Enter Shikari Announce New Album “A Kiss For The Whole World”. Coming 21st April.

Enter Shikari announced news of their highly anticipated album, A Kiss For The Whole World, releasing April 21st via SO Recordings and Ambush Reality. To celebrate the announcement, the band have now shared the albums lead single “(pls) set me on fire.”

The album is now available for pre order, with limited formats of the new album packaged with the Live From Alexandra Palace 3 album & DVD, recorded at Decembers 2021 sold out 10,000 capacity London show.

As the new single demonstrates the next stage in the bands evolution, the first words we heard from Enter Shikari 2.0 don’t come in the form of a question, but instead a command. We may be experiencing a new era for Enter Shikari, but we’ve firmly kept their flair for bold opening gambits.

Talking on the single, frontman Rou Reynolds shared

“Honestly, I thought I was f*. I’ve never felt so detached from my soul, my purpose, my f** spirit. I didn’t write music for almost two years. The longest I’d gone before that was two weeks. I was broken. It’s almost as if my brain had asked: “What is the point in music if it cannot be shared? What is the point in writing music if it’s not to be experienced with others?” and then promptly switched itself off. ‘(pls) set me on fire’ grew out of that desperation. This song is a projectile vomit of positive energy. Every emotion trapped inside me for two years, finally set free.

Alongside a new album and single, the band have also shared news of a special run of UK shows for 2023. Detailing a run of residency through spring, giving fans something new to experience. Explaining the decision, Rou said

“It’s hard to do anything interesting with live shows today. We wanted to do something different. We’re going to become a local band to five major cities in the UK. It’s going to be interesting to see how the shows evolve every time we return.”

Exclusive access to tickets begins 19th Jan for members of the band’s fan club, or anyone pre-ordering the album. General sale begins 26th Jan.
