Australia is set to welcome one of New Zealand’s greatest musical exports, with the news that Shihad is set to visit our shores in celebration of their 30th anniversary.
Jon Toogood, Tom Larkin, Phil Knight, and Karl Kippenberger will take their show on the road throughout November. After nine albums, a handful of name changes, and a collection of awards recognising their ongoing impact, it’s safe to say Shihad certainly have a lot to celebrate after 30 years in the business.
Fans will also have the chance to reminisce on the band’s landmark LP The General Electric as Shihad prepare to release the record on vinyl for the first time since its release 20 years ago. It’s an album that remains at the forefront of the Shihad story, offering hits such as ‘My Mind’s Sedate’, ‘The General Electric’, and ‘Pacifier’.
