Note: We began associating news directly with bands in late 2003. Therefore, earlier band news may not be listed on this page.
The Warmth Of Red Blood, the new incarnation of Shai Hulud, have changed plans for their debut release. Originally slated to release a full-length, the band will now put out an EP. The effort will be recorded late this year and will feature three new songs. The EP should hit streets in early-2006, followed by a full-length late next year. Meanwhile, the group are apparently closer to finally finding a singer. For now, they comment, "[You] must be wondering if we found a singer yet. I think we did- even so, [we're] hesitant to divulge anything just yet."
Shai Hulud has announced that their upcoming DVD will be titled Pray Not A Fallen Banner. The effort will feature footage from all stages of the now-defunct band, "from handheld cameras with terrible sound circa 95 to the slick looking and sounding multi-camera footage of 2004 courtesy of our professional friends at 3B Studios." Derek Hess will complete the artwork for the DVD.
Also, producer Zeuss has remastered Shai Hulud's Hearts Once Nourished With Hope and Compassion. According to the band, the record "for the first time sounds like an album someone can be proud of." The album's new artwork and layout are underway, and the album is slated for a late summer or early fall release.
Finally, the updated version of A Profound Hatred Of Man is taking shape and is expected to feature more than just its original tracks. Shai Hulud is working on getting permission from labels to include various tracks that have been used elsewhere throughout the years. "In theory (the album) should have every split, compilation, and tribute track."
In related news, The Warmth Of Red Blood (the new project comprised largely of Shai Hulud members and a yet named vocalist) is continuing work on their demo. After recording the guitars for the songs, the band will add the vocals of two prospective members and make a concrete decision on who will become their singer.
The Shai Hulud camp has provided an extensive update regarding recent developments. To summarize: The Shai Hulud retrospective has now been completed. The CD will consist of the band's original demo with Damien Moyal, Chad Gilbert's first recording with the band, a three-song live set at NYU, in additional to other miscellaneous features. Look for that one to hit streets in February 2005. Meanwhile, the group has been preparing a reissue of their earliest releases. Producer/engineer Zeuss has been remixing material from their "Hearts One Nourished With Hope" release and their "The Fall Of Every Man" split. Essentially, the two aforementioned releases, in addition to the "Profound Hatred Of Man" EP (everything the band released with Crisis Records), will now be repackaged and released with new artwork on one CD through Revelation Records next year.
In related news, the band is also working on a DVD, tentatively entitled "Pray Not A Fallen Banner." Details are sketchy at this point, but here's what the band says about it: "Yes, the DVD. Being worked on. We have a lot of footage to sift through. The DVD will cover the band from top to bottom. Should be neat to hear how badly we played in our formative years, and hilarious to see how little we improved years later."
Moving on... now that Shai Hulud is no longer a band (so to speak), the new project, now called The Warmth Of Red Blood, has been working on new material. Thus far, they have completed three songs, with several more in the works. The group will eventually record a demo to shop to labels, before ultimately releasing a full-length. The outfit still haven't landed upon a new vocalist though. They are seriously considering a few candidates, but are still accepting vocal auditions.
Shai Hulud have now changed their name to The Warmth Of Red Blood. Since finishing their last album, in addition to parting ways with vocalist Geert Van der Velde, Matt Fox and Matt Fletcher have been writing material for their next album. Although they've got a new name, according to the band, "the new music and lyrics are a continuation and progression that still finds Shai Hulud's message, style, and sound intact." Of course they are now in search of a new full-time vocalist. They're looking for candidates who are drug-free, over age 24, and passionate about music.
