SHAI HULUD Announce Tour Dates with MADBALL, THE OVERSEER

Shai Hulud will return to the road this Fall for dates throughout the East Coast. Fans can catch Hulud throughout October on select dates with Madball, The Overseer, Octaves, and Face All Fears. The full list of dates and the lineup for each show can be found below, as well as on facebook.com/shaihuludofficial.


Reach Beyond the Sun, the fourth entry in Shai Hulud’s storied catalog, will see was released in February of 2013. The album was produced by current New Found Glory guitarist, Chad Gilbert, and notably, vocalist on Hulud’s debut LP Hearts Once Nourished With Hope And Compassion. In addition to producing, Gilbert also returned to sing on the album – his first offering of recorded vocals with the band in over a decade. Not unlike Shai Hulud’s previous releases, Reach Beyond the Sun was born of several years of toiling before ever entering a studio. The band’s previous effort, Misanthropy Pure, a polished, metallic and frenzied piece of masterwork, is contrasted by the much more visceral, instinctively compositional songs found on Reach Beyond the Sun, an embracement of the raw Hardcore/Punk elements that sit at the cornerstone of the band’s influences.

Longtime bass player Mad Matt Fletcher asserts, “Anyone who really knows the band will agree this album is our definitive sound, encompassing all of our different influences and styles.”

He conclusively reiterates, “Yep, this sounds like Shai Hulud.”

SHAI HULUD, EARTH CRISIS Announce East/West Tour

After completing an extremely successful tour of Europe in support of Propagandhi, followed by a headlining tour, SHAI HULUD returned to the states and are preparing for their next set of confirmed shows. In July, fans on the east coast will be treated to a handful of shows featuring Earth Crisis as part of their Firestorm 20th Anniversary Tour. Additional support for the east coast portion of the tour from Thy Will Be Done and White Widows. Additional SHAI HULUD shows are confirmed for June, and July, including an appearance at Amnesia Rockfest in Montebello, QC. For the complete listing, see below, or visit facebook.com/shaihulud.

SHAI HULUD’s Matt Fox reflects on 2013:

“2013 has been a banner year for Shai Hulud, and it’s not even summer yet. Seeing the release of Reach Beyond The Sun, touring Australia as a part of the Soundwave Festival (headlined by Metallica – pretty much the reason we play heavy music) and having just returned from Europe after a tour with one of our favorite bands, Propagandhi, has made this year thus far both a blur and a dream, or one and the same depending on how well you remember your dreams, if you can remember them at all. 2013 is one dream we won’t soon forget, etched further into our memory receptors – if there are such things – with the dates we confirmed with Earth Crisis, a huge and direct influence on the formation and existence of Shai Hulud. This is a special year for us, and we’re grateful not only to share it with those who find something in our music that speaks to them, but also with so many of the bands whose music has spoken, and still speaks to us.”

In other news, French metal vocalist Rachel Aspe, known across the internet for her appearance on France’s Got Talent, posted a vocal cover of SHAI HULUD’s Reach Beyond the Sun. Hear it on Aspe’s YouTube channel – youtube.com/rachelaspemetal. Fans can also see Rachel Aspe live as the new vocalist of French Metal band Eths. For more info, visit facebook.com/EthsPage.

SHAI HULUD, THY WILL BE DONE Tour Underway

 

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.

Profoundly hating,”
Shai Hulud

Comments SHAI HULUD’s Matt Fox:

“The opportunity to tour Europe is not something we will ever take for granted. Before our first trip in 1999, the idea of touring another country was something only “real” bands did. We were kids, fanboys ripping off our favorite bands. All we ever wanted to do was try to make someone else feel something resembling what we felt when listening to the bands who inspired us. We never thought our name or music would get out of South Florida. Somehow it made it to Europe, and we graciously followed.

“Since 1999 we have now been to Europe countless times, having played some our most memorable, emotional, and altogether unbelievable shows there, across many different countries. Where we once had what some refer to as “fans,” we now have friends, some so close they are practically family. We cherish the relationships we have made in Europe: personal, musical, lyrical, and in most cases all of the above.

“In 2013 we are returning to Europe with Propagandhi, one of our all time favorite bands. This will be yet another extremely special tour we are fortunate enough to share with our European family. Young and not as young, faces new and familiar, we’re grateful to make new memories and rage with everyone soon!”

Reach Beyond the Sun, the fourth entry in SHAI HULUD’s storied catalog, will see its release in February of 2013.
