It’s been a long time since the world got any new Shadows Fall tunes, but there’s a distinct possibility that might change, according to frontman Brian Fair. The discussion over whether there will be new Shadows Fall music took place on Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta‘s podcast, The Jasta Show (as transcribed by Blabbermouth).
During their chat, Fair told Jasta that some work had already started working on some new material in a somewhat loose sense of the word.
“I will finally say there are riffs that are turning into skeletons that might become songs. Now, what happens with them, where they go, we’ll see. But once we started jamming [for the recent reunion shows], we were, like, ‘What’s the point of doing this without writing new riffs?’ And we had to make sure they were gonna sound like Shadows Fall; we didn’t wanna come out of nowhere with something different, out of left field. But so far, they’re coming together, man, and I’m stoked on what I’m hearing. So hopefully that’ll continue, that’ll continue on. But as far as dropping a whole record… Who knows? These days it’s different anyway. Shit, we can just drop a few random singles and then see where it goes. But I’m excited that we’re writing, that we’re doing things. And so far what I’ve heard has been amazing… I haven’t really committed, but we are finally getting our shit together and getting some riffs together.”
Shadows Fall is currently not signed to a record label, stating that they were “free and clear” to do things “kind of on our terms.” The band had been away for a long time before their first reunion show back in December 2021. Since then, the band’s hit the stage for Blue Ridge Rock Festival and Furnace Fest, among other gigs.
Asked whether the band would consider going on a more extensive run on the road as a potential opener for a major act, Fair said the band would consider it, though the timing would have to work out.
“We’re not averse to that. It takes a lot of logistics now, with the rest of my guys being in legendary thrash bands, like Anthrax and Overkill and whatnot. But if we can do it, we would love to. Right now, festivals have been something we can pull off. But I would love to do short tours or even a month-long tour. Or at least some long weekends where we hit each coast or do New England and then Midwest and then a West Coast thing. But we’ll see. We’re not saying ‘no’ to anything. We’re gonna listen. So we’ll see, if things make sense and if we can make it work.
“I’ve been in dad mode, just working nine to five for a while, so getting back on the pirate ship is pretty enticing at this point.”
