The incredible run saw the band making stops in Korea and Japan as well as joining the high profile Soundwave 2008 tour, sharing stages with multiplatinum rock acts The Offspring and Incubus throughout Australia.

Shadows Fall are unquestionably among the most potent music forces in modern metal, having recently received a 2008 Grammy nomination for Best Metal Performance for the song "Redemption," from their critically acclaimed Atlantic debut, "THREADS OF LIFE." Clearly a leader in their genre, this marks the band's second Grammy nomination in the category, following their nod at the 2006 awards for "What Drives The Weak," from their Century Media release, "THE WAR WITHIN."

Melding full-on thrash power with melodic, pulverizing hooks, Shadows Fall are one of the preeminent metal bands of their day. The Springfield, Massachusetts-based five-piece's label debut, "THREADS OF LIFE," is their most acclaimed work to date. Produced by Nick Raskulinecz (Rush, Foo Fighters, Velvet Revolver), the album was described by Spin as "Ferocious hardcore precision, like the metal gods intended." Alternative Press awarded the album 4.5-out-of-5 stars, celebrating the collection as "the most unashamedly 'true' metal album any major label's released yet this year -- and it's also one of the best."

Shadows Fall are: Matt Bachand - guitar, vocals; Paul Romanko - bass; Brian Fair - vocals; Jason Bittner - drums; Jon Donais - lead guitar, vocals
