All That Remains and Major League Gaming, the professional gaming league, today announced an innovative promotion that will allow fans of the band to download a track from their highly-anticipated new album, OVERCOME one week before the album's release date. The track "Chiron" will be exclusively available from the MLG website for one week starting on September 9th. OVERCOME (Prosthetic Records/Razor & Tie Entertainment) hits streets September 16th.
All That Remains frontman Phil Labonte added, "It's really great to be working with Major League Gaming. I'm a huge fan of the organization. Besides music, gaming is another great passion of mine and I am very happy to find a way to bring the two together."
In a move to capitalize on the marriage of games and music, players are encouraged to use the music in their game play montages and send it to the MLG game room at www.gameroom.mlgpro.com. The MLG experience includes online tournaments, live events, broadcast-quality programming, and a competitive gaming social network where players and fans can express themselves through video montages, blogs, and profiles.
Two weeks ago, All That Remains frontman/die-hard video game enthusiast Phil Labonte stopped by MLG's Live Pre-Game show at the Toronto stop of the Pro Circuit on August 22, to talk with host Chris Puckett about his favorite MLG Pros, playing Halo3 on the MLG playlist, and to debut the video for "Chiron" for the MLG community. In another first, MLG's legendary team, Final Boss, will be using the All That Remains track "Two Weeks" as their theme song in MLG Pro Circuit events moving forward.
