Shadows Fall Announce “The War Within” 20th Anniversary Show


Reunited metalcore faction Shadows Fall have announced a 20th anniversary show for their fourth studio album, 2004’s “The War Within“. That concert will be held at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ on March 16th. VIP tickets and and AMEX pre-sale event launched today, November 01st, while the general onsale will launch this Friday, November 03rd at 12:00pm EDT.

Speaking of the show, the band’s vocalist Brian Fair offered:

“20 years… cannot believe it will 20 years since Shadows Fall dropped The War Within on the world. This record changed my entire life and took me around the world. We had been surprised by the success of The Art Of Balance and definitely felt a little pressure to take things to another level, but we did not allow that pressure to change our vision of the band we wanted to be. Our goal was to allow all of our influences shine through while pushing metal into a new direction, creating the music we had always wanted to hear ourselves.

The War Within‘ may be the closest we have come to achieving these goals and that hard work and vision allowed us to get on our first arena tour, our first Grammy nomination, and countless other firsts along the way. Since this is an important birthday for the album, we wanted to play a special set to celebrate ‘The War Within‘ in its entirety, every track, some of which has rarely been played live.

New Jersey has always had some of the craziest crowds we have ever played to so doing this show at The Starland Ballroom seemed like the perfect choice! Dirty Jersey has always felt like a home away from home to us and we have had so many full-on parties on that stage. We cannot wait to party there again! Start stretching now and get ready to come out of mosh retirement so we can give ‘The War Within‘ the birthday rager it deserves. See ya soon!”

Since having returned from dormancy back in 2021, the group have also been working on their first album since 2012.
