Statement From Shai Hulud:
“Warmth and gratefulness runs as deeply within Shai Hulud
as cynicism and misanthropy. Since the band’s inception we have been very
fortunate to have had the opportunity to affiliate ourselves with record labels
we not only respect, but whose output helped shape both our band and our
individual lives. This is something we could never take for granted. Having been
respectively welcomed into the Revelation Records and Metal Blade Records
families has been a boon, professionally, and personally, nothing short of a
fanciful dream made real.
Come 2015, this continual windfall of opportunity led us to
work with No Sleep Records, arguably a leading underground label with drive,
heart and ethics. We have respected Chris Hansen and company years before No
Sleep became a staple label who broke some important and game-changing bands. At
risk of repeating a same sentiment, it’s an honor to have been brought into such
a discerning and respectable fold – fully contradicting Groucho Marx’s classic
take on membership.
As a band who came from less than nothing, recognizing we
are not owed anything by anyone, our long and often arduous journey has been
given seemingly inexhaustible secular blessings. It’s with inexpressible
gratitude we announce our collaboration with No Sleep Records on the upcoming
release. It’s the latest in a series of very fortunate events. Now, if we only
had a fraction of such a blessing with tour vehicles, we’d truly be unstoppable.
Excelsiors, one and all.”

1997 debut full-length record, Hearts Once Nourished with Hope and
Compassion, which received critical acclaim and influenced hardcore bands
over the next decade. The band would follow their intrepid release with three
more records, including their most recent, 2013’s Reach Beyond the
