After completing an extremely successful tour of Europe supporting Propagandhi, followed by a headlining tour, hardcore legends SHAI HULUD have 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 will be from Thy Will Be Done and White Widows. Additional SHAI HULUD shows have been confirmed for June, and July, including an appearance at Amnesia Rockfest in Montebello, Quebec.

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, has posted a vocal cover of SHAI HULUD’s “Reach Beyond the Sun.” The track can be heard on Aspe’s youtube channel: youtube.com/rachelaspemetal.
