All That Remains vocalist Phil Labonte had a lot to say in a recent interview with Noisecreep. In addition to discussing the groups forthcoming album “A War You Cannot Win” (out November 06th on Razor & Tie); he shared his thoughts on gun control, politics, the recent shootings and expressing himself.

Some excerpts from that can be found below with the full feature available at the aforementioned link:

On not being afraid to express his opinions:

“You get what you get. I hate when lead singers and people in bands are so afraid of offending their fans that they don’t say how they really feel so they don’t bum people out. Well, everything you do might bum someone out so simply be yourself. I don’t like rockstars. I didn’t start playing in bands to get chicks.

When I started playing music there were no chicks to be seen. It was a sea of virgins. I’m not afraid to say this is my opinion. If you don’t like it, hit the road. What’s the big deal? If I have an opinion, it’s one individual opinion out of 6.5 billion people on Earth.

What does it mean? Absolutely nothing. So what if I said something that you don’t like. It’s not going to change the world one iota.”

On his political affiliation:

“I’m a libertarian. I believe that the government is massively expansive and has taken powers that it does not have. It should not be in the business of deciding who you should or should not be able to marry. It should not be in the business of deciding what drugs you can and cannot take and what you can put in your body.

It should not It should not be in the business of taking your money in the form of taxation. It should not be in the business of deciding if you should carry a gun. We don’t need all these federal agencies that we have. They’re a waste of money. They end up being bureaucracies. The government never ends up getting smaller. It only gets bigger.

Once a federal agency is created it never goes away. They don’t need to spend as much as they do. We don’t need to be in 130 different countries across the world. We don’t need a military as big as we have.

If we took the army and cut it by 90% that would be fine by me. I think we should we keep the navy that we have because the constitution does says that we should have a navy and if we took the naval power that we have now we can definitely protect the US and Europe.

We have nuclear weapons. What do we need a standing army for? We can downsize the army to the point where it’s just the rangers and the Special Forces and be done with it. We don’t. If someone attacks us we should retaliate with the most violent force imaginable but otherwise we shouldn’t be sticking our noses into other countries. We’d be much happier if we didn’t. If someone attacks us – nuke ‘em! [laughs]“

Lamb Of God Launch Auction To Aid The Legal Defense Fund Of Randy Blythe

Lamb Of God have launched an eBay memorabilia auction to aid with the legal defense fund of their frontman Randy Blythe. The official press release on that can be seen below

“While LAMB OF GOD singer Randy Blythe is back home in America after five weeks in prison in the Czech Republic, his legal problems are far from over. Manslaughter charges are still hanging over Blythe and at some point over the next few months he will have to return to Prague and stand trial. Faced with continuing massive legal bills, LAMB OF GOD has decided to create an eBay auction of equipment and memorabilia to raise money for Randy’s legal bills. All equipment was either used on tour or in the recording studio or in a video. The auction features items provided by all five members of LAMB OF GOD.

In addition, a number of musicians have offered equipment to be used in the auction. Guitars have been donated by Machine Head’s Robb Flynn and Phil Demmel as well as Slash and Five Finger Death Punch. Megadeth’s David Ellefson and Five Finger Death Punch’s Chris Kael have each contributed a bass and the members of Five Finger Death Punch also have contributed a signed skateboard.

Justice Now, the site set up for donations, will remain open for those wishing to donate to Randy’s defense fund. The band appreciates all of the support Randy has received since his arrest on June 28th and is thankful for all of the donations that have been made in these tough economic times. As stated before, without the fans, there is no LAMB OF GOD.
