Massachusetts metallers SHADOWS FALL have issued the following update:
"Just checking in from the road to let you know we have some exciting news to announce. This summer we will be playing one of the dates on OZZY OSBOURNE's Monsters Of Rock festival.
"July 26th we will be at McMahon Stadium in Calgary (Alberta) with an awesome lineup including OZZY, JUDAS PRIEST, SERJ TANKIAN, HATEBREED, CAVALERA CONSPIRACY, VOIVOD, TESTAMENT, 3 INCHES OF BLOOD, PRIESTESS, ZIMMERS HOLE and THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN.
"Also just a reminder that the 'Of One Blood' remix / remaster hits stores tomorrow. If you didn't take advantage of the presale then head out to your local record store tomorrow and pick it up.
"We just kicked off our April headline tour and it's already been an awesome time. Hope to see you on the road."
Holland's FaceCulture recently conducted an interview with SHADOWS FALL singer Brian Fair about about ARCH ENEMY, DRAGONFORCE, playing live, losing his cousin, not sleeping, the war in Iraq, being vegetarian, songwriting, being a band, conspiracy theories, MEGADETH, and much more.
Watch the first part of the interview below. The other five parts can be found at this location.
SHADOWS FALL recently received a Grammy nomination in the "Best Metal Performance" category for "Redemption", the first single from the band's newest release, "Threads of Life". This marked SHADOWS FALL's second Grammy nomination in the category, following the group's nod at the 2006 awards for "What Drives The Weak" off the Century Media release "The War Within".
SHADOWS FALL's overview of its years as a Century Media recording act (before signing with Atlantic for the U.S. and Roadrunner for Europe), "Seeking the Way: The Greatest Hits", was released in late October.
SHADOWS FALL will reissue its Century Media debut, "Of One Blood", on April 15.
A SHADOWS FALL B-side from the "Threads of Life" sessions called "Stupid Crazy" is included on the "Resident Evil: Extinction" soundtrack, which was released in September 2007 via Lakeshore Records.
