The new single follows January’s earth-shaking lead single (pls) set me on fire. Check out the video for the first single below:

It brings with it a call to switch up our worldview and reassess the ways in which we judge ourselves – all in a flurry of race-to-the-finish-line intensity. Lead vocalist and producer Rou Reynolds explains:

“It Hurts came to me in a dream. Literally. Melody, chords, and fully-formulated chorus were all part of a dream that, thankfully, remained with me when I woke up. I was hiding under the duvet at 3AM, singing it into my phone, much to the bewilderment of my girlfriend.

Lyrically, It Hurts is about perseverance, and the importance of reframing failure as a fruitful and, in fact, pivotal route to progress. Society teaches us we should avoid and criticise failure, when defeat and honest mistakes can actually present us with insights that light our way forward. In reality, we should be taught that simply totrymakes us more than enough.”

Enter Shikari also announced a run of very special album release shows across Europe and the US, as well as special 2023 UK residency shows to take place through Feb, March and April. 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.”
