NEVER a band to shy away from a gig, New Zealand rock band Shihad are set to bring the roof down when they perform at the Brewery on New Year's Eve.

The guys will be supported by Hunter bands Hornet and Vallhalla Cog, who are travelling with Shihad, will be the third support band on the night.

The Brewery gig will be the band's only NSW concert outside the Big Day Out. More than 3500 tickets are available for the 6pm-1am concert.

Vallhalla will play inside until 3am.

Shihad have come a long way from their humble beginnings as high school friends who just wanted to play music.

The guys are now of the biggest bands to come out of New Zealand.

With four albums and a stack of touring under their belt, Shihad are certainly no stranger to musical fame and success.

Shihadhave not only toured alongside big name bands such as Faith No More but the guys have deservedly become a major hit in their own right.

The band's first EP release Devolve took them directly to the heights of the Australian Top 20.

The four albums Churn, Killjoy, Shihad and The General Electric firmly cemented their name in the Australian and international music scene.

The General Electric album also attracted mainstream listeners.

But there is more where that come from with the guys expected to release their fifth album in 2002.

The songs from the new album are most likely to be heard at the Big Day Out 2002.

Shihad will be on stage from 11.30pm until 1am.

Tickets to the Brewery concert cost $28 and are on sale at the venue.
