Almost three years since A Flash Flood of Colour, Enter Shikari announce a brand new album due out in January of 2015. Titled, The Mindsweep and recorded with Dan Weller (Rise to Remain, Gallows), the album will be released by Hopeless Records here in the United States.
Said vocalist Rou Reynolds on the “diverse” new album:
“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!”
The band noted on their official website that a spring 2015 US tour is coming, too.
