The Hu enjoyed their breakout with the 2019 album The Gerag, but they've been steadily working on the follow-up which is expected to arrive this fall. Speaking about what fans can expect from the "Black Thunder" tour, the group offered, "We’re excited to be performing songs from our new album including 'Mother Nature,' 'Tatar Warrior' and 'ShihiHutu.' We have been working hard on our second album and hope to have it ready soon. It will be focused on showing the unique qualities of the Hunnu Rock genre and consists of many new songs that reinforce the different aspects of it. So far we’ve been getting positive response from our fans and we can’t wait to perform all of our new songs for them."
As for the tour moniker, they added, "We originated in Mongolia and through our music we try to make our fans feel the freedom and energy of the spirit of our vast land and high mountains. Likewise, the 'Black Thunder' name is inspired by the unique scenery that can only be seen in Mongolia in which the thunder rumbles right before the rain in the high mountains, the number of clouds in the sky and the force of the lightning are heard, and seen many, many miles away We tried to communicate the energy and feeling you would get experiencing that and hence we named the tour 'Black Thunder.'"
