All That Remains frontman speaks on attempt to land on the 2011 Uproar Festival

All That Remains frontman Phil LaBonte has spoken at length about the bands attempt to land on the 2011 Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival. According to LaBonte, All That Remains would likely have been positioned to be play before hardcore outfit Escape The Fate on the festival:
When asked by a fan via Facebook if All That Remains is taking part in this year’s Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival alongside rumored participating act ESCAPE THE FATE, Labonte wrote, “I have NO idea what the deal is with ESCAPE THE FATE but they must have WICKED powerful management.”

“We’ve sold probably five times the records they have, been around probably 10 years longer than they have, have four more records than they do, we have three songs that have charted in the Top 20 at radio, two of which have made the Top 10, they have none, and they STILL get preferential treatment over us. I don’t know what they sound like, I’ve never met them, but it sucks when a band [with] powerful management tries to use another band that has busted their ass for over 10 years as a footstool. Not cool.”

The 2011 Rockstar Energy Uproar Festival is expected to be announced on May 17th. We have been told that bands participating in this tour include:

Avenged Sevenfold
3 Days Grace
Bullet For My Valentine
Escape The Fate
Black Tide


  1. all that remains is soo much better that ETF, ETF is a punch of pussies anyways, sad to see this happen to a great band

  2. Damn, I fully agree w/ Phil. Take out Escape The Fate (who aren't as great as they used to be anyway w/o the original singer) and replace 'em w/ ATR. Also get rid of Sevendust just b/c I'm not a fan and I'm a selfish prick.
