2013 marks ten years of Enter Shikari existing as a band.
Since forming in school back in 2003, Enter Shikari have played well over 1000 live shows and sold out numerous prestigious venues worldwide, such as London Astoria, Brixton Academy, Hammersmith Apollo, New York’s Irving Plaza and LA’s Roxy, and have played more big and small festivals than it would be possible to list fully, but includes the likes of Download, Reading / Leeds, T in the Park, Glastonbury (UK), Rock Am Ring / Rock Im Park, Hurricane / Southside (Germany), Summersonic (Japan), Soundwave, Big Day Out (Australia) and Coachella (USA).
Enter Shikari have released three full length studio albums; Take To The Skies (2007), Common Dreads (2009) and A Flash Flood Of Colour (2012), and have scored three UK Album Chart Top 5 placements (most recently with A Flash Flood Of Colour reaching #1 in the midweek chart before eventually settling at a highly respectable #4 at week’s end).
Enter Shikari have also released a number of collections of remixes / b-sides / live tracks and full length live show albums through their own website, most of which are now long-deleted and fetching daft money on Ebay.
Fiercely independent, Enter Shikari releases appear in UK and Europe courtesy of their own Ambush Reality record label via PIAS Recordings; and via Hopeless Records in USA / Canada, Hostess Entertainment in Japan and Liberator in Australia / NZ. Enter Shikari also took the step of promoting and financing two full UK tours themselves throughout 2011 & 2012.
Enter Shikari twice picked up Kerrang! Magazine’s ‘Best Live Band’ award, and their ‘Spirit Of Independence’ award also; earned an NME award for Musical Innovation; and won AIM’s ‘Best Album of 2012′ for A Flash Flood Of Colour.
2013 begins with Enter Shikari embarking on a headline tour of mainland Europe in January. This is followed by a brief spot of recording, before heading to the USA & Canada for a short headline run. Writing and recording for album #4 will commence for the latter half of the year, interrupted only by intermittent European festival appearances.
