“We’re on an independent label, playing music with a very progressive message, so it’s mad that we’re up here in this position."
"Maybe this is just gonna be the album that's full of bangers."
This is a band that just doesn't miss.
"Back to basics. This band - my best friends - bundled into an old farmhouse, miles away from anywhere. Off-grid, and ready to rediscover ourselves."
"Australia was the last tour we did before the pandemic started, so shows have remained fresh in my memory throughout these difficult last few years. When our tours were constantly being cancelled and the band fell dormant, it was that mad run that gave me comfort - knowing that we went out on a high. To now finally have the chance to return and build on what those shows started is exciting me no end.” says Rou Reynolds, Enter Shikari
Picture this: It's 2007, you hear Enter Shikari for the first time. It's a revelation, it changes the way that electronic music and heavy music work together. Flash forward to 2020 and Enter Shikari release one of the best albums of that year in the midst of a pandemic and they can't tour it due to COVID. GUESS WHAT? They're coming and they're bringing UK mates Creeper and Aussie pals Windwaker along. ORRIGHT?
Anthem of a new decade's existential dread.
At least it'll age better than 'Take To The Skies'.
We sat down with Rou Reynolds & Rob Rolfe of Enter Shikari recently in Melbourne, prior to the commencing of their Australian Redshift tour.
Enter Shikari's Rory Clewlow was kind enough to lend us his time to chat about their constant touring, Game Of Thrones, among other things.
Remixes. Remixes never change.
Seriously, no bullshit, this album is so damn good that it could punch a baby in the face and you’d still love it.
We chat with Enter Shikari singer Rou Reynolds about their upcoming album, 'The Mindsweep', plans to return to Australia and Tony Abbott.
A perfect mess of hardcore and electronica, well produced and well executed.
There are few bands that treverse the lines of dance and heavy music as well as Enter Shikari. Since 2003, the band has carved an ever deepening niche in the global music scene, blending post-hardcore with their fond love of UK dubstep and drum and bass over three well-received albums. Bassist and co-vocalist Chris Batten spoke to Kill Your Stereo about their latest album and their upcoming appearance at Soundwave 2012.
The Streets on crack.
Is it dance-able music for rock fans or rock music for fans of dance? Enter Shikari's unique blend of trance and screamo has been making waves in the UK for the last few years and come January, we will bear witness to their storming live shows as part of the Big Day Out. Bass player Chris caught up for a chat...
