Singer Auditions

Dear Friends,

It’s the heart that pumps the blood, not the face. The heart of Shai Hulud is its content. This remains consistent, rest assured. Faces come and go. Dust off our backs, and onward…

We are indeed searching for a front-person to lead the band on stage. Not only to effectively scream, also to actively feel and channel the various emotions of our words and music through voice, intense physical presence, and visceral interaction during and in-between the songs. Any band truly rooted in Hardcore requires its members to serve as conduits, not just players. We scream rather than sing for this very reason.

If setting your heart and soul to music, creating, extracting, and sharing raw emotion while throwing your body into a crowd of people night after night sounds appealing, we’d like to hear from you.

At the link is a folder containing instrumental versions of the songs “Chorus Of The Dissimilar,” “Misanthropy Pure,” “Set Your Body Ablaze,” and a demo version of “Whether To Cry Or Destroy.” Please download these songs and record your vocals of the original lyrics, also included within, over any number of them. The overall quality of the recording matters less than your vocal clarity, and the accuracy of the rhythms.

The vocal approach we think fits our music perfectly is “come as you are,” simply, natural and angry. Your nationality, gender, and sexual preference are of no consequence to us. We’re much more concerned you chew with your mouth closed, and thrive on working well, creatively, and constructively within a group dynamic. Members age 25 and over are preferable, though exceptions are happily made based on your maturity, ability, and commitment. Additionally, a drug free lifestyle is favored over smoking, drug use, and heavy drinking, though no one will be automatically excluded based on the aforementioned choices. Serious submissions only, please.

Please send all vocal submissions to We’re grateful and excited to be hearing you.

Thank you for your interest in progressing Shai Hulud. All our love and respect.

Onward, upward, always, forever,

Shai Hulud

  5. Hey guys! So excited to try out. I am a big fan and have always been interested in trying out. How long are you holding this audition for? I’m working on my voice again because I’ve been out of the scene for about 3 years and need to polish up and then send you my demo.
    Let me know,

    • Yo brother! We’re holding auditions until we make a decision – no telling when that will be. So, please send us something as soon as you can. Looking forward to hearing you.

  6. Can’t wait to get my tracks over to you guys. I am recording Misanthropy Pure tonight. I’ve been waiting my whole life for a chance to be in something so amazing. I really hope you guys dig my sound.

  7. Hey guys a friend of mine just told me about this I will be sending something out asap. I am in a band now so I will be contacting a friend that recorded my band to have him set up a date to record my vocals. Very excited !!!

  8. Has there been a vocalist added to the line up yet?

    I am a fan of both shai and strongarm. My brother turned me onto both bands before I knew the true nature of the message and the strength that comes with facing the world head on.

    I’d like to record and send them regardless, if only to know that for all the times I have been moved litterally to tears and strengthened from the inside by your creation, you might hear my voice, a gift from one passionate lover of music to another.

    • We have not situated a vocalist yet, friend. We’d love to hear you. Please download the instrumentals, record your voice over them, and send them in as soon as possible! Thanks so much for your kind words. We are looking forward to hearing you.

  9. Hey, i am sorry if you guys don’t want comments like this, but i cant seem to figure out what the tuning is on the 2 songs you have released already. Are you guys still playing D Standard? I just wonder.

  10. Are these tryouts still going on? I would love to give it a go! You guys have gotten me through so many hard times and would love to be a part of such a great band
