About The HU

Founded in 2016 in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, The HUGala, Jaya, Temka, and Enkush – are a modern rock group rooted in the tradition of their homeland. The band’s two most popular videos which helped to kick start their career, ‘Yuve Yuve’ and ‘Wolf Totem’, showcase the unique musical identity of The HU, and were created by the band’s producer Dashka.

The band’s name translates to the Mongolian root word for ‘human being’, and their unique approach blends instruments like the Morin Khuur (horsehead fiddle), Tovshuur (Mongolian guitar), Tumur Khuur (jaw harp) and throat singing with contemporary sounds, creating a unique sonic profile that they call “Hunnu Rock”.

Their debut album, 2019 ‘s The Gereg, debuted at #1 on the World Album and Top New Artist Charts. With it, the band accumulated over 250 million combined streams and video views to date, with the record receiving critical acclaim from the likes of Billboard, NPR, GQ, The Guardian, The Independent, Revolver, and even Sir Elton John himself. Their second album, 2022’s Rumble of Thunder, reached #3 in the UK Rock & Metal Albums Chart, and #4 on the UK Independent Albums Chart.

Proving their global appeal, The HU have sold out venues across the world in North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia, with festival appearances at Coachella, Glastonbury, Lollapalooza, Download Festival, and more, creating a community of fans from all walks of life. They then became the first rock band to be appointed UNESCO Artist for Peace in 2022. Their musical style and ideas immediately resonated with UNESCO’s values and work, resulting in this prestigious accolade – a huge moment for the group, Mongolia, and the rock music genre overall.

They quickly grabbed the attention of the industry, leading to collaborations with Jacoby Shaddix of Papa Roach and Lzzy Hale of Halestorm, as well as touring with Five Finger Death Punch and Megadeth. The band received praise from fans and critics for their Mongolian rendition of Metallica’s ‘Sad But True’, which Metallica picked up on and invited them to record ‘Through The Never’ for their Metallica Blacklist album released in 2021, alongside other high-profile guest artists like Miley Cyrus, Chris Stapleton, Phoebe Bridgers, J Balvin, St. Vincent, and many more. The band have also explored eclectic ways to reach audiences with their sound, most notably writing and recording music for EA Games’ Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

Readying their next chapter as a global force, The HU are putting the finishing touches on their highly anticipated third album – release date and details still to be announced. The HU will tour Europe in September 2024, before supporting Iron Maiden in North America throughout October/November 2024.
