Yesterday (9th), we shared a top ten list of what we thought were exceptional albums that were released a decade ago. One of our choices was Shadows Fall’s overall sixth studio effort, Retribution. We mentioned that the band released one more album (2012’s Fire From the Sky) before their unfortunate hiatus in 2015. With that being said, Shadows Fall drummer Jason Bittner responded to our post via Twitter and shared the following reason for their hiatus:
“‘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.”

Fans have responded to Bittner’s statement expressing how they would love to see them return including one fan who stated that he’s ready to jump into his car to see them.
