SHAI HULUD Announces Hope Within Hatred Tour and Working on New Album

Shai Hulud will kick off 2012 with a co-headlining tour alongside A Plea For Purging. Support on the tour comes from Counterparts and Dead Icons. The tour begins on February 23th in Danbury, CT and wraps up March 18th in Evansville, IN. Additionally, Shai Hulud, will be playing four headlining shows in Mexico from March 8th-11th.

Shai Hulud is currently writing the follow-up to their latest album, Misanthropy Pure. The band plans on recording after this tour.

Matt Fox adds, "When I was in high school I proudly wore a Slayer "Hell Awaits" back patch on my patch and pin riddled jean jacket on top of a Who Framed Roger Rabbit t-shirt while skipping classes in Batman Converse high tops. I never gave a fuck about looking cool. In form, when given the opportunity Shai Hulud tours with bands we think we might like to be around. We're happy to be hitting the road with our pals in Counterparts, and soon-to-be pals in A Plea For Purging and Dead Icons. And what's more, I'd probably kill to have that Roger Rabbit shirt again."

"If indeed the moon ends up in the Seventh House, and Jupiter aligns with Mars we should be recording a new album this Spring. We spend a good deal of time working on our songs because we give a shit about music. With more ideas than solos or breakdowns, we mean to make Jello Biafra proud. And hopefully you as well. You'll have to let us know if we did just that. Be of good cheer, excelsiors all around."

Here's what press said about Misanthropy Pure:
"Matt Fox might not be a household name, but his influence on modern metal is irrefutable."

"Misanthropy Pure sees Shai back at their heavy-riffing, temp-shifting best" 4/5 stars, Revolver Magazine

"Misanthropy is one giant, brain-rattling testament to the genre-blurring finesse of bands masterminds Matt Fox (guitar) and Matt Fletcher (bass), who fuse good, old-fashioned circle-pit hardcore with hair-whipping shred-metal, leaving us all the merrier for it." 4/5 stars, Alternative Press

"The complex, string-hopping and mind-bending guitar runs played on "Venomspreader" and "Chorus Of The Dissimilar", hell the entire album, walk that thin line between discombobulating and awe-inspiring."

"Misanthropy Pure is the sound of a band pushing the boundaries of what technical hardcore can be."
