bands that fight against being labeled as any particular metal genre and rather call themselves a metal band. This time, mixing different melodic influences in their latest album ‘The Order Of Things’, the band releases the video for ‘Victory Lap’, the second video release from the album where they show how important live performances are to them and how they make music.
‘The Order Of Things’ was released earlier this year on February 24th by Razor & Tie Direct L.L.C. This album marks a separation from previous work and most importantly the sound that made All That Remains a recognized act coming from the New Wave of American Heavy Metal. In this album, which was produced by Josh Wilbur, All That Remains are showing to the world what else they can do musically. With the release of the album’s first single ‘This Probably Won’t End Well’, the band marked the change of direction, having a more rock-like approach to their music, which also reflected in the video made for that single.

I mean, the song came together and we were like, ‘You know, this one’s really cool,’ and then the label came in and were like, ‘We want to put this one out first,’ and we were like, ‘Really?’ And they were like, ‘Yeah,’ and we were like, ‘Okay, it’s cool with us, you know, it’s not a… We’re proud of the whole record.[/blockquote]
In this second video release, All That Remains wanted to show what it is like to prepare for a live performance and the release of energy and constant feedback they get from their audiences worldwide. ‘Victory Lap’ pays honor to that feeling through different footage.
[blockquote cite=”Phil Labonte”]We’re excited to announce the release of our new video for ‘Victory Lap.’ We wanted to do a live video because that’s such a huge part of making music for us. So we hope you enjoy this little taste of All That Remains on the road.[/blockquote]
As any band does after releasing a new album, All That Remains is currently promoting ‘The Origin Of Things’ through a joined tour called Devour The Day with Auditopsy and Sons Of Texas. Starting on November 17th going all the way to December 18th through the United States, All That Remains will show their new approach alongside with their most well-known material from albums like ‘Overcome’ and ‘For We Are Many’. Regarding the perception the band has of the album, generally speaking, they believe is one of the best albums that they had put together thus far.
[blockquote cite=”Oli Herbert”]I feel ‘The Order Of Things’ is probably one of our strongest records we’ve ever done, because we had Josh Wilbur come in and produce it, and I think that his contribution, especially to the vocal ideas, really makes it pop. And there’s such a great variety on the album. So if you like the heavy stuff, we’ve got it. If you like the softer stuff, we’ve got a little of that. But I think it’s all around a really polished, really great All That Remains record.[/blockquote]
