Fresh from dominating the main stages at Reading & Leeds festivals over the weekend, Enter Shikari are sharing the video for their latest single, The Void Stares Back feat. Wargasm. The song became the subject of much conversation over the weekend as the band brought Wargasm themselves out on stage with them for a first live airing.
Lead vocalist / producer Rou Reynolds previously described the song as being about “the forward march of social progress” and the stunning official visual for the song is unveiled, directed by Elliot Gonzo.
Enter Shikari are also announcing that they will headline the 2023 edition of Slam Dunk Festival. Reynolds comments on the booking: “I’ve been intoxicated by the idea of headlining Slam Dunk again ever since our Take To The Skies celebration headline set back in 2017. It’s such a great festival, always nails its bills, and has the added bonus that us lads can actually cycle to the Southern date, being that Hatfield is a neighbouring town to us!
In fact, essentially, this will be our biggest “hometown” show ever, now that the festival has grown even more. I cannot wait. In fact, I will not wait. I demand we play this tomorrow!
I think playing outdoors is my favourite thing to do in life. Just being able to look up and see the sky, with the expanse of people underneath it, all sharing the same emotions and experience, it’s just such a raw, beautiful, and reifying thing.
Slam Dunk is a festival I try to attend every year regardless of whether we’re playing it. I love both the sites, and it’s always full of mates and has such a convivial vibe. (That’s my word of the week).
We’re already thinking about stage production ideas, we’re going to do everything we can to make this our biggest show yet.”
Enter Shikari will also return to Australia in November for their national headline tour with special guests Creeper and Windwaker.
