ALL THAT REMAINS Drummer Forced To Sit Out 'Rockstar Mayhem' Tour

ALL THAT REMAINS drummer Jason Costa broke his hand last week and will be unable to accompany the band on the upcoming Rockstar Mayhem Festival Tour, which kicks off on July 10. Temporarily replacing Costa on the trek will be Tony Laureano, who is best known for his work with such bands as DIMMU BORGIR and NILE.

In addition to the festival dates, the group will play a series of club shows with HATEBREED, DEVILDRIVER, DISTURBED and KILLSWITCH ENGAGE.

SPINearth.tv, SPIN magazine's new global music site, recently uploaded a three-minute report on ALL THAT REMAINS' June 9, 2009 concert at club Tochka in Moscow, Russia. The clip, which includes interview and peformance footage, can be viewed below.

ALL THAT REMAINS performed at Columbus, Ohio's third annual Rock On The Range festival on May 16, 2009.

ALL THAT REMAINS singer Philip Labonte recently told The Pulse of Radio why Rock On The Range was an important show for them. "This kind of gig is really cool because it's one time, one day, one event, it's a great way to get in front of new people, especially a band like us that doesn't really — until this record — had no radio presence at all, you know. And so now to be able to go ahead and get onstage in front of these people, have a song that they know...these shows are amazing," he said.

This year's Rock On The Range featured 38 bands and sold a two-day total of 56,000 tickets, according to promoter Del Williams.

ALL THE REMAINS had its first Top 10 hit at rock radio with "Two Weeks", from the band's fourth album, "Overcome".

"Overcome" has sold more than 170,000 copies in the United States so far, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
