Shai Hulud will be reuniting with former vocalist and current New Found Glory member Chad Gilbert for their next full length. The long-running metallic hardcore outfit has enlisted Gilbert to produce their album, which is expected via Metal Blade Records this year. Gilbert was the vocalist for the band for 1997's Hearts Once Nourished With Hope and Compassion and since then he has produced albums from H20, A Day To Remember, Terror, Trapped Under Ice, Set Your Goals, and others.
Gilbert said this:
Matt Fox from Shai Hulud hit me up while on tour about potentially producing their new album. I immediately thought it could be an interesting and fun team up but I really wanted to hear new demos before agreeing. He sent me a few new songs and I was pleasantly surprised! The songs were awesome and felt very classic; the melodic hardcore metal they are already admired for but taken to another level.
The new record will be the first since Misanthropy Pure in 2008.
