Enter Shikari are today sharing Bloodshot, the third single to be taken from their highly-anticipated forthcoming album A Kiss For The Whole World, which will be released on 21st April via SO Recordings / Ambush Reality.
Bloodshot follows recent singles (pls) set me on fire and It Hurts, both of which were instantly embraced with open arms by fans old and new, and received their first live outings during the band’s sensational run of sold-out February residency shows in the UK. For Enter Shikari, rejuvenation, resilience and resurrection have been on the agenda as they introduce new music to the world. However, in the arrival of Bloodshot the band have more questions to pose themselves.
Have a listen to Bloodshot HERE.
Lead vocalist and producer Rou Reynolds explains: “Every day, I seem to be asking myself “Is this article biased?”, “is this claim true?”, “Should I be more furious about this issue? Or less furious?”, “Am I being manipulated? Provoked? Radicalised by my own ‘tribe’? Bloodshot is about how hard it is to find truth, and how easy it is to stop thinking for yourself and simply repeat your ‘team’s’ mantras. Everyone’s so fucking angry with everyone else and it’s exhausting. It seems like social media’s main purpose these days is to hypnotise us to hate”.
Enter Shikari are now also one third of the way through their run of very special, intimate, sold out UK / EU & US residency shows. February’s sold-out run saw the band introduce new singles (pls) set me on fire and It Hurts to the live stage, to a rapturous reception, giving fans the rare experience of an up-close-and-personal Enter Shikari show.
These very special residency performances continue through March and April, with Enter Shikari also announcing the addition of Germany’s own Blackout Problems to the sold-out Hamburg, Brussels and Koln intimate album launch shows. A further show has been added in the US too – an all ages matinee at Chain Reaction in Anaheim, CA.
Tickets for additional shows are available here.
Reynolds explains their thinking behind the residency shows: “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.”
