SHADOWS FALL singer Brian Fair has issued the following update:
"It has been a whirlwind week in the SHADOWS FALL camp. We just returned home after an amazing European tour with our good friends in KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, CHIMAIRA and GOD FORBID with some crazy festivals thrown in along the way. A huge thank you to everyone that came out to support a bunch of American metal heads causing trouble in your countries. Every show was incredible and we look forward to a return trip sometime next year.
"While we were traveling abroad, we received some amazing news about the current sales status for our last record, 'The Art Of Balance'. A few weeks ago, our album reached over 100,000 sold in the US!!! This is an unbelievable accomplishment for a small metal band from Massachusetts. We can not thank everyone that bought our album enough. In the day of music downloading and CD burning this is a huger statement about the growth of the underground metal scene. Next stop platinum baby!!! hahahaha. We just wrapped up a video shoot for the song 'The Power Of I And I' (mp3) off our upcoming release 'The War Within'. It was a great time and we were joined by many of our friends for the shoot. Thanks to our director Dale Resteghini from Raging Nation Films and all the guys from LAMB OF GOD, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, ATREYU, EVERY TIME I DIE, GOD FORBID, HATEBREED, LACUNA COIL, UNEARTH and DEVILDRIVER for coming down and making it such a good time. See ya on the road."
SHADOWS FALL's new album, "The War Within", is scheduled for release on September 21 through Century Media Records. The follow-up to the band's critically acclaimed disc, "The Art of Balance", was produced by Zeuss (HATEBREED) at Planet Z Studios in the band's home state of Massachusetts. "The War Within", the band's fourth full-length release, features 10 tracks of "sonic devastation" and is said to be the group's "most unrelenting, yet dynamic offering that further proves why they are the undisputed leaders of their genre."
