Shadows Fall is getting back together again.

More than six years after its most recent live show, Shadows Fall will reunite this fall for a new, one-off show. The concert is scheduled to take place Dec. 18 at the Palladium in Worcester, MA.

Tickets are available here. VIP packages go on sale Wednesday. A local pre-sale for VIP packages launches at 10 a.m. Thursday. Audiences can use the promo code “WEEEE” to get access to the VIP packages during the local pre-sale. The local regular sale launches at 10 a.m. loacl time Friday.

Front man Brian Fair said in a prepared statement, he is looking forward to the concert.

“As the wise prophet D.L.R. once said, ‘I HEARD YA MISSED US, WE’RE BACK,'” said Fair. “I couldn’t be more excited to be getting back onstage with my brothers in Shadows Fall and there is no room I would rather do it in than The Palladium in Worcester. It has been six years since we last played a show and we are ready to unleash the fury like Yngwie.”

Added Fair, “We have been trying to find a way to jam together and play live for a little while now and the planets have finally aligned, schedules worked out, and with the help of a ton of our good friends, we were able to pull it off. This is the only show we have planned so shine up your dancing shoes, stretch out your neck, crack a brew, and get your ass to Massachusetts!”

Fair concluded, “[Guitarists] Matt [Bachand] and Jon [Donais] started this band 25 years ago and it still amazes me that the music we made allowed us to travel the world, share the stage with legends, and put out a ton of records that I will always be proud of. This show is a way for us to celebrate the music and thank all of the people that supported us through the years and helped us live the dream. I can’t wait to rage through songs from our entire catalog with a bunch of metalhead Massholes maniacs! I’ve said it before and i’ll say it again — there ain’t no party like a Shadows Fall party.”

A trailer for the upcoming live show is streaming here.

Shadows Fall was one of the leaders in the New Wave of American Heavy Metal movement which gained popularity during the early 2000s. The band was founded in 1996. It released its debut album Somber Eyes to the Sky in 1997 through Lifeless Records. Six more albums followed before the group eventually announcing it was “going on hiatus” in 2014.
