===Shihad's 30th Anniversary Tour NZ / AU Dates===
[[File:Killjoyremaster.jpeg|300px|right]]
 
"SHIHAD’S KILLJOY TURNS 20 AND SOUNDS BETTER THAN EVER
 
  
Listening to KILLJOY is like getting a big, beautiful punch in the face. It'll give you two black eyes but leave you smiling. It's that good. And now that Shihad's classic second album is turning 20, it's fitting it gets the re-mastered and reissue treatment to make it sound bigger and more imposing than ever. KILLJOY is volatile, catchy, and intense all in one.  
+
Shihad are embarking on a 6 date NZ tour and 6 date AU tour.
  
This storm of sonic power isn't just one of New Zealand's finest rock albums - it's one of the country's best albums full stop.
 
  
If 1993 debut, CHURN, was the sound of Shihad’s roots, then KILLJOY was the blueprint for the band's trademark mix of melodic heaviness, pounding rhythms, and catchy songs that get people singing and chanting along.
+
Fri 19 Oct – The Foundry – Christchurch
  
Released in May 1995, KILLJOY peaked at No.4 on the album charts and went on to gain platinum status and win album of the year at the New Zealand Music Awards in 1996.
+
Sat 20 Oct – Shed 6 – Wellington
  
The album's four singles ‘You Again’, ‘Bitter’, ‘Gimme Gimme’ and ‘Deb's Night Out’ - are among the band's most enduring tracks. Few songs have the chest beating intensity and unbridled power of album opener, ‘You Again’, with its punishing massacre of first up riffs through to its unhinged and fractured ending. And the simmering, dark beauty of ‘Deb's Night Out’ - the band's ode to bizarre and brutal Palmerston North band Skeptics - remains one of Shihad's finest moments.
+
Sun 21 Oct – The Mayfair New Plymouth
  
While CHURN received some overseas recognition, it was KILLJOY that truly launched Shihad onto the international stage when they hit the road with Faith No More on a 38-date tour through Europe. It also led to the band's first tour of the US where they played everything from club dates in Los Angeles and New York through to influential heavy metal convention Foundations Forum alongside Motorhead and Monster Magnet.
+
Thu 25 Oct – Claudelands Arena – Hamilton
  
The 20th birthday reissue of KILLJOY - available on re-mastered Deluxe Vinyl LP, CD, and Digital formats and includes bonus track ‘N.I.L’ - is testament to what a complete album it is from start to finish. Take your pick from the fiery spite of Bitter, the brooding and thunderous ‘For What You Burn’, or the raw slugging ferocity of ‘Silvercup’.
+
Fri 26 Oct – Town Hall – Auckland
  
The thing about KILLJOY is that it sounded exotic, heavy and ahead of its time back in 1995, and now two decades on it sounds even better."

===29 November 2013 - Press Release - Shihad in the studio recording new album with legendary producer Jaz Coleman===
 
 
 
Legacy Award winning Kiwi rock band, Shihad will return to the studio next month to record their new album with Killing Joke front-man and producer, Jaz Coleman.
 
 
The as-yet-untitled album will be the band’s ninth studio album and their second collaboration with Coleman who also produced their 1993 debut, CHURN.
 
 
"It's surreal to come back to working together again after 20 years. Jaz is bringing the magic and it's sounding like the soundtrack to the end of the universe," says Shihad drummer and spokesman, Tom Larkin of the partnership.
 
 
Coincidentally, the new album will also be recorded at Parnell's York Street Studio where CHURN was recorded 20 years ago.
 
 
Jaz Coleman says, "20 years ago, I started York Street and Shihad were the first band to record there (CHURN), now full circle and back again, with a record that is already sounding explosive and we've only just begun pre-production!"
 
 
The album also sees the band continuing their relationship with Warner Music New Zealand.
 
 
Warner Music New Zealand’s General Manager, Phil Howling, says, “I’m very pleased to announce the re-signing of Shihad to the Warner Music NZ Roster. I honestly can’t imagine the label without them. We are also very much looking forward to the new album in 2014. The reuniting of Shihad and Jaz Coleman will be something truly special and we can’t wait for the results!”
 
 
Fans can look forward to a new single from the album early next year, with the album also set for release in 2014.
