Massachusetts metallers SHADOWS FALL have tapped Brandon Lundeen from TRUMPET THE HARLOT and Jay Waterman from THY WILL BE DONE to sit behind the drums for their upcoming shows while SHADOWS FALL drummer Jason Bittner continues to receive treatment for acute pancreatitis.

Commented Bittner: "As of last week, I was told to rest for one more week and then as long as I'm feeling better, I can resume starting to play again in order to recoup and rejoin the tour. At this present time, it's hard to say exactly when I will be 110% — maybe a week, maybe two, maybe even longer — but rest assured I will be doing my best to get back as soon as humanly possible without chancing a relapse.

"I appreciate all the well-wishing and support, so in my absence please still go and support my other bandmates and the Party To The Apocalypse tour! I shall return."

SHADOWS FALL's first headlining tour in support of their 2012 album, "Fire From The Sky", will also feature GOD FORBID, THY WILL BE DONE and TRUMPET THE HARLOT.
