It's been a fan-favourite for over a year. It's been played 63 times live, and there was even a social media movement to get this track officially released.
Well, today is the day.
Enter Shikari have finally released the studio version of 'Stop The Clocks'!
It's a song that's become a part of Shikari fan folklore - they named an entire tour after a song that had never been formally released, and they played it every single night on that tour. And now, you can listen to it any time you like!
Speaking of 'Stop The Clocks', Enter Shikari frontman Rou Reynolds shared, “2018 was the first full year in Enter Shikari’s professional career in which we didn’t release any new music. We loved how The Spark was connecting with people and wanted to give the album its rightful breathing space. But, not wanting to be dormant, we began a new track towards the end of the year. Anyone who has seen us live recently will have heard 'Stop The Clocks’ - it’s an upbeat post-punk pop track about the joys of human connection. When someone is open and honest about their vulnerabilities, others can connect with them, and then all of us can feel stronger and more comfortable. It conveys the relief, warmth and freeing nature of the normalisation of mental health struggles, following decades of stigmatism. A flickering flame of positivity in these difficult and regressive times”.
