Shai Hulud set to record with Chad Gilbert

Official press release: Legendary hardcore/metal innovators, Shai Hulud, are preparing to record their fourth album (second for Metal Blade Records) in April 2012. This album will serve as the follow up to 2008's critically acclaimed Misanthropy Pure. Matt Fox, Matt Fletcher and company have completed writing the new album, and have confirmed that they've enlisted the production talents of original Hulud vocalist and current New Found Glory guitarist Chad Gilbert, the vocalist on Shai Hulud's debut full length album "Hearts Once Nourished With Hope And Compassion"! Gilbert's production resume includes work with H20, A Day To Remember, Terror, Trapped Under Ice, Set Your Goals, and more. Chad Gilbert elaborates: "Matt Fox from Shai Hulud hit me up while on tour about potentially producing their new album. I immediately thought it could be an interesting and fun team up but I really wanted to hear new demos before agreeing. He sent me a few new songs and I was pleasantly surprised! The songs were awesome and felt very classic; the melodic hardcore metal they are already admired for but taken to another level. I think with us teamed up we can make the best Shai Hulud record yet!" Matt Fox adds: "It started with this riff. Like a lot of albums do. It's a pretty cool riff, Chad liked it, so I showed him a few more. He seemed to like the others, and had some really cool ideas for them, too. This was a few years ago, and that's when we first entertained the idea working on a record together. "Fast forward to when we are almost ready to book studio time… let's see if Chad remembers any of those riffs. He remembered liking them, and asked to hear more. By this time some of these riffs made it into completed songs. We were pretty happy to hear he liked how everything evolved, and that he'd be interested in working with us on the next Shai Hulud album. "I remember at 14 years old or so I was extremely excited because Wolverine was teaming up with the Punisher in "Punisher: War Journal". I don't know if anything can match that youthful elation, but this is right up there, pretty damn close."

MarginError 4/9/2012 11:26:24 AM

oh, he's just producing, not singing. This isn't newsworthy.

shai hulud rules, chad is a gay. nfg sold out 5 years ago, does noone remember coming home? he is as hardcore as pete wentz.. the fact that he was in hulud back in the day doesnt mean anything... jumping on the b9 bandwagon when record sales got lame to reestablish a fanbase.. such cop out, so lame.. even worse that hes playing with them on the revelation anniversary show.. serious, kill it already

anonymous 4/9/2012 11:47:56 AM

Awesome news. Mike is a better vocalists than Chad anyways. Stoked on this.

anonymous 4/9/2012 11:48:27 AM

and pete wentz namedrop bc supposedly that guy was in his row of SXE and HXC bands back in the day, but im pretty sure that doesnt really make him any cooler, guy is still lame as fck.. the chadball just deadhorses it... like i said, kill it already

withoutashield 4/9/2012 11:53:27 AM

I thought he was singing too, especially after the Rev Anniversary announcement.

anonymous 4/9/2012 11:56:23 AM

so legendary that i've never even heard of 'em

anonymous 4/9/2012 12:00:25 PM

Using Pete Wentz is pretty fcking weak dude, everyone else in FOB has pretty decent hardcore cred except him

"shai hulud rules, chad is a gay. nfg sold out 5 years ago, does noone remember coming home? he is as hardcore as pete wentz"..........what are you, 8? nobody cares but you. pretty sure you cant remember getting fcked by your dad 5 hours ago. NO LUBE, NO SPIT

anonymous 4/9/2012 12:09:22 PM

If you haven't even heard OF Shai Hulud then you need to get the fck off this board.

anonymous 4/9/2012 12:10:16 PM

I like it. Proceed.

anonymous 4/9/2012 12:10:30 PM

I like how Chad "was pleasantly surprised" by the demos. In other words, he expected them to be shit.

littlemac 4/9/2012 12:26:25 PM

the only thing more irrelevant than the "cred" of any member of fall out boy, or the plight of new found glory, is the total fcking nerdosity that is championed every time some jaded fck whines about chad not singing anymore. are you fcking serious? 15 yrs later - it's a classic album, but move the fck on. band has released some excellent material since then and chad's vocals, while good on said album, are not nearly as priceless as you toolbags make them out to be.

anonymous 4/9/2012 12:29:09 PM

Eric Salzer saw Shai Hulud once.

anonymous 4/9/2012 12:41:54 PM

"little mac" you used to be a "fluffer" at from autumn to ashes shows...shut your lame ass mouth up herb, your desire to gain board credit is horrible & atrocious

stevenglasl 4/9/2012 12:54:57 PM

i heard the dude from crandles warning will be doing vocals..

cgrind3000 4/9/2012 1:22:31 PM

"It started out with a riff, how did it end up like this? It was only a riff, it was only a riff..."

StrikeLastFaceFirst 4/9/2012 1:26:14 PM

Eric Salzer could produce a better album.

anonymous 4/9/2012 2:32:50 PM

Pete Wentz is an arrogant rich kid from the burbs of Chicago that had dread locks and played in shitty hardcore bands that spent more time jumping around than actually playing. He couldn't play bass then and still can't play bass today. I almost forgot....Chad needs to let it go and stop playing the VIP hardcore hero. Is anybody listening, does anybody care?

bees 4/9/2012 2:38:39 PM

Mike is a cool dude and I'm hoping he provides solid vocals for the new record.

HBDad 4/9/2012 2:58:32 PM

So his is their vocalist then? This was quite the c-ck-tease!

xheartfeltx 4/9/2012 3:23:56 PM

Matt Fox can do no wrong, coolest dude alive.

anonymous 4/9/2012 3:43:52 PM

what a bunch of fcking dweebs...caring

anonymous 4/9/2012 6:06:30 PM

I read this with Matt Fletcher's voice narrating it.

XBaconXEdgeX 4/9/2012 6:25:57 PM

"anonymous6 hours ago so legendary that i've never even heard of 'em" Joke's on you then, gay. If you've never heard of Shai Hulud, you have no right to be on Lambgoat. GTFO

iwilladapt 4/9/2012 7:16:59 PM

anonymous 4/9/2012 9:27:11 PM

Agreed. This CD will be t-ts. anyone who hates on it should just kill themselves because they are clueless about music, especially given the ignorant statements about pete wentz and chad gilbert.

marching_band_rules 4/9/2012 10:24:58 PM

Lol @ stuffyouwillhate. "Sargent D" doesn't know his head from his ass and that article and subsequent comments proves it.

hardcore is stupid

duckduckfootloose 4/10/2012 9:04:46 AM

Didn't I see you all sucking off Andy Hurley when he was on tour drumming for Earth Crisis with First Blood? Also, Matt Fox is awesome; loved him since Party of Five; LOST wasn't too bad neither.

hatahs 4/10/2012 9:30:15 AM

if i had a time machine and go back to 1997 i would be excited about this. the lyrics i loved as a teen from HONWHAC are downright embarrassing now

anonymous 4/11/2012 6:46:53 PM

YES TEN MILLION CARES EVERYWHERE!@#%? THIS WILL BE THE ALBUM!

anonymous 4/12/2012 9:38:02 AM

I hope all of you gays buy this album and shove it straight up your jerk. fck you.

anonymous 4/13/2012 2:48:27 AM

there's apparently a shortage of shit to get upset about in whatever podunk bullshit midwestern towns you people live in...i have trouble believing any douchebag pseudo-hipsters are legitimately upset about Chad Gilbert producing hardcore records. if you ARE, then might i recommend using the internet for the Other thing it's good for, and go beat off, I think it'll help your overall demeanor immensely...

anonymous 5/12/2012 9:39:28 PM

Mike Moynihan is not doing vocals for the band anymore, he left for his own reasons and has a new band called Hollow Earth. They have not yet decided on a vocalist but are trying out one guy I know who is an absolute beast! (fans of Geert will love him) if he makes it on this album it will absolutely rip for sure! probably will rip regardless, its shai hulud ffs!

anonymous 5/30/2012 12:59:39 AM

Hearts once nourished was the 3rd album I ever heard with screaming lyrics. Shai hulud changed the way I think about life, I dont care if the new vocals are just farts. I'm thankful a new album in on the horizon.
