  ENTER SHIKARI ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM AND TOUR FOR 2012
12th October 2011

enter shikari



Enter Shikari return with their third 'proper' album 'A Flash Flood Of Colour' in January 2012, and continue to defy those who would seek to pigeonhole them by unleashing eleven new tracks that stretch to the furthest extremes of their musical pallet.

Co-produced by the band and Dan Weller (Sikth, Young Guns) in Bang Saray, Thailand and London, UK during May/June 2011, and mixed in Vancouver by Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Aerosmith, Biffy Clyro, Metallica), 'A Flash Flood Of Colour' ventures deeper into the diverse sonic universe that Enter Shikari have created for themselves over the course of previous albums, 2007's 'Take To The Skies' and 2009's 'Common Dreads', and the 1000+ live shows the band have played since forming as schoolboys in 2003.

Taking the seemingly disparate elements of punishing post-hardcore heaviosity, lush ambient soundcapery, ribcage-worrying dubsteppy sub-bass buffoonery and (dare we even whisper it?) pop melody, the band have finally arrived at a sound that can only really be described as 'Enter Shikari'.

'A Flash Flood Of Colour' contains the current single 'Sssnakepit' and current live favourite 'Arguing With Thermometers' (recently debuted for a Radio One session for Zane Lowe) along with nine 100% brand spanking new tracks.

Following the release of the album, and on the back of Enter Shikari's currently ongoing, totally sold out, self-promoted, UK autumn tour (on which they play to 25,000+ fans), the band return to UK stages for a short run of larger shows in support of the album, including a return visit to London's Hammersmith Apollo (where the band played in February 2010 and which was filmed and included in the live CD/DVD package 'Live From Planet Earth').

Special Guests for the dates will be UK rock rising-stars Young Guns who unveil 'Learn My Lesson', the debut single from their highly anticipated second album, on October 17th.

In light of the success of the autumn 2011 tour self-promotion experiment, the same route will be revisited for these March 2012 shows.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
