The reunited SHADOWS FALL entered the studio last month with producer Chris “Zeuss” Harris to commence the recording process for their new material
Speaking to the “Nothing Shocking Podcast” about the band’s decision to work with Zeuss again, SHADOWS FALL drummer Jason Bittner said (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “[Zeuss] did all of our records except for… Well, he had a hand in all of them except for [2012’s] ‘Fire From The Sky’… So he’s always been involved with SHADOWS FALL in some way, shape or form. Once this whole reunion thing kind of morphed from being just a one-show thing, we started talking with him, ’cause he still lives two minutes away from Paul [Romanko, bass].
“So, it’s, like, ‘All right. Well, if you guys are getting back together, what’s the next step? Are we making another record?’ We’re, like, ‘Well, we don’t know.’ And he was, like, ‘Whatever we’re doing, let’s get on it.’ So kind of, like, we just sort of figured, ‘We don’t have any money to pay you, because we don’t have any money because we don’t have a record label or anything.’ But he was just, like, ‘Well, let’s just start doing this and let’s do it together.’ So that’s pretty much where we’re at right now. We’re just gonna start recording some material that we have and we’re gonna keep working at that as the year goes on.”
In December 2021, SHADOWS FALL, hailing from their native Massachusetts, reunited for their first live performance at The Palladium in Worcester. The band also graced the stages of the Blue Ridge Rock Festival in Alton, Virginia, the Furnace Fest in Birmingham, Alabama, and the Milwaukee Metal Fest in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
In August 2014, the group issued a statement explaining that due to financial difficulties, it had become exceedingly challenging for the band to continue as a full-time endeavor.
In August 2015, the band delighted fans with several reunion shows along the U.S. East Coast. These performances took place one year after the band’s previously touted “final” European tour.
SHADOWS FALL‘s most recent album, “Fire From The Sky,” was released in May 2012 through Razor & Tie. During its initial week of release, the album sold approximately 10,000 copies in the United States, securing the No. 38 position on The Billboard 200 chart.
