Jason Bittner, drummer for Massachusetts metal mavens Shadows Fall, has spilled the beans on the group's upcoming seventh album, Blabbermouth.net repots. In the comments section of his YouTube channel, Bittner announced that 'Fire From the Sky' will drop May 8 via Razor & Tie, the label they signed with late last year.

The new material was produced by Adam Dutkiewicz of Killswitch Engage. The guitarist, who helped write this latest batch of songs, comes to the project having produced albums by such cheerily named groups as As I Lay Dying, Every Time I Die and All That Remains.

'Fire From the Sky' follows 2009's 'Retribution,' a collection that debuted at No. 35 on the Billboard 200. After finishing out a run of intimate U.S. dates, Shadows Fall jets to Australia for the Soundwave Festival.
