Enter Shikari Announce Dates For U.S. ‘The Mindsweep’ Tour

Enter Shikari are set to release their highly anticipated album The Mindsweep on January 19 via Hopeless Records. So far we have heard singles in “The Last Garrison,” “Never Let Go Of The Microscope,” and the very bizarre “Slipshod,” which was released yesterday. In order to further promote the album’s release in January, the band will commence on a U.S tour in March & April of next year.

The tour will start on March 23 at Fitzgerald’s in Houston, TX and go all the way to April 28, finishing up at Korova in San …

Enter Shikari Premiere “Slipshod”

Enter Shikari are known for pushing the boundaries of their signature post-hardcore/electronic blend with every release, but a bonus track from their forthcoming record has went beyond most listeners’ potential imagination. Entitled “Slipshod,” the cut erratically swings from a screamed Rou Reynolds monologue concerning his poor service at a high-end restaurant over swirling instrumentals into a moombahton-esque breakdown, all the while never losing its gargantuan levels of energy.

Absurd in its own right, this does not even begin to describe the accompanying cartoon visuals portraying a conflict worthy of more than its two-minute runtime. Without further ado, though, follow the …

SINGLE REVIEW: Enter Shikari – “The Last Garrison”

Artist: Enter Shikari
Song: “The Last Garrison
Album: The Mindsweep

By the time Enter Shikari release The Mindsweep in early 2015 nearly three years will have passed since A Flash Flood of Colour arrived in stores.

The records Enter Shikari create are as much about delivering a cohesive listening experience with a clear message as they are keeping listeners on their toes from track …

STREAM: Enter Shikari – “The Last Garrison”

Our friends from across the pond, Enter Shikari, just unleashed the new track “The Last Garrison,” the first single off of their upcoming record, The Mindsweep. The track definitely is in a new distinct musical direction, with a heavier focus on the drum and bass and electronic elements. However, this is still Enter Shikari, so the grand scale and heavy hardcore-influenced sections are alive and well.

The thing I love about Enter Shikari is their ability to really push themselves in a wide variety of directions, exploring what it means to be a band. “The Last Garrison” is …
