During a the last day of the 2012 New England Metal + Hardcore Festival, we had the chance to speak with Shadows Fall frontman Brian Fair, who was in high spirits on that rainy day in Worcester, Mass.

While Shadows Fall wasn't performing at the festival, as a local resident, Fair was there to take in the music and the madness. The singer talked about being in his homestate and his pride of being a “Masshole,” his thoughts on the band’s new album ‘Fire From the Sky’, their upcoming tour with Fear Factory, as well as working with fellow “Masshole” Adam Dutkiewicz of Killswitch Engage (who produced the new disc).

Fair also shared stories about his dreadlocks and his non-music passions including cooking and skateboarding. Please enjoy our exclusive video interview with Brian Fair of Shadows Fall below:
