Enter Shikari reveal new album details

Enter Shikari

Enter Shikari have announced that they will release their fourth studio, The Mindsweep, on the 19th of January.

Says Shikari frontman Rou Reynolds: “We pushed ourselves with some of the rawest angriest vocals we’ve ever done, as well as some of the most dulcet and delicate. It’s even more diverse than normal – we’ve built more confidence and fearlessness to widen our influences.”

“Melody and aggression will always be an important side of what we do, but there’s also an effort to concentrate on texture too. Alongside the core of guitar, bass, drums and electronics, there’s so much new instrumentation and orchestration.”

“Writing for woodwind, brass and strings was so rewarding; it brought a new dimension to the music. We can’t wait to play these songs live.”

The full tracklist for The Mindsweep is:

Enter-Shikari-The-Mindsweep-Album-Artwork-400x40001. “The Appeal & The Mindsweep I”
02. “The One True Colour”
03. “Anaesthetist”
04. “The Last Garrison”
05. “Never Let Go Of The Microscope”
06. “Myopia”
07. “Torn Apart”
08. “Interlude”
09. “The Bank Of England”
10. “There’s A Price On Your Head”
11. “Dear Future Historians…”
12. “The Appeal & The Mindsweep II”

Enter Shikari will follow up the release with an eight-date UK tour in February 2015. Confirmed dates are:

Feb 16th: Portsmouth Pyramids
Feb 17th: Cardiff Yplas
Feb 18th: Wolverhampton Civic
Feb 20th: Manchester Academy
Feb 21th: Glasgow Barrowland
Feb 22th: Middlesborough Town Hall
