Atlantic recording group SHADOWS FALL has unveiled a whirlwind of activity surrounding the upcoming release of their new album, "Threads of Life". The much-anticipated collection — which features the single, "Redemption" — arrives in stores on April 3.
This week will see the "Redemption" companion video making its world premiere as MTV2's "Unleashed" clip of the day, airing hourly today, March 26. Tomorrow, SHADOWS FALL will be the featured band on MTV2's "The Drop", found at this location. In addition, "Redemption" — directed by Zach Merck (BLUE OCTOBER, HINDER, CONVERGE) — will be seen on an upcoming installment of Fuse's Friday night metalfest, "Uranium".
"Threads of Life" was produced by Nick Raskulinecz (RUSH, FOO FIGHTERS, VELVET REVOLVER). "Redemption" is already lighting a fire at radio, reaching #1 at Metal Radio on the Mediaguide Metal Specialty Tracks while also scoring major play at Active Rock.
SHADOWS FALL is currently on the road as part of the annual Jägermeister Music Tour. The multi-artist bill sees the critically acclaimed metal outfit sharing the stage with STONE SOUR and LACUNA COIL. Furthermore, SHADOWS FALL has partnered up with Sam Ash Music, Ibanez Guitars and Basses, Revolver magazine, and Hot Topic to present the "Shred for Life" sweepstakes.
