All That Remains & The Great Bass Switcheroo

Bassist Jeanne Sagan is leaving All That Remains to “pursue personal interests.”  The amicable split means the band has a new face behind the beat.  The change will not affect ATR’s upcoming dates.

Today’s announcement comes with three pull-quotes from everyone involved.  We start with Ms. Sagan.

“It is with heavy heart that I depart from All That Remains.  I’ve decided to follow my heart and pursue other opportunities in life. I truly appreciate the amazing experiences and the great fans over the last decade. I wish ATR all the best going forward.”

Next up is All That Remains vocalist Phil Labonte:

“So after nearly 10 years Jeanne Sagan has decided to close the All That Remains chapter in her life.  Everyone in ATR wishes nothing but happiness and success in any and all of her future endeavors.  We are excited to announce All That Remains’ new bass player is a fine young man by the name of Aaron Patrick.  He’s been a friend for years, formerly of Bury Your Dead and has played forLamb Of God and DevilDriver among others.  We’re sure he’s going to be the perfect fit and considering his musical history I think he’s going to add a new and cool dimension to ATR’s sound moving forward.  Come check us out and see Aaron rock on the Hard Drive Live Fallout Tour.”

And no bass switcheroo would be complete without a few words from the new thumper.

“I am beyond excited to step in and play bass for All That Remains,” Patrick said.  “We’ve toured together over the years and have become close friends, so the family element is already there.  I’m looking forward to kicking off this next tour in Japan at Loud Park and then onward to the HardDrive Fallout Tour.  Let’s fuggin’ party!”
