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 …

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.…
