SHADOWS FALL Announces Another The War Within Celebration Show For This December

Another war.


Shadows Fall celebrated 20 years of The War Within in New Jersey this past May, and they're doing it again dammit! Except this time it's happening on December 21 at The Palladium in Worcester, MA.

"Shadows Fall is coming back to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of The War Within December 21st 2024 at The Palladium in Worcester MA!!" wrote the band. "We will be playing the album in full as well as songs from our entire career.

"A perfect way to start the holidays! No better gift than a VIP package featuring a general admission ticket, early entry, souvenir lanyard, limited edition t shirt, poster and cassette as well as a meet and greet and photo opp with the whole band!"

As for new Shadows Fall, it's coming! The band has been in the studio for the better part of a year with producer Zeuss, who participated in all of Shadows Fall's music between Of One Blood in 2000 and Retribution in 2009.

In a recent interview with WSOU 89.5 FM, Shadows Fall frontman Brian Fair said the new material is a combination of everything the band has ever done with some of their side project vibes thrown in for good measure. As for a release schedule, Fair said Shadows Fall is hoping to get some songs out in 2024 with maybe a vinyl compilation to tie it all up at the end of the year.

"Honestly, it's gonna be everything that we've always done, plus more. And we're probably about — I'd say we've got six or seven songs that are actually songs. They're still gonna get some some tweaks here and there, with a few other ideas still floating around that need to be worked on.

"But I don't know what time frame — we're not pushing any sort of deadlines on ourselves 'cause it's been, man, since 2014 since we dropped any new music so we're not in a rush. We wanna get it as perfect as we can, we wanna be as happy with it as we can, and [we're] not having label pressure to finish by a certain time. It's also a new day and age where you can release it in such different ways than we were used to back then, and that's really exciting as well.

"I don't know if we'll drop some songs here and there and then put it all out together on vinyl at the end. I have no idea about that stuff yet. We'll work all that out, but I'm super excited about these songs. I've also been pushing myself as a singer to really expand my range to try new ideas, and having the time to work through that has been really helpful.

"'Cause even when Shadows Fall was doing downtime, I was doing different projects and trying to really bring some new elements to what I do, and I'm putting all that into this record. So it'll sound like Shadows Fall, but there'll definitely be some some new interesting ideas and approaches and stuff. So it's really exciting."

As for the reason behind writing new material, Fair said the decision was the next logical step after rehearsing for the reunion shows.

"For us, it's just been great to be back in the room jamming on new material, 'cause when we got together to do these [reunion] shows, when we're rehearsing, we were, like, 'If we're putting this work in, why not see what happens with new music?' And I couldn't be happier with how it's coming out. So, really exciting."
