Shadows Fall signs with Razor & Tie
Shadows Fall has signed a multi-album, North American deal with Razor & Tie. This week the band begins recording a new studio album at Zing Recording Studios in Westfield, MA with producer/engineer Adam Dutkiewicz (of Killswitch Engage). "We haven't had this type of fire underneath us to make a record in a long time. I feel that with our new partnerships in place, as well as bringing Adam D on board to produce, together, we've brought a renewed life to the band which will result in the best Shadows Fall record to date," commented Shadows Fall drummer Jason Bittner. "Shadows Fall is very excited about our new partnership with Razor & Tie. The music industry has been in such a constant state of flux these days, it takes a progressive approach and a willingness to rethink the antiquated business model in order to achieve the success we still long for and desire. Razor & Tie is a company that embraces this idea and understands what it takes to promote and support a band in today's market place. We are looking forward to working with a team that not only understands our band, but also has the knowledge and desire to help us achieve our goals," adds Shadows Fall lead vocalist Brian Fair. "Shadows Fall has always been a band that tried our hardest to not be confined by the restraints of a single sub-genre of metal. We cover a ton of ground on this new album-- encompassing everything we have done musically over our career and incorporating new ideas into the mix. Our influences are an eclectic mix that cover the full spectrum of heavy music and it's always been our goal to combine those ideas into our own unique sound that is constantly evolving. The songs on this forthcoming new record reflect that goal to the fullest."
