As part of their buzzed-about North American headlining tour, “The Hun Tour,” globally acclaimed Mongolian rock sensation THE HU roared into NYC for a sold-out show at Irving Plaza (9/18) in front of an audience of devotees including Whoopi Goldberg, actress and co-host of ABC-TV’s long-running hit talk show “The View.” Whoopi also came backstage to hang with the guys and express her deep admiration for them.

Known for their electrifying performances, THE HU will be on the road through October 31 with upcoming sold-out shows in Los Angeles, Seattle, Denver, Minneapolis and Flint (recent gigs in New York, Baltimore and Munhall, PA were sold out). Tickets are going fast for the remaining shows and can be purchased at https://www.thehuofficial.com/tour-1.

Read an exclusive Q&A here with THE HU as they talk about returning to the stage for the first time since the start of the pandemic and their experience dealing with its repercussions from a global standpoint. The band also discusses their excitement on reuniting with Lzzy Hale; being included as part of Metallica’s 30th anniversary reissue project; and the creation of new music.

Founded in 2016 in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, THE HU, comprised of producer Dashka along with members Gala, Jaya, Temka, and Enkush, are a modern rock group rooted in the tradition of their homeland. The band’s name translates to the Mongolian root word for human being, and their unique approach blends instruments like the Morin Khuur (horsehead fiddle), Tovshuur (Mongolian guitar), Tumur Khuur (jaw harp) and throat singing with contemporary sounds, creating a unique sonic profile that they call “Hunnu Rock.”

Their debut album, 2019‘s THE GEREG, was released via BETTER NOISE MUSIC and debuted at #1 on the World Album and Top New Artist charts. With it, the band have accumulated over 250 million combined streams and video views to date and have received critical acclaim from the likes of Billboard, NPR, GQ, The Guardian, The Independent, Revolver, and even Sir Elton John himself.

Proving their global appeal, THE HU have sold out venues across the world in North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia, with scheduled festival appearances at Coachella, Lollapalooza, Download Festival, and more, creating a community of fans from all walks of life. They’ve quickly grabbed the attention of the industry, leading to collaborations with Jacoby Shaddix of Papa Roach and Lzzy Hale of Halestorm. Most recently, the band received praise from fans and critics for their Mongolian rendition of Metallica’s “Sad But True” (as part of Better Noise’s “15 Years of Rock” series), which Metallica themselves acknowledged on their social media accounts and enlisted them to be part of their upcoming Special 30th Anniversary ‘Black Album’ Reissue Covers Project, with a cover of the iconic song “Through The Never.” The band has also explored eclectic ways to reach audiences with their sound, most notably writing and recording music for EA Games’ Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

Readying their next chapter as a global force, THE HU are finishing their highly anticipated sophomore album, which was recorded in their homeland during quarantine. The project is expected to be released in early 2022 via BETTER NOISE MUSIC.

10 QUESTIONS w/THE HU

–What do you think will be going through your minds when the band step onstage September 1 in Lewiston, New York since it will be your first time in front of an audience in a long time due to Covid?

A: We are so excited and we’ll be delighted to be on the stage again. The stage is the place where we live, love and express our messages and feelings. Not being able to perform due to COV-19 reminded us how important this is in our lives.

–What has THE HU missed most about touring?

A: Connecting with our fans through our music is something we missed the most. Of course, there are other parts we missed including having a great time with our entire crew and seeing new places.

–In the months ahead, the band has its North American headlining tour, festival appearances plus shows with Halestorm. THE HU’s collaboration with Lzzy Hale of Halestorm on a new version of “Song of Women” on the deluxe edition of ‘The Gereg’ in 2020 was bold and moving. Can you talk about Lzzy’s contributions vocally and lyrically?

A: Lzzy is an incredibly talented singer, musician and songwriter. She brought a whole other level of dynamics to “Song of Women.” The lyrics that she wrote for this English version are absolutely beautiful and they complement the message of the original version. The first time we heard her vocal recording, it gave us goose bumps. Her sincerity in singing is off the hook.

–On the upcoming tour, THE HU will preview songs from the upcoming album. What can you tell us for now about these new songs and the album?

A: Yes, we will perform several new songs from the upcoming album. We’re highly anticipating sharing these songs because we have worked very hard to make them amazing for our fans. The recording part of the second album is done and now it’s in process of mixing and mastering.

— Does the band have any rituals before hitting the stage?

A: Yes, we do. A few minutes before going on the stage we circle around and chant together just like our ancestors.

 

–Can you talk about the challenge of performing at festivals where audiences are a mix of your fans plus folks who may not have heard of the band?

A: We don’t see it as a challenge but rather an opportunity. We believe in our music and message therein. We welcome new folks to come and listen to our music and hope they leave as new fans of the band.

–How does THE HU stay positive in such a volatile world given the pandemic, wars, polarizing political views, dramatic weather events and more?

A: As human beings, we’re stronger when we’re united together as we face any adversity. We believe that everyone has a warrior in them. Through our music we want to wake up those inner warriors in each of us so that you can face your fears and overcome them. Also believing in a bright future and accepting others regardless of their race, age, and political views make us stay positive.

–As Mongolians, do you feel you may view the world differently than, say, Americans and if so, how?

A: At the end of the day, we all are human being whether you’re from America or Mongolia. We have more things in common than one might think. For example, we grew up in Mongolia listening to American rock bands just like American kids. We love touring here and meeting with our idols, some of whom we have been fortunate enough to collaborate with.

–THE HU ended its last tour in Australia and were in fact stuck there as the country locked down at the start of the pandemic in early 2020. What was that experience like and how did you make the best of it?

A: Because of the COV-19 restrictions, we needed to stay in Sydney, Australia for about two months in early 2020. Of course, we wanted to return to Mongolia and our families, but it was impossible due to border lockdowns. During that time, we worked on our second album recording and making some episodes of “HU’s in the Kitchen?” We love Australia and would love to go back there to perform again.

–Music fans have really embraced THE HU’s cover of Metallica’s “Sad But True” on Better Noise’s “15 Years of Rock” series. And now you’re offering THE HU’s interpretation of Metallica’s “Through The Never” on the upcoming Metallica Special 30th Anniversary ‘Black Album’ Reissue Covers Project. Can you talk about the influence of Metallica on THE HU?

A: Like millions of people around the world, Metallica has been a huge influence and inspiration for us as music fans and musicians. We admire their 40 years of relentless touring and the timeless, unique music they have created. It is a great honor to show them our respect and gratitude by recording our versions of their incredible songs. We are honored and grateful to be included in the Blacklist.

Mongolian Rock Sensation THE HU Announce 2020 U.S. Tour and Festival Dates

 

DT:      FEBRUARY 5, 2020
 
FM:     KELLY WALSH / MITCH SCHNEIDER
 
FOLLOWING THEIR MASSIVE GLOBAL DEBUT IN 2019,
THE HU ANNOUNCES NEW U.S. FESTIVAL AND HEADLINE DATES STARTING APRIL 10TH AT COACHELLA
MONGOLIAN ROCK SENSATION’S CURRENT SINGLE
“YUVE YUVE YU (FEAT. FROM ASHES TO NEW)” IS CURRENTLY
#8 ON THE ACTIVE ROCK CHARTS
 

 

Mongolian rock sensation THE HU–who ended 2019 with a 75% sold-out North American tour in support of their debut album, THE GEREG (Better Noise Music)–has announced a new U.S. headlining tour. Starting on April 10 at Coachella in Indio, CA, the tour will take them through May 24 in Dallas, TX. This will follow the band’s current sold-out European/UK run.

 

 
“We’re so excited by the reaction to our performances and tours everywhere. Our fans are the best and we are humbled by their overwhelming support.   We can’t wait to return to the USA and perform at Coachella and so many other great festivals and venues.” – The Hu
                                       
THE HU’s current single “Yuve Yuve Yu (feat. From Ashes To New)” is currently at #8 and rising on the Active Rock Charts. The success of the single is a ‘win’ for diversity in the Rock genre as a whole, with lyrics primarily in Mongolian.
 
THE HU has been making waves across the globe with many sold-out shows and festival appearances presenting their signature brand of “hunnu rock“–a one-of-a-kind mixture of Western rock music combined with traditional Mongolian instrumentation and throat-singing sung in their native language.
 
The impact they made in 2019 worldwide is also evident in the critical acclaim and year-end best-of lists that THE GEREG appeared on. Loudwire listed THE GEREG among its Top Albums of 2019 and Revolver Magazine included the band’s video for “The Great Chinggis Khaan” among their Top 10 of the year. In the UK THE GEREG placed among Top Albums of 2019 in Classic Rock and Metal Hammer magazines.
 
“With so bracing a combination of sights and sounds, the Hu have been forging a highly improbable connection between the complexities of traditional Mongolian music and the 10-ton force of western metal,” wrote Jim Farber in The Guardian (10/22/19).

Coming off their recent sold-out New York City show (November 17) at Bowery Ballroom on their first-ever headlining North American tour, Mongolian rock sensation THE HU are excited to share a new song “Sugaan Essena.” It’s featured on the new EA video game “Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.” The game hit stores November 15, while “Sugaan Essena” will be released as a digital single later this year. Find out more about the game and order it here: https://www.ea.com/games/starwars/jedi-fallen-order
 
The band will continue their triumphant three-month tour through December 10th when they’ll play a second Los Angeles show at The Fonda Theatre (the first L.A. show this past October at the Teragram Ballroom was a sell-out). So far, the band has sold out 37 North American shows and performed at such festivals as Riot Fest (Chicago), Aftershock Festival (Sacramento) and Las Rageous (Las Vegas).
 
Among the band’s biggest new fans is Sir Elton John. When he recently interviewed the band on his ‘Rocket Hours’ Beats 1 radio show, Elton gave them massive praise by stating: “I’m such a fan of your album [The Gereg], and I want to congratulate you on being one of the freshest most original bands that I’ve heard in many many years.”
 

Formed in 2016 in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, THE HU achieved global recognition with three powerful videos that have amassed over 45 million views to date–“Wolf Totem,” “Yuve Yuve Yu” and The Great Chingiss Khan“–showcasing their one-of-a-kind style of ‘hunnu rock’-a combination of American heavy rock played with traditional Mongolian instrumentation such as the Morin Khuur (horsehead fiddle), Tovshuur (Mongolian guitar), Tumur Khuur (jaw harp) and guttural throat singing in their native language.

Their debut album THE GEREG was released on September 13 via Better Noise Music and landed on several Top Ten charts in the U.S., Canada, UK and Australia, and Top 20 charts in Germany and Sweden.


THE HU have recently made their way onto the Mainstream Active Rock charts-positioned at #22 this week–with the reinvigorated release of their viral track “Yuve Yuve Yu” featuring guest vocals from Danny Case of From Ashes To New.
Listen to a stream here https://thehu.ffm.to/fatn. Further singles with guest vocals will be announced shortly including Lzzy Hale (Halestorm) on “Song of Women.
 
Here’s some critical praise for The HU‘s electrifying performances:
 
 
“The Hu had everyone pumping their fists and chanting “HU! HU! HU! HU! HU!” in between almost every song, and their music – which is not the kind of thing you hear every day in America – was genuinely awesome. Don’t mistake The Hu for a novelty act or anything; they are just a great band in general.”
–Andrew Sacher, Brooklyn Vegan, 9/15/19
 
 
“With so bracing a combination of sights and sounds, the Hu have been forging a highly improbable connection between the complexities of traditional Mongolian music and the 10-ton force of western metal.”
–Jim Farber, The Guardian, 10/22/19
 
 
“The sound is a rumbling, raga-like trance music supplemented by booming tribal beats that veers from a country hoe-down to snippets of Led Zeppelin, Metallica and even the buzzing drone of the Velvet Underground, all delivered in native Mongolian lyrics…The HU pay tribute to their warrior roots on ‘The Great Chinggis Khaan,’ but also demonstrate a more politically correct side with the ‘Song of Women,’ from The Gereg, which is a diplomatic passport used by Mongolian nobles and officials during the 13th century…The tribal stomp cuts through all language and cultural barriers, joining this far-off exotic location and downtown L.A. in a bond of shared humanity, which makes sense because The HU call their music ‘hunnu rock,’ the Mongolian root word for ‘human,’ and a derivation on the ancient Huns.”
–Roy Trakin, Pollstar, 10/15/19

“The Hu had everyone pumping their fists and chanting “HU! HU! HU! HU! HU!” in between almost every song, and their music – which is not the kind of thing you hear every day in America – was genuinely awesome. Don’t mistake The Hu for a novelty act or anything; they are just a great band in general.”
–Andrew Sacher, Brooklyn Vegan, 9/15/19
 
 
“The room was pulsing with an indescribable sonic energy, akin to that of a swaying heartbeat pumping its way through the crowd to the beat of synchronized drum hits and Mongolian fiddles. Song after song, the packed crowd moved at the fingertips of the brotherhood before them. It was a mesmerizing performance.”
–Hunter Walwaski, The Concordian (Montreal), 9/24/19

“[The HU] are not just taking elements from Western music,” observed NPR back in January 2019. “Instead, they’re using some of these elements and making their own authentic music. So it’s not rock music performed by Mongolians. It’s Mongolian rock music.” And now THE HU‘s debut album is garnering critical praise:
 
“The songs on The Gereg range from Western-style rock anthem ‘Shoog Shoog’ to the pastoral tranquility of “Shireg Shireg” to the bold, almost bluesy swagger of ‘Yuve Yuve Yu.'”
–Bryan Reesman, Billboard, 8/23/19
 
“The HU wound up with nine cinematic songs that seamlessly meld their influences, often highlighting the areas where the two overlap… Given the global platform they earned via YouTube, The HU have an entire nation rooting for them with The Gereg.”
— Kelsey Chapstick, Revolver, 8/23/19
 
“…this album is great because the tracks provide a historical glimpse of a country some people may not know about. The Hu is on tour and hopefully, people will learn more about the band while listening to live cultural music.”
–Cait Stoddard, MXDWN, 9/14/19

This past summer, the band traveled to Europe and the UK for a sold-out 15-date tour in addition to performances at several major festivals including Download Festival, Rock im Park, Rock Am Ring, and Tons of Rock. The band were recently heralded as Cultural Envoy of Mongolia by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Mongolia.
 
THE HU will continue thrilling audiences with their one-of-a-kind style of ‘hunnu rock‘-a combination of American heavy rock played with traditional Mongolian instruments and guttural throat singing, as they tour across North America including upcoming festival appearances at Aftershock Festival (Sacramento) and Las Rageous (Las Vegas). So far, the band has generated 16 sold-out shows in North America. Dates can be found in the poster below and remaining tickets are on sale now at www.thehuofficial.com.
 
 
 
ABOUT THE HU:
 
THE HU stands for the Mongolian root word for human being, inspiring their original style of music that they call “Hunnu Rock.” The band pull Inspiration from the Hunnu, an ancient Mongolian empire better known as The Huns in western culture. Their music is deeply embedded with their ancient culture, even integrating old Mongolian war cries and poetry into their lyrics.
 
The group was founded in 2016 in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia by their producer Dashka, along with band members Gala, Jaya, Temka, and Enkush. Together they create rock music with traditional Mongolian instrumentation such as the Morin Khuur (horsehead fiddle), Tovshuur (Mongolian guitar), Tumur Khuur (jaw harp), guttural throat singing built around the pillars of heavy rock: distorted guitars, bombastic drums, and aggressive rhythms. All four members have earned Bachelor’s or higher degrees in classical music and have gained several years of touring experience throughout Asia and the Pacific Rim.

THE HU is:
Gala: Lead Throat Singer and Morin Khuur
Enkush: Lead Morin Khuur and Throat Singer

Things are heating up for THE HU as they prepare to make their way to North America this fall for their first-ever tour of the continent in support of their upcoming debut album, THE GEREG, due September 13 via Eleven Seven Music. The Mongolian phenomenon, who adventurously combine traditional Mongolian instrumentation and throat-singing with modern American heavy rock to create their own style of music they call “hunnu rock,” have announced the Friday, August 23 launch of the third single and music video for the epic track “The Great Chingiss Khan.
 
Following the viral online success of their previous videos for “Wolf Totem” and “Yuve Yuve Yu” in December 2018—which combined have over 40 million views to date–“The Great Chingiss Khan” marks the first official video release from the band in 2019. Filmed at Burkhan Khalduun, the birthplace of Chinggis Khaan, in February of this year in minus 30 degree weather, the cinematic video shares the story of Chinggis Khaan as he is portrayed in Mongolian culture as an inventor and a founding father of the country rather than the worldly view of him as a warrior and conqueror. Watch a message from THE HU along with a teaser of “The Great Chingiss Khaan” in the video below:

ABOUT THE HU:
 
THE HU stands for the Mongolian root word for human being, inspiring their original style of music that they call “Hunnu Rock.” The band pull Inspiration from the Hunnu, an ancient Mongolian empire better known as The Huns in western culture. Their music is deeply embedded with their ancient culture, even integrating old Mongolian war cries and poetry into their lyrics.
 
The group was founded in 2016 in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia by their producer Dashka, along with band members Gala, Jaya, Temka, and Enkush. Together they create rock music with traditional Mongolian instrumentation such as the Morin Khuur (horsehead fiddle), Tovshuur (Mongolian guitar), Tumur Khuur (jaw harp), guttural throat singing built around the pillars of heavy rock: distorted guitars, bombastic drums, and aggressive rhythms. All four members have earned Bachelor’s or higher degrees in classical music and have gained several years of touring experience throughout Asia and the Pacific Rim.

THE HU is:
Gala: Lead Throat Singer and Morin Khuur
Enkush: Lead Morin Khuur and Throat Singer
Jaya: Jaw Harp, Tsuur, Flute, and Throat Singer

Temka: Tovshuur
