Shadows Fall has just wrapped recording their seventh official studio album at Zing Studios. Slated for a late spring 2012 release, the new record reunites the band with long-time friend, producer/engineer and Killswitch Engage/Times Of Grace guitarist, Adam Dutkiewicz. Adam D., who has previously helmed the boards on albums for All That Remains, As I Lay Dying, Unearth, The Devil Wears Prada, and Every Time I Die, is also intimately involved in the writing of the new Shadows Fall material.
Formed in 1996, Shadows Fall emerged from Springfield, Massachusetts in 1996 as a D.I.Y. band that ultimately found legions of fans, worldwide fame, Grammy nominations, and rock radio success. The band has released six studio albums, two DVDs, a collection of B-sides and one Greatest Hits compilation, selling over 770,000 to date and has had music featured on the hugely popular video game series Guitar Hero. With the band’s sound often described as having an unmistakable, seamless blend of metal and hard rock, Shadows Fall has grown to help define the very essence of modern aggressive music, showcasing their distinctive mix of bone-splintering aggression and melodic nuance. Shadows Fall has toured extensively with such bands as Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Stone Sour, Lacuna Coil, Trivium, Dragonforce, Killswitch Engage, As I Lay Dying, Slipknot, Five Finger Death Punch, Lamb Of God.
