Enter Shikari go under the microscope in their latest track from 'The Mindsweep'.

If you need help waking up this morning, Enter Shikari have the cure with this atmospheric banger of a track. 'Never Let Go Of The Microscope' is taken from their fourth studio album 'The Mindsweep', which is due out January 20 via Ambush Reality / PIAS.

About the album, lead singer Rou Reynolds has said: “We pushed ourselves vocally with some of the rawest angriest vocals we've ever done as well as some of the most dulcet and delicate. It's even more diverse than normal as we've built more confidence and fearlessness to widen our influences further. Melody and aggression will always be an important side of what we do, but with this album there was also a concerted effort to concentrate on texture too. Alongside the core of our guitar, bass, drums, electronics set-up, there's so much new instrumentation and orchestration. Writing for and recording woodwind, brass and strings was so rewarding and really felt like it brought a new dimension to the music. Just can't wait to play these songs live now!”
