(Nashville, Tenn.) June 7, 2011— Four years after the release of their last record, rockers Blindside have partnered with Fair Trade Services/Sony RED to return from hiatus with the release of their sixth album, With Shivering Hearts We Wait and the fans are eager to listen as the record debuted at No.8 on iTunes ® Mainstream Rock Chart. The band, who has appeared on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” collaborated with music icons including Smashing Pumpkins’ leader Billy Corgan and toured extensively world-wide alongside acts such as P.O.D. and Linkin Park, are now wowing critics with their newest project:

“It's a streamlined little monster of a record, not wasting any time to get to the hooks and the introduction of the band's core power: the gripping vocals of frontman Christian Lindskog. The rest of the impassioned pull of Shivering flows out of the driven attack of Lindskog's bandmates.” –Alternative Press

“After a four year break from the scene, Blindside have made what may be the best album of their career, giving us With Shivering Hearts We Wait. Well worth the wait.”-HM Magazine

“Blindside is back and sounding even more hungry than the first go around. With Shivering Hearts We Wait boasts both some of the hard rock act’s most mighty aggression beside some of its greatest accessibility.”-CCM Magazine

“From the album's blistering opener to its electronic filled final cut, With Shivering Hearts We Wait was more than worth the wait. It's an exciting new entry into what hopes to be a long new chapter in the band's career.” –

“The good songs aren’t just good, they’re great. I believe that I speak for everyone when I say, welcome back old friends. We sure have missed you.” -The New Review

The debut single, “Our Love Saves Us” is currently impacting radio stations across the nation, presently at No. 4 on Billboard’s Christian Rock Songs chart. The song marks the first release from With Shivering Hearts We Wait, which was helmed by producer Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, Flyleaf, Skillet) who helped create a bombastic and epic sound that still stays true to the band’s aggressive stylings. The relationship between Benson and the band has been longstanding, with the producer guiding Blindside on two previous efforts: Silence (2002) and About a Burning Fire (2004).

In addition to the new record, Blindside has launched a new website, The site features mini-webisodes, documentary clips, and streaming of the full album. Also, in the upcoming weeks the band will announce details about their headlining USA tour.
