All That Remains Vs Escape The Fate
All That Remains frontman Phil Labonte has expressed his bewilderment at the “preferential treatment” Escape The Fate gets over Labonte’s group — despite the fact that All That Remains has sold “probably five times the [number of] records” Escape The Fate has.
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.”
