Enter Shikari Announce New Album ‘The Mindsweep’ And 2015 European Tour | Music News

 

Genre boundary pushers Enter Shikari have announced their fourth album The Mindsweep’which will be released on January 19, 2015 with a tour also announced in support of their new record. Created with long time collaborator Dan Weller, the album was recorded earlier this summer at Chapel Studios, Lincolnshire, and mixed by Jeremy Wheatley (who has previously worked with Dizzee Rascal and the Vaccines). Having only performed one headline show during 2014, Enter Shikari will take to the road for an extended tour next year, which will take in mainland Europe and finish in the UK during the early months of 2015. Tickets for the tour go on sale later today (October 9), the full track listing for The Mindsweep has also been released, and can be perused below, along with Enter Shikari’s full 2015 tour dates.

 

Lead singer Rou Reynolds had this to say about the new album, “we pushed ourselves vocally 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 as we’ve built more confidence and fearlessness to widen our influences further. Melody and aggression will always be an important side of what we do, but with this album there was also a concerted effort to concentrate on texture too. Alongside the core of our guitar, bass, drums, electronics set-up, there’s so much new instrumentation and orchestration. Writing for and recording woodwind, brass and strings was so rewarding and really felt like it brought a new dimension to the music. Just can’t wait to play these songs live now”.
