Shai Hulud To Tour With New Found Glory

Shai Hulud will be taking the spot of recently disbanded Verses on New Found Glory’s upcoming headlining tour with Bayside and Set Your Goals. For those unaware, Chad Gilbert of New Found Glory is an original member of Hulud... so he may or may not be joining them on stage.

Shai Hulud comments on the arrangements:

"Continuing our mission to relentlessly tour, and damage and drive our bodies and van straight into the ground, we have two months worth of two tours to announce. We'll be out supporting Stick To Your Guns along with In Fear And Faith and Stray From The Path for just about two weeks starting in early March. A righteous run you say? Indeed, but wait there's more. Directly after our stint with the aforementioned, we join up with Set Your Goals and Bayside to assist them in supporting A New Found Glory (minus the "A") as they support their forthcoming album Not Without A Fight. Now that's not something you see every day! For those of you who might not know, New Found Glory and Shai Hulud are more closely related than you might realize: we both started in South Florida back in the 90's together, we always stayed friendly and in touch, and early on even shared a member. As unique as the pairing may seem, it's also a perfect fit - and that's not mentioning NFG's clear and obvious ties to the hardcore scene. Chad Gilbert has an original press of Start Today on vinyl... and you don't. So there. Not so harder-core-than-thou now, eh brown cow?

"We know what you're wondering. The answer is.................. quite possibly. There are no definitive plans for Captain Straight Edge a.k.a. Chadball to hop on the mic and sing a song with us, however, it's certainly not out of the question. We in Shai Hulud would be as pinkly tickled as yourselves to have Chad share the stage with us. As always, the invitation is there. We'll enjoy the moment if and when it arrives. Oh, the torture of uncertainty."

Here are Shai Hulud's latest tour dates: More...

Set Your Goals Rejoined By Ex-Guitarist

Set Your Goals has announced the return of former guitar player Dan Coddaire, who originally left the group in 2006. Here's a statement from the band:

"The time has also officially come to announce the return of 'papa' Daniel Levi Coddaire, now on full-time lead guitar for Set Your Goals in 2008 and beyond! For those unfamiliar, Dan performed with SYG our first two years as a band (2004 - 2006) and we can't say how stoked we are to have him back in action. We want to also extend a huge thank you to our close friend John Strader for all his work filling in with Set Your Goals on this year's Gallows UK tour, the Warped Tour '08, and the upcoming Set Your Goals - Four Year Strong 'Holiday Shows.'"

Set Your Goals Leaves Eulogy Recordings

San Francisco, CA band Set Your Goals is no longer on the Eulogy Recordings roster following a buyout of their recording contract. Interestingly, the buyout (rumored to be over $100,000) didn't come from another label, but rather the group's manager.

Singer Matt Wilson has commented publicly: "The truth is we have many options for our next record and self-releasing is one of the best and a very likely option. This has been discussed within our band and management since the buyout was first brought up. Yes, that's right, our manager is personally offering to buy us out because he has that much faith in our band. There's no promise from a label (though many labels have since caught wind of this and gained interest) and no contract being written up with anyone else waiting to buy us."

Set Your Goals Prepares New DVD

Set Your Goals has issued an update regarding two DVDs projects:

"As most of you know, we had an original DVD edited back in the fall and winter of 2006. This DVD, titled 'Work In Progress,' compiled great documentary style band footage from that entire 2006 year and it was, what we felt to be, a perfect representation of each member of Set Your Goals. But due to a high amount of copyrighted song material we used to edit our footage to, our attorney and label both advised us against releasing the DVD. So ironically enough, 'Work In Progress' is indeed a work-in-progress and has yet to see an official release date. We are still hoping to gain clearance on the music we used in the feature, and hope to get this out in some way still (maybe an online download or stream of sorts) as we are all proud of how it turned out.

"So what about the new SYG DVD? Well, while we are still figuring out how to make 'Work In Progress' viewable to the public, we have been busy compiling footage for a newer, more updated DVD. We have owed our record label, Eulogy Recordings, a DVD for over 2 years now and they are very anxious (as are we) for us to fulfill our DVD agreement and move on to new projects pertaining to SYG. A deadline of April 2008 has been put on this new untitled DVD, and though we are working hard to meet that deadline, we do not want to release any video material prematurely. Even if it does not hit stores by April, we want to promise you all a release by the end of the year.

"We have slowly but surely been going through various film clips we gathered over 2007 to find the best of live songs, interviews, and most importantly, tour shenaniganary! We have been avoiding using any filler or boring video footage just to meet release deadlines. We want to make sure we are giving you all a product you will want to watch time and time again."

Set Your Goals Guitarist Parts With Band

Set Your Goals has officially announced the departure of guitarist Dave Yoha. The group has issued the following statement:

"So the time has finally come to announce Dave's departure from the band. He's expressed to us that the full-time touring lifestyle is no longer right for him, at least not at this point in his life. We support him and there are no hard feelings.

"Dave gave us notice he would be leaving SYG about a month ago but up until now, we had kept things mostly under wraps and only a few close friends of the band were notified of the unfortunate news. We did this because we do not want our inbox, emails, and voicemails flooded with people asking us to try out. We already have some friends in mind who we're going to try out for lead guitarist so please do not contact us asking to try out. I repeat: please do not contact us asking to try out for lead guitar! Our old guitarist Dan (who Dave originally replaced) will be filling in for our Australia/Japan dates, and we already have a friend of the band in mind for the Gallows UK tour in February.

"Tonight (Santa Cruz) and tomorrow (Berkeley) will be Dave's last shows with Set Your Goals, so please come out and show your support for one of the best dudes I know. Statement from Dave coming soon. He will be missed!"
