Mongolian sensations The Hu have announced an extensive European tour for the summer. The run of 28 shows kicks off at the Nova Rock Festival festival in Nickelsdorf, Austria, on June 7, and concludes at the Malakoff Festival in Nordfjordeid, Norway, on July 22. Tickets are on sale now, full dates below. 

Last month, the band shared the first episodes of their mini-docuseries Citizens of The World, which details the band's formation and rise to success. The second episode was released yesterday (both episodes can be watched below).

Earlier in February the band unveiled a new version of This Is Mongol, one of the standout tracks from their second album Rumble Of Thunder. The song was originally released as the first single from the album in May last year, but the reworked version – This Is Mongol (Warrior Souls) – featured a new vocal, from Alice In Chains singer William DuVall. 

Previously, the band had reworked three tracks from their debut album The Gereg with other musicians: a new version of Wolf Totem featuring Papa Roach's Jacoby Shaddix, a version of Yuve Yuve Yu with guest vocals from Ashes To New singer Danny Case, and a dazzling version of Song Of Women starring Halestorm leader Lzzy Hale
