Shadows Fall Added to Sounds of the Underground

Shadows Fall have been added to this year's Hot Topic Presents Sounds of the Underground Tour. The band will play the final co-headline slot, alternating with already announced bands Chimaira and Every Time I Die and headliners GWAR.

Shadows Fall vocalist Brian Fair says, "It is going to be another summer of insanity for the boys in Shadows Fall and we couldn't be more stoked. Not only are we looking forward to partying with our friends in Darkest Hour, Every Time I Die, Chimaira and Gwar, but also to check out some killer music at one of the summer’s most diverse festival tours. We are planning on playing a set that will include songs from the early days of Shadows Fall up to our new album, Threads of Life, and leaving a wake of devastation behind. So bust out the sun screen, put the beers on ice and get ready to rock cuz the Shads are coming back to town."

Other groups on this year's Hot Topic Presents Sounds of the Underground Tour include: Job for a Cowboy, Necro, Darkest Hour, Amon Amarth, the Acacia Strain, the Devil Wears Prada, Heavy Heavy Low Low, the Number Twelve Looks Like You, Goatwhore, This Is Hell and 2 Cents.

Sounds of the Underground 2007 will also feature various special appearances along the tour. Thrash metal veterans Testament will play before GWAR at the Starland Ballroom on July 14 in New Jersey. Mushroomhead will close the show in their hometown of Cleveland, Ohio on July 21 and will also perform as special guests in Columbus on July 22, Chicago on July 23, and Minneapolis on July 24. The legendary Suicidal Tendencies will close shows in San Jose, California on August 3, Irvine, California on August 4, and Mesa, Arizona on August 5. Modern thrash titans Lamb of God will headline a recently added date on August 11 in Louisville, Kentucky and will be joined by special guests Hatebreed and Behemoth.
