Enter ShikariÂ are today sharingÂ Bloodshot, the third single to be taken from their highly-anticipated forthcoming albumÂ ‘A Kiss For The Whole World’, which will be released on April 21 via SO Recordings / Ambush Reality.
BloodshotÂ follows recent singlesÂ (pls) set me on fireÂ andÂ It Hurts, both of which were instantly embraced with open arms by fans old and new, and received their first live outings during the bandâ€™s sensational run of sold-out February residency shows in the UK. ForÂ Enter Shikari, rejuvenation, resilience and resurrection have been on the agenda as they introduce new music to the world. However, in the arrival ofÂ BloodshotÂ the band have more questions to pose themselves, and us.
Lead vocalist and producer Rou Reynolds explains: â€œEvery day, I seem to be asking myself â€œIs this article biased?â€, â€œis this claim true?â€, â€œShould I be more furious about this issue? Or less furious?â€, â€œAm I being manipulated? Provoked? Radicalised by my own â€˜tribeâ€™?. Bloodshot is about how hard it is to find truth, and how easy it is to stop thinking for yourself and simply repeat your â€˜teamâ€™sâ€™ mantras. Everyoneâ€™s so fucking angry with everyone else and itâ€™s exhausting. It seems like social mediaâ€™s main purpose these days is to hypnotise us to hateâ€.
Limited formats of the new album come packaged with the ‘Live From Alexandra Palace’ 3 album & DVD, recorded live in December 2021 at the bandâ€™s sold out 10,000 capacity London show.
Enter ShikariÂ 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 singlesÂ (pls) set me on fireÂ andÂ It HurtsÂ to the live stage, to a rapturous reception, giving fans the rare experience of an up-close-and-personalÂ Enter ShikariÂ show.
These very special residency performances continue through March and April, withÂ Enter ShikariÂ happy to announce the addition of Germanyâ€™s own Blackout Problems to the long sold-out Hamburg, Brussels and Koln intimate album launch shows.Â A further show has been added in the US too – an all-ages matinee at Chain Reaction in Anaheim, CA.
Reynolds explains their thinking behind the residency shows:Â “Itâ€™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. Itâ€™s going to be interesting to see how the shows evolve every time we return.â€
