ENTER SHIKARI Announces North American Spring Tour!‏

Following a triumphant European tour that saw them hosting their most massive crowds to date, UK rock band ENTER SHIKARI are announcing a Spring Tour to carry some of their adrenaline-drenched shows to North America. “We’re really looking forward to getting back into more intimate venues and once again meeting the people who’ve given us great support in over in the U.S.,” says vocalist Rou Reynolds of the upcoming 30-date tour in support of their latest album The Mindsweep which was released early 2015 (tour dates below). Hands Like Houses and The White Noise will support all the dates.

“Being an independent band that don’t exactly play easy listening music and also have rather in depth lyrics, we understand that the people who are fans of our band REALLY get it,” he explains. “I feel immediately connected to our fans, on a scale you couldn’t achieve through playing mindlessly catchy soulless music. So even though we have a smaller fanbase in the U.S. we feel deeply connected to them and the country.”

Over the weekend, Enter Shikari played the biggest show of their career.  Performing to a crowd of 10,000 at their headlining show at London’s Alexandra Palace.

“The last few weeks have been pretty surreal, embarking on our first headline arena tour here in the UK,” he says. “It enabled us to create a larger show, a bigger spectacle. It enabled us to be so much more creative, be it with the surround sound or with the visuals and lighting. It’s been hugely gratifying to play the shows and hear the wonderful feedback.”

Preparing for their next jaunt to this continent, the outspokenly political Enter Shikari are hoping to balance out the rather absurd political climate with a dose of their own brand of positivity. Reynolds concludes, “With the election on the horizon, it feels that we should also be there at this time to do all we can to help steer the country away from the dark frightening paths that are looming,”
