Shadows Fall, Unearth Supergroup Downpour Crowdsourcing Album


Downpour, featuring Shadows Fall singer Brian Fair and Derek Kerswill (Unearth, Seemless), have launched a PledgeMusic campaign for their debut album.

Kerswill had this to say, "We consciously sat on the record for the last few years due to a lot of scheduling issues and we had all talked about the idea that back then. Everything was about content, and we wanted the days of Soundgarden and Tool-style mystery."

Fair added, "When I was first approached by Derek about getting involved with the Downpour, ?Shadows Fall was starting to come to an end and I wasn't sure I was ready to start working with another band

"When he sent me the instrumental versions of the songs, I knew immediately that I had to get in! The combination of musicianship, unique songwriting style, and a groove that can't be f***ed with just absolutely blew my mind."

Fair continued, "This was not only music I had always wanted to hear - it was music that I thought would allow me to push myself as a vocalist and try totally new things. I tracked some lo-fi, home studio demos and sent them off to the boys, having no idea if they would be feeling what I was laying down but I know I was! Luckily, they got my vision and encouraged me to push it even further." Check out the campaign here.
