SHADOWS FALL Frontman Comments On GRAMMY Nod

Nominations for the 48th annual Grammy Awards were announced last week by The Recording Academy, which included a nod for SHADOWS FALL in the "Best Metal Performance" category. The group was nominated for their Active Rock hit "What Drives The Weak" alongside such acclaimed artists as MINISTRY, MUDVAYNE, RAMMSTEIN and SLIPKNOT. The track is featured on the group’s latest offering, "The War Within", which originally debuted at No. 20 on The Billboard 200 chart and is quickly approaching 250,000 units sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The album garnered accolades in such mainstream publications as Billboard, Blender and Giant, among others, while SHADOWS FALL were also hailed as a "Band To Watch In 2005" by Rolling Stone, Spin and Stuff magazines.

Brian Fair (vocals) further describes his excitement over their first Grammy nomination: "So SHADOWS FALL has been nominated for a Grammy! How friggin crazy is that. Never in a million years would I have thought that a small metal band from Massachusetts would get this type of honor and acknowledgement from the music industry. This was something we had never thought about when we began writing songs together. This is proof that if you stick to your guns and put 100 percent of yourself into something the sky is the limit. We know that we would not be where we are today without the support and energy that we have received from all our fans. This nomination is a testament to that. I can’t wait to party L.A. style at the Grammies. Finally, my chance to meet Gwen Stefani has arrived! hahahaha. The Cristal is on me."

The Grammy Awards ceremony will be broadcast live by CBS on February 8, 2006 at 8:00 p.m. EST. To learn more please visit www.grammy.com. SHADOWS FALL will also perform a special one-off show at the Pearl Street Nightclub in Northampton, MA on December 30. This will be your last chance to see the band live for a few months and the show will feature some new material, as well as some stuff you may not have heard in awhile.
