Shadows Fall to Make Live Return at 2015 Big Kahuna Festival
Do not put the final nail in Shadows Fall's coffin just yet. Things looked pretty bleak for the band's future late last summer when they announced plans to take a hiatus from extensive touring and revealed their intent to play a "final" U.S. trek. And while a major tour is not in the offing, the group will be back on the concert stage this August at the Big Kahuna Festival in Providence, RI.
The band made the announcement via their Facebook page, letting fans know they would be taking part in the event at Providence's Fete Music Hall on Aug. 22. They also revealed that more shows may be in the offing surrounding the festival as it would likely be nice to get in a touring groove leading into the event that led to their return. Check out the post below.
We are back!!!!! Saturday, August 22 SHADOWS FALL will be headlining The Big Kahuna festival at Fete music hall in Providence, RI. Also appearing will be End Time Illusion, Anaria, Carnivora, Oath, and many others on 3 stages. We may add a few more shows around this date and these could possibly, be the only Shadows Fall dates of the year.

Earlier this year, guitarist Jon Donais, who has since gone on to find work in Anthrax, revealed that after years of struggling to find their place in the metal scene, frontman Brian Fair brought up the desire to spend more time at home with his family and living a more stable life. With the hiatus going into effect, guitarist Matt Bachand joined Act of Defiance and drummer Jason Bittner landed a gig touring with Flotsam and Jetsam.
Donais told us in April, “Maybe Shadows Fall will be able to do some future one-offs, but there hasn’t been anything on the table and everyone’s going on with their lives." But the East Coast festival near the band's Massachusetts home base appears to be a good fit, and the schedules have lined up to allow for the band to get back onstage once again. Stay tuned to see if additional shows are added.
