The Hu have shared details of the UK/European leg of their ongoing Black Thunder Tour.

Kicking off on November 28 in Manchester Academy, the Mongolian metal band will continue on to Leeds, Nottingham, Cardiff, Birmingham, Dublin, Belfast, and Glasgow, before wrapping up on December 9 in London's Roundhouse.

Last May, The Hu shared their latest single, This Is Mongol, taken from their forthcoming currently untitled second studio album. The project is scheduled for release some time this year via Better Noise Music, and follows their 2019 acclaimed debut The Gereg.

Speaking of the song's accompanying John Connor Hammond-directed video, Hu frontman Jaya said: “We shot in the Mojave Desert, Nevada and the environment reminded us of the Gobi Desert in Mongolia. We enjoyed shooting the video, it happened during our tour and it gave us a little break to reminisce about home."

“Creating this song meant so much to me," adds producer Dasha, "We are announcing our arrival through music and specifically through this song. In these uncertain times, I hope we are bringing positivity, empowerment and strength to fight for better days.”

The Hu are currently in the midst of the US part of their Black Thunder Tour. And in August, they'll be hitting the road with Megadeth, Five Finger Death Punch, and Fire From The Gods for a run of arena shows.

Tickets for the UK and European dates are available on The Hu's website from July 1 at 9am.
