A lot has changed in Aotearoa since 1988, but some things stay the same… Like the presence of SHIHAD, New Zealand’s most treasured heavy rockers. Over the past three decades they’ve released nine studio albums (including five NZ chart-toppers), travelled all over the world with endless tours, sold out headline shows and played with musical heroes like Motorhead, Metallica, Faith No More and AC/DC to name a few.
Now, to celebrate 30 years of Shihad, the band are undertaking a New Zealand national tour – coinciding with the release their classic 1998 album “The General Electric“ on vinyl for the first time. “The General Electric” was the LP that re-established Shihad’s position as sonic giants of the music industry, with hit singles ‘My Mind’s Sedate’, ‘The General Electric’ and ‘Pacifier’.
Once again joining the boys on tour are Auckland’s energetic hard rock band Villainy, representing the new vanguard of Kiwi rock.
And sharing the stage in Maunganui are Aotearoa freak-funk stompers Kora and their infamously electric live show. Comprising literal brothers Fran, Stu and Brad Kora plus spiritual brother Richie Allan, Kora have been finessing their inimitable heavy soul sound over the past 15 years, amassing multiple platinum certifications and #1s along the way.
