Shai Hulud recently returned from their performances in Australia as part of the Soundwave Festival, but they got back in the van and headed out on tour in North America with Thy Will Be Done. The tour includes support from up-and-coming acts Altars, and Beyond the Shore. After this tour wraps up on April 7, Shai Hulud will board their flights for Europe for their tour with Propagandhi. Shai Hulud’s entire confirmed list of dates can be found on the TOUR DATES page.
Guitarist and found member Matt Fox reflects on the band’s year thus far:
“2013, what a year… Thus far, we’ve shared new music with our friends and supporters who encourage us and keep us alive. We were fortunate enough to have just returned from the Soundwave festival in Australia where we made new friends, and saw the bands whose albums are the primary reasons we play the music we do (Thank you Master Of Puppets, Reign In Blood, Among The Living, and Blood, Sweat, And No Tears). We soon leave for Europe with Propagandhi, another one of our favorite bands, and what’s more… in just two days we share the stage with some of the best friends we have ever made in our years of touring, Thy Will Be Done. Joining us on this jaunt are our soon to be friends, Altars, and Beyond The Shore. This is a lot of love and appreciation for a band of self-proclaimed pure misanthropists constantly talking about their ‘Profound Hatred Of Man.’ Who knew…
We’re happy to contradict ourselves in this fashion.
Come share the love.
Shai Hulud has always had a reputation for penning thought-provoking and deeply meaningful lyrics. Their latest effort, Reach Beyond the Sun, is no exception. To further communicate the those lyrics, the band has posted a lyric video for one of their favorite tracks, A Human Failing, on metalblade.com/shaihulud.
“It is absolutely remarkable what Shai Hulud have done on Reach Beyond The Sun. Not only have they reaffirmed their place as hardcore royalty, they have released what could arguably be considered the best album of their career and the best album the genre has seen in years” – SputnikMusic.com
“a cathartic, anthemic return to strength and a testament to never forgetting your roots” – Terrorizer Magazine
“there’s no questioning Shai Hulud’s intensity” – Metal Hammer Magazine
“a renewed sense of frantic, guttural aggression – that makes Reach feel fresh in spite of the scene that’s changed so radically around it” – The Onion AV Club
