All That Remains Frontman Phil Labonte On Potential Label Beef, Slams Black Veil Brides’ Andy Biersack

Either All That Remains frontman Phil Labonte is doing some playful ribbing or he has legitimate beef with Prosthetic Records co-founder E.J. Johantgen. Speaking through his Facebook/Twitter earlier this week, Labonte offered:

“I can’t help but wonder why we’re the biggest band on @ProstheticRcds and EJ just doesn’t like me anymore. You mad cause I sing too much now?”

Meanwhile, there was no mistaking Labonte‘s thoughts on Black Veil Brides frontman Andy Biersack. You can find those via his Facebook or in the screencap below:

All That Remains' Phil Labone On Black Veil Bride's Andy Biersack


  • Bitter Old Man

    Can ya blame him? Needed to be said!

  • tentonwolf

    Piss on black veil brides!

  • jrr

    Geez, no wonder that guy had to cancel some shows after something so trivial as a broken nose. The phrase “man up” clearly does not apply to him.

    • thefallenking

      I’m pretty sure it was like 2 broken ribs.

      • jrr

        Huh, well that’d be different. I don’t care enough to look it up, but if that was the case, then I shift all blame to wook’s article on it, ’cause all it mentioned was a broken nose.

  • allichs

    lulz, but Phil became a pussy over the years as well.

  • Weird_White_Dude

    A frail goth chick Vs. A bro with a nipple ring

    Seems like a fair match up to me.

  • RxInfection

    He used “lulz” and a upper case “FAGGOT” insult in the same sentence. Homophobic much there Phil? I think deciding which person is a bigger closet homosexual is absolutely redundant. It’s like trying to decide which piece of shit smells worse. Cow shit or dog shit? Both. Both are shit.

  • Dave

    not a huge all that remains fan, but all that remains vs black veil brides? Ill take ATR anyday

    • Aggroculture

      ATR are a joke. Mass metal b-listers, forever behind KSE and SF. And Phil Labonte is clearly a brainless shitstain. Report the douche to FB for hatespeech and get his profile pulled.

      • MARIACHI EL willX

        third you cats feelings, minus the snitch reporting shit. however, bvb should be made fun of by all. but there is no need to insult gay folk in order to do it.

  • adamonfire

    I’m certainly an ATR fan, but Phil should be well above this. I mean figuratively, ‘cuz he’s pretty short.

  • j from nj

    Not to be p.c….but, to be p.c….Labonte’s use of the word “faggot” is kind of gay.

  • SteveTango

    “You mad cause I sing too much now?”

    Yeah…yeah I am. Along with becoming the biggest band on Prosthetic, you gained that vagina you call a singing voice. You mad, bro? Lulz.

    • MARIACHI EL willX

      wicked burn duder!

      • SteveTango

        Hah, thanks. Somehow, I envision a real-life Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back moment where Phil shows up at my front door asking if I said above statement, and proceeds to bash my skull in, hahaha.

  • dlux

    Atr has been a joke since “this calling”. Being the “biggest” band on prosthetic isn’t a big deal. They kind of are by default. Lamb of god are on epic and himsa broke up. Atr couldn’t hold a candle to either of them.

  • cma3585

    I hope some day Phil actually realizes he can’t really sing. Sure, the studio fixes him up fine, but live he is just brutal on the clean vocals. Can’t hack it at all.

    • Dave

      man, the singing of what I saw on their live dvd on YT was absolute garbage. ATR would be better as an obscure Deathcore band than as the mainstream A7X type bullshit they try to pull now.

    • SteveTango

      Imagine having to see that pile of rubbish replacing Howard Jones live for KsE like I did a couple years ago…waste of my damn money.

  • thefallenking

    Prosthetic records? Never heard of em. Probably because they suck dick. good metal label? Metalblade, Sumerian Century Media, hell even Victory has a few respectable bands. Andy may look weird, but he’s funny, and tall as fuck. 6’4, i think. anyway, show’s how respectful Phil is. He was a marine? Big whoop, he knows how to fight, you don’t need a brain to be a marine, just a big ego. Music wise, I prefer BVB simply because I feel they have a more technical prowess. Both bands have shitty vocalists. well.. ATR is shitty in general. Haha.

    • Dave

      what ‘technical prowess’ am i missing in bvb’s music?

      • Vautour

        I guess it takes a lot of technical prowess to be able to suck dick 24/7.

      • thefallenking

        Ya know, I’m not sure. I was half asleep when I wrote this. BVB’s music doesn’t suck, it’s actually good. Their vocals or image is what most people dislike. you cannot sit their and tell me that their guitarists have no talent. I just don’t like ATR’s sound. It bugs me. Not heavy enough. but this is just my opinion, others’ will vary.

      • Dave

        I actively despise BVBs sound, and even though i don’t like oli herbert’s solos, there still is no question he is a million times better than bvbs guitarists

      • adamonfire

        thefallenking, you do realize ATR did make music before The Fall of Ideals, right? TFoI is a pretty damn good album in its own right, also.

  • MustardTiger

    If Beavis were here , he would pick the hot chick from bvb, because Phil looks too much like mr.buzzcut the dickhead gym teacher.

    • bloodshots

      I take it you didn’t read the title of the article very well. That “hot chick” is not hot, nor a chick. Just a dude named Andy wearing a lot of makeup.

  • The Shark™

    The best sounds ever produced by BVB were when that douche taco’d himself and broke his ribs.

  • Kaine Muse

    Do you think Phil and Ivan Moody wear tapout shirts while they buttf*ck each other on their piles of money saying things like “Tell me I sold out”, “Tell me my fans hate me now”.

    Too graphic?

    • Kaine Muse

      I hate BVB by the way. Mostly because their gimmick and music sucks, but part of it is because they had one girl that wanted to sleep with them and recorded her being a slut and put in on youtube. My girlfriend hates that chick (yes she knowns her) so she gets a kick out of it.

  • metalcorefag

    I’ve loved ATR for a long time, but as of recently I’ve seen what a hilariously pathetic windbag Phil is. He really is just a lot of hot air, but I’m not excusing the necessity of using the word ‘FAGGOT’ in all capital letters on a public forum to describe one of his contemporaries. If Phil wasn’t such pea-brained dickwrinkle, he’d realize, whether he likes it or not, that BVB are his contemporaries. They are both mainstream “metal” bands. I’m sure he thinks he’s a big ballsy boy by making pissy comments about the head of his record label and other bands he may cross paths with in the near future, but he should be a little more careful with the things he says.

    His facebook and twitter are also used as a daily platform to spew his political and personal beliefs as if they are gospel, enhanced with such nuggets as “it is NOT your constitutional right to get your feelings hurt” and “you get mad, you lose.” It’s really funny because plenty of his fans and followers call him out on his shit, which causes him to…you guessed it…get pissy and hurt.

    • SteveTango

      I think you meant butthurt, because let’s face it; angry, juicehead bros with homophobic tendencies usually end up being bottoms for other funboys.

  • JohnnyRuthless

    Phil Labo(tomy) strikes again…………..

  • Brell

    ATR might be the biggest band on Prosthetic, but the BEST Prosthetic band is definitely Gojira.

    • SteveTango

      Debatable…there’s Animals As Leaders, Junius, Through the Eyes of the Dead, and The Acacia Strain…but Gojira is no joke.

  • bloodshots

    I’m not a fan of either, however I loathe BvB. I find it hilarious though how people mistake that guy for a chick though. The “faggot” comment is idiotic for innumerable reasons, even PC aside. When you see that guy, what is the first word that comes to mind? I guess I’d say the same thing if I were an ignorant hypocrite who doesn’t realize that not everyone uses the word “faggot” to describe obnoxious women-like males who aren’t even making any real statement, rather than to insult homosexuals. Then again, when I look at his picture the first word that comes to mind is “douchebag”, music aside since yeah, ATR has written some decent stuff.
