Enter Shikari’s ‘Anaesthetist’ Is The Pro-NHS Anthem Your Tuesday Needs

Love free healthcare. Love the NHS. Love Enter Shikari.



Speaking of the track, frontman Rou Reynolds has said: "We seem to have reached a stage of such capitalistic fervour, that we believe it acceptable to punish people for ill health. By charging for healthcare we act as if illness is nothing but one’s own problem, but what is the purpose and advantage of 'civilisation' if it is not helping the most vulnerable within society? The lottery of birth can offer us a wealth of bad luck when it comes to our health and the safety nets are being pulled in as the desire to boost profit overtakes the desire to help people."

'Anaesthetist' is taken from Enter Shikari's upcoming fourth album 'The Mindsweep', which is set for release on January 19 through Ambush Reality. The band have one hell of a tour lined up for the next couple of months to support the release, too:
