The definitive Enter Shikari album Nothing Is True & Everything Is Possible is set for release on April 17, 2020 through So Recordings. First single “{ The Dreamers Hotel }” premiered as Annie Mac’s “Hottest Record” last night and is available here.

Nothing Is True & Everything Is Possible is produced to dazzling effect by renowned frontman and visionary Rou Reynolds from a band at the peak of their creative output with a unique story, underlining their 13-year succession as a pioneering and uncompromising musical force. This is an album about possibility, the unnerving irony of endless possibility, the band asking themselves what they can achieve as the world questions “What is possible?

Nothing Is True & Everything Is Possible is a lucid soundtrack for a new decade with a poignant social commentary that expertly leads the listener from pure pop to scorching punk-rock fury, through four-to-the-floor beats and beautiful orchestral composition. “Waltzing Off The Face Of The Earth (I. Crescendo)” and “Waltzing Off The Face Of The Earth (II. Plangevole)” draws you into the madness of modern life, “You can’t trust your own eyes, and you only hear lies / Our future’s been denied and there’s nowhere to hide now that nothing is true and everything is possible.” “Elegy For Extinction” is a classical gem recorded in Prague with the City Of Prague Symphony Orchestra and arranged by renowned film and television soundtrack composer George Fenton (Gandhi, Blue Planet, Planet Earth, Groundhog Day, My Name Is Joe), and the first single “{ The Dreamers Hotel },”  a lavishly-produced anthem.

The inspiration for Nothing Is True & Everything Is Possible came while putting together their book Dear Future Historians published by Faber, which charts the lyrical creativity of the band. Reynolds comments:

“Looking at all we had achieved gave us a better sense of perspective and confidence… What are we capable of? What is possible? These questions are part of Shikari’s DNA. But now, we reflect a society where possibility itself has drifted from something of optimistic opportunity to something quite frightening.”
