MADISON, WI – A rock band from Mongolia, The HU, stopped by Full Compass to play a set before continuing their first-ever North American tour. The band played three songs for the Full Compass “Off the Cuff” series, taking advantage of the company’s sound production capabilities.

More details from Full Compass (www.fullcompass.com):

During the stop at Full Compass, The HU played three songs: “Wolf Totem”, “The Triangle”, and “Yuve Yuve Yu”. The set was performed in Full Compass’ world-class studios, mixed on the Yamaha Rivage PM7 mixing console and was shot on two RED Digital Cinema cameras.

Susan Butera, Full Compass VP of Marketing, commented, “We were thrilled to have such a talented and powerful band perform at Full Compass during their first tour on the continent. Their incredible, one-of-a-kind native instruments and unique sound presented an exciting opportunity for our sound and video production experts. The end result was that the band sounded amazing, and it was a wonderful experience for our whole team. We can’t wait to share their Off the Cuff performance!”

The HU’s tour kicked off in Minneapolis on September 11, and the band headlines in Milwaukee at The Rave on September 13. They will continue their extensive coast-to-coast tour across the US through the end of the year and include stops at major cities across the U.S. and Canada. The band will be featured at several major music festivals as part of their fall North American tour, including at Riot Fest (Chicago) on September 14th, and Aftershock (Sacramento) October 13th.

The HU has experienced great success since their 2016 formation. Their first two videos (“Yuve Yuve Yu” and “Wolf Totem”) went viral upon release via YouTube, and garnered the band many millions of views. The band releases their debut album “The Gereg” on September 13 via Eleven Seven Music. The album features nine tracks and showcases the band’s one-of-a-kind style of ‘hunnu rock’- a combination of traditional Mongolian instrumentation & guttural throat singing with Western heavy rock.

The band has experienced great success overseas. Following a sold-out 15-date UK/EU summer tour (including festival appearances at Download, Rock Am Ring & more), The HU were named as Cultural Envoy of Mongolia by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Mongolia and have been featured internationally by outlets including VICE, GQ, NPR, The Independent, Billboard, Playboy Mexico and Economic Times, just to name a few.
