Wantagh - Mike Martin from the heavy metal band All That Remains sat down and chatted with Digital Journal prior to their May 25 concert at Mulcahy's Pub and Concert Hall on Long Island.
On being at Mulcahy's, Martin said, "It feels good. It's our first time here. I'm just enjoying the huge pretzel and the pretzel buns on the burgers."
When asked what the fans can expect to hear at Mulcahy's, he said, "A wide variety from the entire catalog. Mostly material from the last 11 years. A little bit of everything."
He listed "Safe House" and "If I'm Honest" as his two favorite songs on the new album, Madness, and he complimented the ballad "Far from Home." "I wrote the music to that song," Martin said, referring to "Far From Home." "That song sounds really cool acoustic too. I hope to do an acoustic version someday."
Regarding their plans for the future, Martin said, "Touring and then recording more. Hopefully, keep it going as long as we can."
All That Remains stays actively connected with their fans. "We just did our meet and greet, and a lot of the band members are out drinking at the bar. Oli and Jason, our drummer, usually hang out at the bar. Philip [Labonte] has to hide since he has to save his voice. Other than that, we are pretty accessible," he said.
On the key to longevity in the music industry, he said, "Songs that people remember. If you write a song that people remember, it lasts forever. We play 'This Calling' every night, which is 11 years old, and people sing it all the time."
For aspiring bands, he said, "Go to college first, and have an outside music plan first. Be really persistent and stick with it. It doesn't happen overnight, and it takes some patience."
