Shadows Fall Stays off the Road and in the Studio; Intensity of New Album Sessions Forces Tour Cancellation

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 25, 2006 --Atlantic recording group Shadows Fall has reluctantly decided that the intensity of their current recording sessions has made it impossible for the band to hit the concert trail next month for their previously announced shows with Killswitch Engage and Bury Your Dead. The Springfield, MA-based rock outfit is hard at work in the studio with producer Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Stone Sour, Rush) recording their highly anticipated Atlantic debut, due in early 2007.

"We are all very disappointed that we will not be able to hit the road with our friends in Killswitch Engage and Bury Your Dead," said Shadows Fall lead singer Brian Fair. "Originally, we had hoped to complete the recording of our new album in time for the beginning of the tour on November 9th, but now it appears that will not be possible. New ideas have continued to surface and push the songs into new directions that we have to pursue. Making the best album possible is our number one priority and something we must focus on one hundred percent at this time. We sincerely apologize to all the people that planned on coming to see us at these shows, but our absence is no reason not to go and support this tour. Our bros from New England in Killswitch Engage and Bury Your Dead will be throwing it down the way only they can and this should not be missed by anyone!! We will keep you posted as we wrap up the album and make plans to get back on the road."

The Killswitch Engage/Bury Your Dead itinerary will begin as scheduled on November 9th at Tremont Music Hall in Charlotte, NC, with dates continuing through December 20th at Lupo's at The Strand in Providence, RI. Massachusetts' All That Remains will be part of the tour's lineup through the November 26th show at the Big Easy Concert House in Spokane, WA. For the most up to date information about the tour, including upcoming announcements about the support for the second half of tour, go to www.killswitchengage.com.

Shadows Fall's as-yet untitled new album 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.

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