Enter Shikari formed as teenagers at school in their hometown of St Albans, UK in 2003. In the intervening years, they have played somewhere in the region of 2000 live shows around the globe, including two area-sized runs in the UK and more big and small festivals than it would be possible to list fully in the time available to us.
Enter Shikari have released five full-length studio albums thus far;
TAKE TO THE SKIES (2007),
COMMON DREADS (2009),
A FLASH FLOOD OF COLOUR (2012),
THE MINDSWEEP (2015)
and THE SPARK (2017)
All five albums landed in the UK Album Chart top 5 for the “midweeks”, with A Flash Flood Of Colour actually mid-week-ing at #1 on release, only to be crushed beneath the wheels of the juggernaut that was ’21’ by Adele come end of that week.
In summer 2018, Enter Shikari announced an extensive UK / Europe / Russia tour for Dec 2018 through to April 2019, which they are midway through at time of writing this.
