Shai Hulud To Replace Verses on 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."

Still one of the coolest names for a band ever.

In the series "Dune" by Frank Herbert, the sandworms — called Shai-Hulud among the Fremen of the desert planet Arrakis (Dune) — are worshiped as manifestations of "the earth deity of Fremen hearth superstitions." The Fremen believe that the actions of the sandworms are the direct actions of God, and so the worms have been given numerous titles such as the "Great Maker" and the "Worm who is God." Virtually indestructible and with indefinite lifespans of potentially thousands of years, the giant sandworms are also referred to as the "Old Man of the Desert", "Old Father Eternity" and "Grandfather of the Desert".

Yeah, I might be a geek, but a well-read geek nonetheless. Dune was a great series.

Thanks for that valuable piece of information, Necro... haha

New Found Glory have a definite Blink 182 thing going on, and Hardcore surely doesn't come to mind when I heard their sh** in the past!!!

Yeah, NFG is definitely more poppy (pop-core?), but since NFG's singer was once in Shai Hulud, it's not such leap to see them tour together. Besides, I'm sure NFG draws a bigger crowd to get exposed to.
