With Shihad set to celebrate their 20th year together next year, drummer Tom Larkin spoke with Beat magazine about the band’s longevity. “It just adds up, doesn’t it?” Tom remarked. “I guess we had an advantage in that we started in high school; we started young. So it’s kind of easy to go 20 years. Whereas a lot of bands might take five to 10 years to find the band they wanted to be and the sense of identity they need to create something, we’re just a high school band that never stopped. But it’s awesome to have been together for nearly 20 years and be able to play with people that can play as one beast.”
