Enter Shikari Hibernating For A “Long Winter”

Enter Shikari have been on the road constantly over the last year or so, and now it looks like they will be taking a break from touring for a period of time. The frontman of the group, Rou Reynolds, has posted a blog post indicating that the band will be hibernating for the winter. Judging from his post, it sounds like the group doesn’t plan on touring again any time soon. The good news though, it sounds like the band will be working on some new music while they are away.

MUSIC VIDEO: Enter Shikari – “Rat Race”

Sometime after Enter Shikari released their third studio album, A Flash Flood of Colour, the band confirmed they would be working on a fourth album sometime in 2013. We haven’t heard much more about a new album from the band since then, but they have been working on putting out some new singles (which may, or may not actually be on a new album). Their latest single, “Rat Race,” now has a music video to go along with it. You can check the video out by taking a look below the jump.

Enter Shikari Release “Radiate” Video

Hot damn. If you need a pick-me-up this morning, then look no further than the video at the end of this post.

UTG favorites Enter Shikari have debuted a new single entitled “Radiate,” which was unveiled accompanied by an official music video. The song continues Enter Shikari’s legacy of pushing the boundaries of rock and electronic without sacrificing the importance of creating music with a message, and though it’s more of the same instead of something completely unheard of, it’s still a thoroughly satisfying addition to the band’s catalog. You can view the video at the end of this post.…

Enter Shikari Frontman Claims Asking Alexandria Have “No Integrity”

2013 is only three weeks old, but I feel like this year is already proving to be one ripe with controversy and open discussion on hot topics throughout the entertainment community. One of the most notable voices so far this year, Enter Shikari frontman Rou Reynolds, recently spoke out against bands who charged for meet and greets and, as you can probably guess, a few bands were put on blast.

It all started when Twitter user @_meg119 tweeted that she hoped Enter Shikari would never charge their fans for “VIP” status at shows. Rou replied to the girl with the …

2013 Download Festival Lineup Announced

UK’s Download Festival looks absolutely insane this year. I’m publicly sobbing that I won’t be there in June. The event takes place from June 14 to June 16; we already knew several acts like Queens of the Stone Age were playing, but this lineup is tough to beat.

The acts? Slipknot, Iron Maiden, Rammstein, Bullet For My Valentine, Queens of the Stone Age, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Enter Shikari, Alice in Chains, Mastodon, Stone Sour, Parkway drive, Five Finger Death Punch, Jimmy Eat World, and so much more. I just can’t believe Jimmy Eat World, Limp Bizkit, …
