When given the opportunity to have a chat with vocalist Brian Fair, I jumped at it. Having been a big fan of Shadows Fall the last 14 years and following every project since, it was a no brainer.
I happened to catch Shadows Fall live twice in 2012, just before they cut the cord on being a full time thing. As fortunate as it is unfortunate to say that.
