Enter Shikari

Enter Shikari are a British four-piece rock and metal band formed in 2003 in St Albans, Hertfordshire. They are well known for their crossover style incorporating post-hardcore and various heavy metal sub-genres, such as metalcore and alternative metal, with elements of various electronic genres, such as industrial, dubstep, trance, and occasionally drum and bass, creating a very distinct sound. The band is named after a boat belonging to Roughton "Rou" Reynolds' uncle, and a character in a play which he wrote before forming the band, both of which are named Shikari.

Enter Shikari were invited to play for BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge. The band played new single 'Torn Apart' and, in Live Lounge tradition, a cover of Muse's 'Supermassive Black Hole'. Watch the full session + interview here and the Muse cover above.
Congratulations to Enter Shikari, who last night pickied up the awards for 'Best British Single' at the Kerrang! awards for their single 'Anaesthetist'. Well deserved! The band have also announced their UK tour for early 2016. See all the dates here.
