Due to a family bereavement, Shadows Fall have been forced to cancel their forthcoming UK tour. The band were due to support Fear Factory from Thursday and to play headline shows in Wales and Ireland next week. “First off I just want to apologize to everyone that was expecting to see us in the UK. We always have an amazing time whenever we come over and were psyched to be heading back. We never cancel shows unless it is completely unavoidable. Nothing is as important to us as our friends and loved ones. In a time of tragedy you have to be there to support those who are always there for you.” Brian Fair, Shadows Fall Alternative support acts for Fear Factory are currently under consideration. Mnemic will still appear.
