Shadows Fall Deny Rumours Of Split With Their Label

SHADOWS FALL vocalist Brian Fair has checked in with the following update:

"What’s up everyone? We hope everyone had a nice Easter Weekend.

Now that we’re home from our crazy Australian – Asian tour, I wanted to share some stories with all of you. But before we get into that, I wanted to briefly touch on a subject.

Since returning home, we have been made aware of some rumours involving ourselves and our record label. Let me make this very clear ... we have no intention of splitting with our label. Atlantic Records and Roadrunner Worldwide have been amazing to us throughout the release of Threads Of Life and we look forward to continuing our working relationship with both on our next release. It appears that some people out there don’t know the difference between "rumours" and actual "news". Somehow we were linked to a blind news item that mentioned neither us or our label and a few people decided to assume it was us. Well, we all know what happens when you ASSume ...

And now that the serious stuff is through, onto the stupidity..

Check out this interview (below) we did with the (not so) upstanding folks at No Good TV."

So they're not dropping off Atlantic, hmmm...... well lets just hope they get a little heavier on their next album.

I liked Threads of Life. It's a good record, and having made a catchy and predictable Shadows Fall album and seen that it didn't match the reception of prior heavier albums on a big-indie, I hope they reevaluate their direction. If not the "going back to their roots" then at least not something so straightforward.

This band can make good records and still fit big choruses with a few clean vox without ruining otherwise decent modern-thrash. Can't wait for "(Re)-Of One Blood".

Now Playing: Opeth - "The Drapery Falls"

Well I'll gurantee that if they don't sell an a$$ load more records than thread next time around, they'll be looking for a new label regardless

Since the release of their remastered "Of One Blood" I've been mixing up my own "best of" CD and "Threads of Life" definitely deserves a few songs on there. I find that I prefer a lot of "The War Within" though.

Agreed.
However much love I have for "Of One Blood", "Art of Balance", "Fallout" and "Threads"--"War" is their most well rounded album. Track for track, stronger than any of their other releases.

Now Playing: Pig Destroyer - "Alexandria"
