The Herd get set for an action-packed 2012 with the announcement of a cross-country stampede and the release of video for third single, 'A Thousand Lives'!
A Thousand Lives' nostalgic narrative sees The Herd at their story-telling best. The uplifting track is taken from the critically adored fifth album Future Shade. The new video is a 'to camera' piece utilising a projector to juxtapose the members' previous lives.
The video announcement coincides with announcement of the A Thousand Lives Tour, which takes place in March/April 2012 (see below for dates). This tour will bring something a little different to the ever innovative hiphop pioneers, as The Herd weave the stories and context of their 10 year history into each night through a combination of narrative and video.
They will be joined by Thundamentals - fast gaining a reputation for their explosive live shows and party jams which has seen them support the likes of Big Boi & ARIA Award-winning Drapht. The Herd will also be active over summer at Woodford Folk Festival (28th and 29th December) & at the Pyramid Rock Festival (30th December).
"Future Shade is just as operatic as it is opinionated - an accomplished snapshot of social commentary, framed by beautifully complex music" - INPRESS
"A terrific album; the lyrics are insightful, the beats monstrous" - THE BRAG
