The band released the following statement:
“We were devastated to learn that Oli Herbert, our friend, guitar player, and founding member of All That Remains, has passed away.
Oli was an incredibly talented guitarist and songwriter who defined Rock and Metal from the Northeast. His impact on the genres and our lives will continue indefinitely.
No further details are available at this time. The band and family request that you please respect their privacy and remember Oli by celebrating the great music he made.”
