Mongolian rock sensation THE HU announce new album

Pioneering Mongolian rock group THE HU have announced details of their long-awaited sophomore album RUMBLE OF THUNDER, recorded through Better Noise Music, and released a new single called “Black Thunder” along with an official music video. The band’s 12-track second studio album is due out September 2 and includes “This Is Mongol,” their eco-conscious single, which was released in May and has now surpassed a million streams in less than two months.

Embodying Mongolian values, Black Thunder tells a powerful lyrical and visual story of struggle, faith and death. The band has released new music from their second album on their headlining Black Thunder Tour, at Coachella and soon Japan’s Fuji Rock Festival, in Australia and New Zealand, touring with Five Finger Death Punch and Megadeth and later in Europe and the UK – a full List of dates below.

This new music was recorded in her native Mongolia after her debut album The Gereg hit #1 on the World Albums and Top New Artists charts in its first week of release.

Singer GALA shared: “’Black Thunder’ is the crown jewel of our second album. The music video is divided into two parts and conveys the basic values ​​of men through images. Our producer Dashka chose a unique location in Mongolia to shoot the video where we had a great time riding the horses in the vast grasslands of our countryside. We hope our pride in our culture shines through as we aim to bring joy and a piece of our culture to viewers through this video.” Referring to their next studio album, he continued, “Our second album will be ‘ Black Thunder’ along with many new songs.

THE HU’s latest official video was shot in the Mojave Desert and emphasized their unique core values ​​of preserving nature and spiritually connecting with the earth. The video for “Black Thunder” also offers an epic setting, this time in Mongolia. Directed by Erdenebileg Ganbold and produced by Dashka, the action-packed video takes viewers through battles and a funeral procession ritual. Check out the official music video HERE.

Earlier this year, THE HU wowed various media outlets with powerful, high-energy performances on their Black Thunder Tour and Coachella, with SF Gate’s Ariana Bindman writing, “The last time I fell in love, it wasn’t with a person. It featured a seven-piece Mongolian heavy metal band belting out throaty war cries while playing Motörhead-style riffs with traditional horsehead fiddles, electric guitars and flutes. Behind me, people of all backgrounds move their heads, raise their fists and shout in unison. I’m checking out THE HU at Coachella, the first music festival I’ve attended since the world changed forever. And they’re bloody epic.”

This summer, THE HU will be taking over stages across North America as they tour with Megadeth, Five Finger Death Punch and Fire From The Gods. The tour begins August 19th in Portland, Oregon, will span over 30 dates and concludes October 15th in Salt Lake City, Utah. The concert-goers are promised an intense, multi-faceted night of heavy rock music. Tickets are now available HERE.

The band have curated five playlists on Spotify, handpicked by Gala, Enkush, Jaya and Temka, featuring tracks from their previous album and upcoming release.
