Enter Shikari have announced a show at The Academy on May 23rd, 2017.
The band is celebrating 10 years of their debut album Take To The Skies. The record was recorded when they were in their teens and has gone on to sell 140,000+ copies in the UK alone. They went from having shows in small clubs of the UK to big venues worldwide.
Rou Reynolds, frontman, said, “In 2017, we’re going to be celebrating the 10 year anniversary of our debut album Take To The Skies, which feels totally mental in and of itself.
The fact that we get to reminisce and relive tracks we recorded so long ago, and that are still held dear by so many, is something I could have never anticipated back then and fills me with an appreciation for everyone that has supported this band over the years.
We’ll never write another album like Take To The Skies, as Enter Shikari isn’t really a band that looks backward.
But as this is a special occasion it’s important for us to recognize the importance of this album to us, and for the family of people who has supported us since those early days. On a purely selfish note, I cannot wait to play some of the tracks we haven’t played since 2007, or even ever!”
Early 2017 will see the band work on their fifth album and shows worldwide over the next few months celebrating the 10th anniversary of Take To The Skies.
