Massachusetts metallers Shadows Fall will be going on hiatus after they conclude whatever touring plans they have lined up in the near future. The band made the announcement via their Facebook page earlier today:

This is a major bummer for me, they were one of my gateway bands that helped me get into the heavy stuff I’m into today. I sincerely hope this doesn’t result in a breakup. They are an underrated band that certainly deserves more credit. I really hope they stop by near me because I’d love to see them one more time before this hiatus takes place.
