Shadows Fall Officially Added To Sounds Of The Underground
May 1, 2007
Massachusetts metal band Shadows Fall have been added to this year's Hot Topic Presents Sounds of the Underground Tour. The band will play the final co-headline slot, alternating with already announced bands Chimaira and Every Time I Die and headliners GWAR.
Shadows Fall vocalist, Brian Fair states, "It is going to be another summer of insanity for the boys in Shadows Fall and we couldn't be more stoked. Not only are we looking forward to partying with our friends in Darkest Hour, Every Time I Die, Chimaira and Gwar, but also to check out some killer music at one of the summers most diverse festival tours. We are planning on playing a set that will include songs from the early days of Shadows Fall up to our new album 'Threads of Life' and leaving a wake of devastation behind. So bust out the sun screen, put the beers on ice and get ready to rock cuz the SHADS are coming back to town".
The Springfield, Massachusetts-based five-piece's just-released new album, 'Threads of Life', is shaping up as its most successful work to date. Currently on the cover of hard rock magazine Revolver, as well as Outburn and Modern Drummer, the band is slated for additional covers of future issues of Metal Edge and Hails and Horns. The album's first single, "Redemption," is already proving a monster hit at radio, reaching #1 at Metal outlets nationwide while also scoring top 5 adds at Active Rock. Currently 30 stations have added the track. Produced by Nick Raskulinecz (Rush, Foo Fighters, Velvet Revolver), 'Threads Of Life', which debuted at #1 on the Hard Music Album Core Stores chart and #6 on the Hard Music Album Chart, has drawn rapturous critical praise from a wide range of national publications.
Other groups on this year's Hot Topic Presents Sounds of the Underground Tour include: Job For a Cowboy, Necro, Darkest Hour, Amon Amarth, The Acacia Strain, The Devil Wears Prada, Heavy Heavy Low Low, The Number Twelve Looks Like You, Goatwhore, This Is Hell, and 2 Cents.
