Shihad To Support Black Sabbath On 2013 Australian Tour

We recently announced that Black Sabbath, the band credited with creating heavy metal and one of the most influential bands of all time would be making their highly anticipated return to Australia this April – their first in nearly 40 years.

The tour has now become even bigger with confirmation that Australian -via New Zealand-rock royalty, Shihad will be opening each show for Black Sabbath.

Shihad has chalked up a number of enviable milestones during their 25 years as a band: they have released eight albums – four of which hit #1 in their home country, were inducted in the New Zealand Music Hall of Fame and toured the globe multiple times. The band also recently released a documentary about their metamorphosis as a band, which Tone Deaf gave a great review.

Now Shihad will kick off 2013 with a series of heady achievements, including the recording of their ninth album in Egypt and Spain with producer Jaz Coleman of Killing Joke, playing a number of festivals across Europe and, of course, fulfilling their boyhood ambitions to share stages with Black Sabbath.

While the legendary Black Sabbath need no introduction, it’s worth noting that they’re  currently recording their first new studio album in more than 33 years, helmed by seven-time Grammy winning producer, Rick Rubin. The iconic rockers also announced that they would be reissuing their entire back catalogue on vinyl.

The new album is due for release in April 2013, just in time for their Aussie your dates with Shihad!
