Shihad's fourth album; The General Electric, is getting the vinyl treatment.
Originally released in October 1999, the album peaked at No. 1 on the New Zealand albums chart and has been certified triple platinum.
With some of our top Shihad tracks on the album including ‘My Mind’s Sedate’, ‘The General Electric’ ‘Pacifier’ and ‘Wait And See, we're bloody stoked to hear the album has been newly remastered.
On October 12 it'll be released on vinyl for the very first time, in a special limited edition double 180 gram coloured vinyl, cut at 45RPM.
The Shihad boys formed in 1988 with Jon Toogood, Tom Larkin, Phil Knight and Karl Kippenberger and have since released nine studio albums, won countless awards and accolades, and are known for being one of the greatest live bands to ever come out of Aotearoa New Zealand.
Now, celebrating 30 years of Shihad they're hitting the road.
They posted to their social earlier today (21/08), announcing an upcoming tour with a kick arse video:
"To celebrate 30 years, Shihad will be undertaking national Australian and New Zealand tours (NZ dates announce 23.08.18). and releasing their classic LP The General Electric, on vinyl for the first time since it’s release almost 20years ago."
Keep The Rock locked for more details on the 23rd!
