Enter Shikari will release the third of their "three singles for 2013" on Monday 4th November through their own Ambush Reality label, via [PIAS] Recordings.
The release of 'Rat Race' follows previous 2013 singles 'The Paddington Frisk' and 'Radiate' and comes a couple of weeks ahead of the band's biggest London headline show to date.

'Rat Race' was recorded earlier in 2013 with Dan Weller who also co-produced the band's award winning 2012 album ĎA Flash Flood Of Colour'.
Pre-orders for the digital download of 'Rat Race' will be available from Tuesday 22nd October from iTunes and the band's own website.
A download EP will also be available which complies all three singles plus the previously unreleased 'Radiate (Shikari Sound System Remix)' as a bonus track. The EP will also be available as a limited edition (500 copies) 12" coloured vinyl release, available only via the Enter Shikari webstore (pre-orders for the vinyl also starting Tuesday 22nd Oct).
'Rat Race' neatly precedes a short run of shows in mainland Europe, which culminates in the band's final UK show of the year; a headline set at London's 10,000 capacity Alexandra Palace, as part of 2013's Warped Tour UK:
