Shadows Fall is Working on New Music, but Has No Immediate Plans for a New Release

In a new interview with Jamey Jasta of Hatebreed’s podcast The Jasta Show, Brian Fair of Shadows Fall shared a lot of past, present, and future details about the band. Shadows Fall is performing this weekend at Jasta’s rejuvenated Milwaukee Metalfest this weekend. Among the many anecdotes and stories shared by Brian, including previous reunion shows at the Worcester Palladium, Blue Ridge Rock Fest and Furnace Fest, he volunteered that the band is working on “the skeletons” of parts for new songs and promised some new “Shadows Fall music down the road.” Additionally, the band is not currently signed to a label, so Fair said the band will listen to all offers, but also doesn’t yet have a timetable currently for a release. The two-hour conversation is one of the most hilarious and informative Jasta episodes of late, so check it out and read Brian’s comments below.


Brian commented:

I will finally say there are riffs that are turning into skeletons that might become songs. Now, what happens with them, where they go, we’ll see. But once we started jamming [for the recent reunion shows], we were, like, ‘What’s the point of doing this without writing new riffs?’ And we had to make sure they were gonna sound like Shadows Fall; we didn’t wanna come out of nowhere with something different, out of left field.

But so far, they’re coming together, man, and I’m stoked on what I’m hearing. So hopefully that’ll continue, that’ll continue on. But as far as dropping a whole record… Who knows? These days it’s different anyway. Shit, we can just drop a few random singles and then see where it goes. But I’m excited that we’re writing, that we’re doing things. And so far what I’ve heard has been amazing… I haven’t really committed, but we are finally getting our shit together and getting some riffs together.
