Enter Shikari have uploaded their new visual to accompany the track "Warm Smiles Do Not Make You Welcome Here". The track features on their latest studio release A Flash Flood of Colour which can be picked up over here. The video sees a suit looking to clone Rou and co for his own benefit. See just how that pans out for him at the top.
Enter Shikari have just returned from a solid run of dates in the US and to celebrate have offered fans a live recording of them from a few months back at a tiny show in London. The 5 track EP is up for download on their official site and is simply titled, Live In London NW5. If you've never witnessed Shikari live they are a force to be reckoned with and their on stage energy just transfers to the crowd making for some riot provoking action. See what all the fuss is about with this little cheeky Monday download.
Every bank holiday weekend in August a music festival takes place in Leeds and Reading, both of which have the same line-up playing alternate days and as preciously reported, last night the line-up was finally released. Rumours had been flying around for quite some time about who would be making an appearance and it's always nice when the rumours become a reality. As you can see from the above poster, arena conquerors Foo Fighters will return to their comfortable headline slot with The Black Keys playing before them. The Cure will also make a return to the festival, their first in 30 years! Paramore will play beneath them. Florence & The Machine will also play beneath Kasabian on the 3rd day.
Other artists announced in this first round include Justice, Maccabees and At The Drive in heading up the NME stage with the line-up being filled out by riff mongrels Pulled Apart By Horses who will open up main stage on the Friday at Leeds. Also filling out the bill are Cancer Bats, Crystal Castles, The Cribs, Miike Snow, The Horrors and SBTRKT. The Shins will make their return also! Soak it all in and make the jump to see which bands play which day at the two festivals. See you there!

Well, the wait is over with just 4 days until the album hits the shelves, Enter Shikari have offered up a full album stream for their follow up to 2009's Common Dreads which I used to absolutely love! The new album, A Flash Flood of Colour, is another step forward for them developing their sound further towards dance whilst still keeping it heavy as F is other places. I'm not completely sold on it yet but maybe with a few more listens I will be. For now why not try A Flash Flood of Colour for yourselves below via AP.
The album drops in the UK on the 16th and the 17th in the US.
This morning on Radio One, Zane Lowe premiered a brand new track from Enter Shikari titled "Arguing With Thermometers" which is taken from their upcoming LP, A Flash Flood of Colour. The track is a nice preview of what's to come and has a little bit of everything you've come to expect from the foursome thrown in. Big riffs mixed in with dance and dubstep elements and a little break down too, not to mention some cheekiness from Rou. See what you make of it below and look out for a video which is expected very soon. Peep a still from that above.
Back with a bang it's Enter Shikari with the genre bending style and energetic delivery. New track "Sssnakepit" sees the St Albans boys back up to their old tricks of combining a jungle like intro with rip roaring guitar riffs and harmonic vocals. The results are surprisingly impressive and this is just the tip of the iceberg. Midway through the energy drops for a fat ass breakdown before returning to the upbeat tempo of the verses and chorus. Worth a few minutes of your time for these boys are self made and not just that, they're doing it well. Kudos.
Yesteday evening, Zane Lowe debuted a new track from those St Albans boys Enter Shikari. The track is a little step away from what you might of come to expect from them but the messages in Rou's lyrics are ever present. With the energy and passion these boys give off it's hard not to want to get involved and throw some shapes. I like
The are currently working on new material and you can pick up this new single over on iTunes now. Give it a play up top and pick it up if you like it. These boys made it on their own label through hard work and graft. Worth a few pennies if you like the track, most definately.
Enter Shikari have always been a fun band to witness live with the genre bending noise and danceable beats to boot. Now you can have that all in your very own living room though as today the band has posted up a trailer for their up-coming DVD Live From Planet Earth. You can peep the trailer for yourselves up at the top.
As well as this though the St Alban's boys have planned a rather large European tour too (UK dates are yet to be announced but we will update as soon as they're available). Check out the dates after the jump and if you're a raver prepare to be on your worst behaviour.
