Grammy-nominated metal band Shadows Fall has completed work on its seventh studio album, Fire From the Sky. The new album is confirmed for release in-stores and online, May 15th. Recorded at Zing Studios in late 2011, Fire Fire From the Sky reunites Shadows Fall with long-time friend, producer/engineer and Killswitch Engage/Times Of Grace guitarist, Adam Dutkiewicz (Devil Wears Prada, All That Remains). The album was mixed by Brian Virtue and features some of the band’s most complex and melodic material in years.

Vocalist Brian Fair adds, “Fire From the Sky is not a concept album by any means but a few common themes do link these songs together. These days, the world seems to be spiraling out of control into a frantic state of confusion, corruption and chaos. It's as if we are living under the shadow of an impending apocalypse. The songs on this album were inspired by this chaos and the struggle to find answers in these dark days.”

Pre-order bundles are available today in five different configurations offering a variety of items including music, t-shirts and limited edition band merch. All pre-order bundles include a poster, and both a physical copy and digital download of Fire From the Sky. Special bundles offer a selection of different bands t-shirts and a limited edition Shadows Fall flag. Pre-order bundles are available for purchase here.
