SHADOWS FALL Surpass The 200,000 U.S. SoundScan Plateau

SHADOWS FALL have had a triumphant year thus far, as they just completed a highly successful U.S. arena tour alongside SLIPKNOT while their critically acclaimed album, "The War Within", recently surpassed the 200,000 U.S. SoundScan plateau. Things are only just beginning to heat up for the group as they’re set to perform on the main stage at Ozzfest this summer, thereby not only becoming the first band of the New Wave of American Heavy Metal genre to achieve that honor, but one of the few in history to make the leap from the second stage to the main stage. Early next month, SHADOWS FALL will also make their way back to Europe for a few shows with SLIPKNOT along with some major festival appearances, including Download, Rock im Park and Rock am Ring, alongside delivering a special performance at the prestigious Metal Hammer Awards.

The group's latest single, "Inspiration On Demand", has exploded at commercial radio and recently broke into the top 40 on the R&R Active Rock chart. The video for the track has also been greatly embraced by Fuse, MTV2 and MTVU, who recently added it to their "Freshman" playlist. SHADOWS FALL were also recently named one of VH1's "Hear and Now: Five Massive Metal Mongers You Should Turn Up" and a "Band To Watch In 2005" by Stuff magazine. "The War Within" ranked as the third best album of 2004 in Revolver magazine's coveted Readers' Poll, while their track "The Power of I and I" also scored the fifth spot in the "Best Song" category.
