THE HU - THE GEREG TOUR - CANCELED*
It is with a heavy heart that we bring you this message. As many of you know we left Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia late February to embark on a 7 month tour that was to take us around the World, play our favorite epic festivals with many of our musical heroes and allow us to visit new countries and meet new fans. And further revisit the amazing countries and beloved fans and friends we’ve established in the past year.
Unfortunately, after we embarked on our tour and made it to Malaysia, Indonesia and half of Australia we were forced to halt under the extreme circumstances of border closures and government crowd restrictions as a direct reaction to this horrible C19 virus. These cancellations were put in place to protect us and all of you, our beloved fans. Even though this is a temporary set back all of us must endure, we as The “Hu”mans will persevere through integrity, unity and compassion.
The Hu will be back on tour as soon as the World allows us to. At this point we are cancelled on all shows through March, April and May 2020 until further notice.
In the meantime we’re stranded in Sydney Australia because we can’t return home “Mongolia’s Borders are currently closed” and no flights are available, so we’ve decided to go into a studio here and work on new music and hanging out with the amazing, friendly Aussies. G’day Mate!

The HU is a band from Mongolia that blends hard rock and traditional Mongolian throat singing. Their first two videos (“Yuve Yuve Yu” and “Wolf Totem”) immediately went viral garnering the band over 30 million views. The explosive reaction to The HU resulted in a number of features about the band in global media such as NPR, GQ, The Independent, VICE, ET India Times, Playboy Mexico, Jack Canal+Fr, Hong Kong 01, DW as well as a sold out European Headline tour.
The Hu stands for the Mongolian root word for human being, inspiring their original style of music that they call “Hunnu Rock.” The band pull Inspiration from the Hunnu, an ancient Mongolian empire better known as The Huns in western culture. Their music is deeply embedded with their ancient culture, even integrating old Mongolian war cries and poetry into their lyrics.
The group was founded in 2016 in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia by their producer Dashka, along with band members Gala, Jaya, Temka, and Enkush. Together they create rock music with traditional Mongolian instrumentation such as the Morin Khuur (horsehead fiddle), Tovshuur (Mongolian guitar), Tumur Khuur (jaw harp), guttural throat singing built around the pillars of heavy rock: distorted guitars, bombastic drums, and aggressive rhythms. All four members have earned Bachelor’s or higher degrees in classical music and have gained several years of touring experience throughout Asia and the Pacific Rim. The band’s inaugural performance as The HU was in June 2019 in their hometown, followed by their first headlining European and UK tour this past June and July which sold out. The band also debuted this summer on several major festivals including in Download Festival, Rock Am Park, and more.
Since the formation of the band, they’ve been working on their debut album entitled The Gereg. The word was used as the first diplomatic “password” by the Mongol empire during the time of Genghis Khan. The album contains nine songs including the recently released “Yuve Yuve Yu,” “Wolf Totem”, and “Shoog Shoog” and is slated for a global release on September 13th, 2019 on Eleven Seven Music.
The HU will embark on a world-wide tour in support of their debut album, and one thing’s for certain: this show is not to be missed.
