Shadows Fall Drop Off 2013 European + UK Tours

Razor & Tie Shadows Fall  had been set for a big spring overseas. The band had booked dates with Testament  in Europe and  Ill Nino  in the UK, but now they’ve bowed out of both of those tours.  Shadows Fall revealed that they were exiting the upcoming treks due to “a number of circumstances beyond our control.” It is unknown what those circumstances are. However, the band as a whole appears to be okay having just completed an early year tour with Hatebreed , Dying Fetus and The Contortionist . It is known that guitarist Jon Donais would be taking leave from the band over the next couple of months (with Shadows Fall’s encouragement) to play with Anthrax in Australia and on that group’s ‘Metal Alliance’ U.S. tour this spring. But it is not known if his absence played into the band bowing out of their overseas dates. The group offered their statement on the matter in a Facebook posting that reads as follows: Due to a number of circumstances beyond our control, Shadows Fall has been forced to cancel our upcoming European tour with Testament and our co-headlining UK run with Ill Niño. We tried everything we could to make this tour happen and exhausted all options we could think of but unfortunately we were not able to work it out. We sincerely apologize to all the fans, promoters and bands involved. Everyone in Shadows Fall thank you for understanding and we plan on making it up to our European fans as soon as possible. Shadows Fall have been promoting their ‘ Fire From the Sky ‘ album, which dropped last May. The disc has already spawned the title track and the follow-up single ‘ The Unknown .’ [button href=”http://loudwire.com/shadows-fall-thoughts-without-words-top-21st-century-metal-songs/” title=”Next: Shadows Fall – Top 21st Century Metal Songs” align=”center”]

Bad Religion Perform New Song ‘Past Is Dead’ on ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’

Epitaph Punk rock legends Bad Religion made an awesome appearance on ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon’ last night (Jan. 30) to perform the new song ‘Past is Dead’ from their sixteenth studio album, ‘True North.’ Bad Religion have been putting out solid records for over 30 years, and with hardcore fans still cemented into the band’s foundation, ‘True North’ gave the group their highest Billboard 200 debut in their history. In the first week of release, ‘True North’ hit No. 18 on the chart, selling 18,295 copies of the album. Before taking the ‘Jimmy Fallon’ stage last night, bassist Jay Bentley thanked fans via Bad Religion’s Facebook page: Sitting backstage at the jimmy fallon show getting ready to play “the past is dead” tonight and we’re talking about how amazing the response to “True North” has been. it’s so humbling to be given this opportunity after 33 years, and how none of this would be possible without all of you… so it is with the utmost humility that we would like to say Thank YOU. -jay & the rest We recently sat down with Bad Religion bassist Jay Bentley, drummer Brooks Wackerman and guitarist Brian Baker, so look out for our exclusive interview soon!
