===21 March 2012 - Shihad's Beautiful Machine Documentary Trailer a Fan's first look===
+
===Shihad's 30th Anniversary Tour NZ / AU Dates===
Well I was lucky enough to get a sneak peak at the 2 minutes and 17 seconds of trailer for the Shihad Documentary A Beautiful Machine. Unfortunately I was never left alone long enough to slip a thumb drive in and grab a copy, so you will just have to wait another week or two and have my description of it to tide you over. Firstly is it what I expected? Well umm I really don't know thinking about it, I never actually had any expectations as I really didn't really know it would be. That said I enjoyed it and it should be a good documentary, assuming it’s not like one of those action movie trailers where all the good bits are actually in the trailer. The trailer felt like a story in its own right, all happened a bit fast to get the whole story, so here hopes that it continues through into the full documentary. From day 1 they wanted a documentary that would have something in it for the hardcore fan base and that they could leave feeling they knew something more or have a new perspective on it all and also create such a movie that you take your Mum along to, as it would have a story that she could connect with even though she has never heard one note of Shihad. Firstly during the trailer I was going ohh haven't heard that before and here hopes that is a longer piece in the movie. To cover off the could I take my Mum along question well looking at the trailer I think I could as there does seem to be an under lying story that takes the band from back in day until now and through all the highs and lows along the way. It is not a live concert video sure there are clips, but if you want to see a Shihad live go along to gig, nothing compares to Shihad live and bouncing around in the mosh pit and getting all the bumps, bruises and cracked ribs. Shihad have opened themselves up during the making of this documentary to let us inside to see what makes them tick and allow us to see the journey thus far of a little band called Shihad.
 
  
And to address the elephant in the room it does appear to cover the "P" word and some stuff that happened on 11/9.
+
Shihad are embarking on a 6 date NZ tour and 6 date AU tour.
  
The random thought for the trailer is: Man they looked young.
 
  
The poster is also in its last stages as well. It for some reason reminds me of the limited edition poster they had at the Aussie Killjoy/TGE gigs. Think it is the silhouettes in front and a mosh pit behind. In the movie poster it is the four of them in silhouette and a city in the background, with an orange gradient. Then all the names and sponsors, the "normal movie poster" stuff, at the bottom.
+
Fri 19 Oct – The Foundry – Christchurch
  
They have had a media screening in Auckland of the whole thing and they have been getting great feedback and that it will have a greater audience than just the fans, so make sure you take along all your family and friends to it, when it comes out in May as part of NZ Music Month.
+

+
Thu 25 Oct – Claudelands Arena – Hamilton
  
The pre release:
+
Fri 26 Oct – Town Hall – Auckland
WITH A CATALOGUE OF SINGLES AND HITS THAT EASILY FILL A DOUBLE CD IT’S NO SURPRISE THEN THAT AS SHIHAD ANNOUNCE A TOUR TO CELEBRATE THE MEANEST, THEY INCLUDE THE NOTATION THAT THERE’LL BE NO SUPPORT; INSTEAD LAYING OUT A 100+ MINUTE SET TO GIVE ENOUGH TIME TO COVER THE BULK OF HITS AND FAVORITES FROM THEIR ENTIRE CATALOGUE.
 
  
The tour set is drafted to present the two dominant personalities of the Shihad live experience.
+
Sat 27 Oct – Brewers Indoor Arena – Mt Maunganui
  
The first half set sees Shihad working at close quarters front of stage in homage to the close proximity, in-your-face intensity, of the rock bars and clubs where their music was informed. This part of the story recreates the unrefined fervor of the countless early career shit-hole gigs that gave potency to the bands live performance, while presenting the raw classics from their debut EP Devolve and their first three albums Churn, Killjoy and the self-titled Shihad.
+
Fri 16 Nov  –  Rosemount Hotel  –  Perth, WA
  
The band’s work ethic and commitment was cast in this gritty reality of hauling gear up and down stairs, in and of venues on a merry go round of one night stands from Tutukaka to Thames, and from Poland to a small town in Texas.
+
Sat 17 Nov  –  Metropolis  –  Fremantel, WA
  
Reflecting the band in transition, a second stanza embraces the big stage era where Shihad grew wings and a swagger and ramped up production. Incendiary live performances followed and nothing short of a legend status bestowed as they strode the many arena stages at home and abroad - the Big Day Out, Rhythm & Vines, Rippon, Rock am Ring, Roskilde etc. Albums from The General Electric, through to Ignite comprise this era and the many live favorites and radio hits within are given a thorough belting by Shihad while fittingly accompanied by aforementioned ramped up production.
+
Sun 18 Nov  –  Fowlers  –  Adelaide, SA
  
SHIHAD - THE MEANEST. A not to be missed, one time only opportunity to see and hear Shihad carve their own way through one of New Zealand’s great Rock n Roll catalogues.
+
Fri 23 Nov  –  The Triffid  –  Brisbane, QLD
  
===15 February 2012 - Latest News===
+
Sat 24 Nov  –  The Metro  –  Sydney, NSW
Well tomorrow morning (15/2) at 9am Shihad will be announcing the details of a Tour starting in April on Shihad.com.
 
  
The Medusa gig this Friday is sold out.
+
Fri 30 Nov  –  170 Russell  –  Melbourne, VIC
  
And finally apparently they will be recording their ninth album in Spain.
 
  
===5 February 2012 - Another Gig===
+
Shihad are also celebrating their release of The General Electric on Vinyl, due out on 12/10/18. Pre-sales available from JB Hi-Fi or Mighty Ape.
Bar Medusa has just said Shihad will be playing there on 17 Feb ([https://www.facebook.com/barmedusa/posts/10150579738565912 https://www.facebook.com/barmedusa/posts/10150579738565912]). That is the day before Homegrown, so given that I am guessing Homegrown is now sold out so thus they can announce the competing warmup gig. Tickets will be on sale on Thu at 9am.

Set just three kilometres from Whitianga town centre, the lush surrounds of Ohuka Farm will again play host to Coromandel Gold, this time over the 30th and 31st of December.

Tiki and The Upbeats - with another homegrown heavyweight still to be announced.
 
 
 
All 12,500 tickets to last year's Coromandel Gold sold out in 36 hours before going on public sale, and this year's storming line-up is sure to deliver a similar result. Throw in more bar and food options plus a new campground equipped with hot showers, flush toilets and plenty of space, and every need will be catered for.
 
 
 
Pre-sale tickets to this year's festival are available from 9am on Thursday July 21st to members registered on the Coro Gold website. If not sold out, any remaining tickets will be available for public sale on Monday July 25th.
