You heard it right, Hertfordshire's most fabled Electro Post-Hardcore sons have slotted in at #3 on the UK album charts, marking a fourth album to debut in the top 5 and this time it's even more personal.
What with Fall Out Boy and Mark Ronson doing extremely well in the charts with new releases, and the acknowledgement that this feat is another triumph in the continuing mission to slip pigeonhole-avoiding, socially-conscious music into the mainstream, things can only stay on course from hereon in.
We say it's personal, well just look at some of the track names: "Anaesthetist" and "Never Let Go of the Microscope" pointing towards the NHS and the obvious "The Bank of England"; is Enter Shikari possibly Post-Hardcore's answer to The Clash or more aptly the Sex Pistols in terms of attitude?
Whatever attitude the St.Albans crew want to exhibit, it will only shift a gear on tour. But before that Enter Shikari will be embarking on a brace of Instore Signings this week :
12pm – HMV Southampton
5:00pm – HMV Brighton Churchill
12pm – HMV Birmingham Bullring
5:30pm – HMV Manchester
5:30pm – Rise Records, Bristol
And their Europe / UK tour commences in Paris on 2nd February and ends with two SOLD OUT shows at London’s 3000-capacity Camden Roundhouse at the end of the month.
