Fvey Tour Change Out

Due to unforeseen circumstances Australian hard-rock band Airbourne will no longer perform on the Fvey tour. Both Shihad and Airbourne regret having to make this announcement.
Replacing Airbourne will be those “motherfu(CENSORED)ckers from hell”, Cambridge’s finest, ladies and gentlemen... The Datsuns.

Hot on the back of the release of their sixth and latest album Deep Sleep, The Datsuns recently blazed through a run of tour dates throughout the UK and Europe, and as we speak, are on the eve of an Australian tour. There is no doubt they will be on top form when the tour kicks off in Lower Hutt at Station Village on Saturday, December 27th.

Shihad and The Datsuns last toured together in 2006. It was an explosive affair that resonated around the country. The ante has been raised yet again as these two behemoths of kiwi rock are joined by compadres I Am Giant and Cairo Knife Fight.
This now makes the Fvey tour an all Enzed rock n roll spectacular.
Bring it on!

Defining Shihad live is much like trying to define the All Blacks, Bruce Lee, or tomorrow’s sunrise. Shihad live embodies a commitment, consistency and that unique electricity that makes them... quintessential. Since their beginning, Shihad have crafted a canon of work that is embedded into the nation’s rock psyche.

August 2014 saw the release of the chart topping album FVEY (pronounced Five Eyes), closely followed by a ground breaking live debut of that album to a sold out Horncastle Arena in Christchurch. This summer Shihad lead a juggernaut of the rockingest proportions to the Summer Tours circuit. Expect the rock-u-matic hammer to be fully cocked and ready for action, as Shihad recruit the following brothers in arms to join them:

Cue roll call... Airbourne, I Am Giant, & Cairo Knife Fight will play seven shows through New Zealand. South Islanders should make a date for New Year’s Eve, when Shihad & company hit Christchurch’s Cathedral Square for the loudest end-to-a-year-party the mainland has seen in a millennia.

I Am Giant – based in the UK and fresh from touring the US and Europe their second album Science & Survival has stayed on the NZ charts since its release in July 2014.

Cairo Knife Fight: Two musicians, one massive noise. In anticipation of their debut album dropping in March 2015, the band have lit up airwaves with their first single ‘Rezlord’ and the accompanying NSFW video. A must see live act of power and excitement, Cairo Knife Fight are pushing the limits of what two musicians can do on one stage.
