Drummer Jason Bittner Says Shadows Fall Hung It Up “Because People Stopped Coming To See Us”


If you ever wondered why Shadows Fall have largely been on hiatus since 2015, drummer Jason Bittner has given his blunt assessment via Twitter. Speaking on the matter in reply to a story about the band’s 2009 album “Retribution” turning ten this year and the ‘unfortunate hiatus’ they took, Bittner offered:

““Unfortunate Hiatus” for @shadowsfallband because people stopped coming to see us……that’s the reality- we wore out our welcome it seems – sometimes you need to take a rest”

In the time since they went on hiatus Bittner has joined Flotsam And Jetsam before moving on to Overkill. Lead guitarist Jon Donais joined Anthrax, while rhythm guitarist/vocalist Matt Bachand joined Act Of Defiance. Meanwhile, vocalist Brian Fair can be found fronting Downpour and Hell Night.
