Never a band to stick with one sound from album to album, 'Ignite' is no exception - 22 years on, Shihad continue to evolve. Self-recorded and Produced in the band's Melbourne studios, Ignite' is perhaps the cleanest and most immediate sounding record the band has made to date.
New Zealand's premier rock outfit, Shihad present 'Ignite'! Self produced at Shihad's own studios in Melbourne, 'Ignite' is the 8th album in their 22 year career.
Three tracks on the album including second single "Lead or Follow" have been mixed by world class production genius Dave Sardy -- best known for his work with RHCP, Jet, System of a Down, Stone Temple Pilots and Wolfmother.
Lead single "Sleepeater" topped the Rock Airplay charts at #1 in New Zealand for five weeks running and captivated all with it's stunning visual accompaniment.
