Shadows Fall Hits the Studio; Atlantic Records Debut Expected in Spring 2007

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 18, 2006 -- Atlantic recording group Shadows Fall is currently in the studio recording their highly anticipated major label debut with producer Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Stone Sour, Rush). The still untitled project is the Grammy-nominated band's follow-up to 2004's critically acclaimed "THE WAR WITHIN," and its companion release, 2006's "FALLOUT FROM THE WAR," both released on Century Media Records.

After headlining this summer's STHRESS Tour with such supporting acts as Suffocation and Poison The Well, Shadows Fall headed straight back to their rehearsal space to begin pre-production. Today, September 18th, the band enters Studio 606 in Northridge, CA to begin recording. Says singer Brian Fair, "I cannot wait to finally get this started! We have been working on these songs for the past few months in the practice space and are ready to lay them down in the studio. Pre-production with Nick has been amazing. He is definitely on the same page as us, musically and personally. He is a lifelong fan of metal but also has a great understanding of rock and roll, which complements our style and sound perfectly." Raskulinecz adds, "I've wanted to work with this band for years and had to bug the hell out of them until they said yes. We're going to tighten the songs so that every riff, every lyric, every drum hit counts on this record, and really focus on the songwriting to make it a force to be dealt with."

Based in Springfield, Massachusetts, Shadows Fall first garnered attention from the underground metal scene with their first three releases, "SOMBER EYES TO THE SKY," "OF ONE BLOOD," and "THE ART OF BALANCE." Known for their unrelenting live performances, they have toured with a diverse array of artists, among them Slipknot, Damageplan, Misfits, Lamb Of God, In Flames, Killswitch Engage and Glassjaw. The group's 2004 breakthrough album, "THE WAR WITHIN," not only debuted at #20 on the Billboard 200 chart but also earned the group a Grammy nomination for Best Metal Performance and secured them a spot on Ozzfest's 2005 main stage.

Shadows Fall is: Brian Fair (Vocals); Jon Donais (Guitars); Matt Bachand (Guitars); Paul Romanko (Bass); Jason Bittner (Drums).
