DIY poster boys, Enter Shikari
toured solidly for 3 years with no press, no agents, no management,
no help whatsoever. The suits didn’t seem that interested but then
again who gives a shit! The punters cared and that was all that mattered
to Enter Shikari and before they knew it they were selling out
shows at the famous London Astoria through word of mouth alone.
The Internet-storming quartet
wed hardcore and punk’s most crowd-rallying elements — intense breakdowns
and gang vocals — to the melodic buildup of that most populist of dance
genres, trance! But no matter how extreme the opposing sounds that Take to the Skies tries to unite, ‘its hooks and choruses are
so strong they almost sound natural.’ – Spin
About to head to Australia
for their first ever tour as part of the 2008 Big Day Out, Enter
Shikari are not only overhauling the band start-up process, but
they’re also paving the way for that long-awaited British hardcore revolution.
Trance. Hardcore. Strange bedfellows yes, but if you think they could
never mix, you’ve yet to hear Enter Shikari. They will also be
performing one off club shows in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.
