SHAI HULUD Announce October Tour Dates With Madball, The Overseer

SHAI HULUD will return to the road this Fall for dates 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

Reach Beyond the Sun, the fourth entry in SHAI HULUD‘s storied catalog, 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 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.” Listen now at

“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.” — 5/5,
