Shadows Fall reunited for one show in December 2021 and it's been snowballing from there. Shadows Fall has since played a handful of festival dates and shows, and now it seems they're turning their attention to their first new material since 2012's Fire From The Sky.
In an interview with The Jasta Show, Shadows Fall frontman Brian Fair said the band is working on new material but is unsure how they'll actually put it out.
"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."
Fair also notes that Shadows Fall is currently without a record label, which he sounds pretty stoked about. "We were luckily free and clear for a while, so even our last couple of records were done kind of on our own terms," he said.
