A couple of weeks back Enter Shikari made an appearance on Sunday Brunch.
Aside from an interview with Rou, the band also played their new song 'Satellites', which was actually the first time it had ever been played live after their album release shows had to be cancelled. The footage is now on YouTube.
Check it out below:
Such a lovely song.
It appears on the band's new album 'Nothing Is True & Everything Is Possible' which is out now via SO Recordings.
The band recently put out an incredible video for opening track 'The Great Unknown':
We spoke to Rou all about the record in the latest issue of Rock Sound.
Here's a little snippet of what he had to say about what influenced the direction of the record:
“Life is incredibly daunting, but at the same time we have the potential to fix all of the global crisis that we’re experiencing. There are all of these mammoth fears, but history shows us that human ingenuity at times of necessity is incredible.”
“I somehow remain optimistic but I’ve never wanted to just put out an optimistic album that’s just hope for hope’s sake.
I want to show realism. I want to show the detail of the fear and the dread that I think we are all feeling. I think that’s really important for Shikari. We should be the ones holding up a mirror and showing off what is actually happening in society."
He later commented on how important it feels to releasing music in a time such as the one we are all living through now...
“I feel like the best analogy is that life is this huge building site.
“It’s noisy and it’s dangerous, and art is the hardhat that we put on. It’s an extra layer of protection and it helps us to understand what’s going on and feel a bit more comfortable in the world. I think that people need music now more than ever and I think the four of us need something to focus on just as much."
