All That Remains vocalist Phil Labonte is hardly one to mince words, keep his opinions to himself or adhere to any form of political correctness. The Massachusetts native, and former U.S. Marine, has taken fire for his opinions on tropics ranging from Big Government to Gun Control. He’s also recently become partner in Highlander Arms, a New Hampshire gun shop.
Labonte, 37, is articulate and well informed – more like Bill Maher than Ted Nugent. Yes, the artwork for All That Remain’s upcoming album, A War You Cannot Win, out on Nov. 6, Election Day, does feature two crossed machine guns. And yes, he recently took on Rage Against the Machine‘s Tom Morello. Yet, Phil is hardly an arch-conservative. In fact, he’s quite the opposite.
Noisecreep recently chatted with Labonte about his political views, guns and All That Remains’ upcoming record.
