Shihad Old Gods Tour

Come February, one of New Zealand’s top rock bands will share their new music in seven years with live audiences

Shihad fans are in for a treat come February. The popular Kiwi rock band is set to tour a select few New Zealand cities with their new album, Old Gods. Hitting our playlists on 27 August, the new album will be the first new music released by Shihad in seven years.

On the Shed 6 stage, the band will share all-new tracks as well as old favourites from their extensive back catalogue. Old Gods, the tenth studio album released by the band, is being produced by Birds of Tokyo’s Adam Spark and is said to embody anger, highlighting the musician’s distinctive and developing sound. 

Back in 1985, guitarist Toogood and drummer Tom Larkin came together in their secondary school to form the band we now know and love. By mid-1988, the two became four with the addition of a bassist and guitarist. Today the band consists of Larkin, Toogood, Phil Knight and Karl Kippenberger. Over the years the group has played around the world, hit the top charts numerous times, and secured their place as some of the country’s top musos. 

You can get a taste of what’s to come with recently released singles, All You Little Demons and Tear Down Those Names. Tickets are on sale now.
