Ahead of their unprecedented four sets at Reading & Leeds Festival this coming weekend, ENTER SHIKARI have shared a video to their infectious new track “Stop The Clocks,” released last week to much excitement. “Stop The Clocks” was BBC Radio 1’s ‘Hottest Record’ on the Annie Mac show and the band’s first release through their new deal with So Recordings.
Following Reading & Leeds and one final festival appearance of 2019 at Belgium’s Crammerock Festival, Enter Shikari will head out on their U.S tour which begins on September 20 in Austin, TX and circles eastward.
On their return, the pioneering St. Albans quartet return to the studio to start work on their anticipated sixth album.
Their award winning fifth album The Spark, released in September 2017, was their fourth to land in the UK Album Chart Top 5 and has seen Enter Shikari become one of the UK’s biggest rock exports taking their acclaimed live show to tens of thousands of fans across the world on their longest tour ever.
Renowned Enter Shikari frontman and producer, Rou Reynolds, has become a prominent music voice in mental health awareness working with the Mental Health Foundation amongst others. Reynolds has also written two best-selling books this year Dear Future Historians (Lyrics and Exegesis of Rou Reynolds for the music of Enter Shikari 2006 – 2019) and The Spark, published by Faber.
Enter Shikari is Chris Batten (bass), Rou Reynolds (lead vocals / keyboards), Rob Rolfe (drums), and Rory Clewlow (guitars).
