Enter Shikari Announce Intimate US Run In Select Cities

Enter Shikari return to the USA for a selection of intimate shows alongside their already announced sets at Riot Fest, Louder Than Life Festival, and Furnace Fest. Support for all shows (excluding Baton Rouge) will be fellow UK artist Cassyette. Tickets will be available for purchase on Friday, June 16th at 10AM Local HERE.

The dates come off the back of the band\’s first ever UK Album Chart #1 album A Kiss For The Whole World which was released in April 2023 and celebrated with four quickly-sold-out US album release shows (Anaheim, Los Angeles, Chicago and NYC) along with special shows in the UK, Hamburg, Germany and Brussels, Belgium.

Lead vocalist and producer Rou Reynolds says:

\”I love that we’re getting to extend festival season, by heading Stateside for some brilliant festivals in September. Riot Fest, Louder Than Life and Furnace all have incredible bills with many bands we’re delighted to be playing alongside.

Of course we’re tempering these big outdoor sets with a load of small sweaty club shows too, so we get the best of both worlds. Also excited to be bringing along Cassyette for the ride for those, too. Everything I’ve heard from them is ace.”

ENTER SHIKARI have a way with opening statements and as their new album begins with the words “Be embraced, billions” (‘A Kiss for the Whole World x’), we immediately learn plenty about the band\’s ambition for this album to touch people. Its trio of whirlwind single releases to date have reignited dormant sparks \'(pls) set me on fire\’ confronted how we measure self-worth (\’It Hurts\’) and eyed the trappings of cyclical mistakes (‘Bloodshot’). Journeying through the new album, we are met with calls to revel in the power of spontaneity, (‘Leap Into The Lightning’), encouraged to explore (‘Jailbreak’), and – most poignantly – asked to consider the changing nature of identity (‘giant pacific octopus’). A Kiss for the Whole World heralds the band\’s most vibrant, direct and life-affirming album so far.
