Since forming in 2003 at school in their hometown of St Albans, U.K, Enter Shikari has, thus far, released seven full-length studio albums; TAKE TO THE SKIES (2007), COMMON DREADS (2009), A FLASH FLOOD OF COLOUR (2012), THE MINDSWEEP (2015), THE SPARK (2017). NOTHING IS TRUE & EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE (2020), and the latest, A KISS FOR THE WHOLE WORLD which was released Friday 21st April 2023.

All seven albums debuted in the UK Album Chart top 5 “midweeks”, with 2023’s ‘A Kiss For The Whole World’ finally scoring the band their first ever UK Album Chart #1 record. Enter Shikari have been recipients of multiple awards and topped many a magazine reader’s poll, picking up ‘Best Live Band’ gongs like there’s no tomorrow, as well as a plethora of ‘Best UK Artist’ and ‘Best Album’ statuettes, from the likes of Kerrang!, Rock Sound, the Heavy Music Awards and NME.

Summer 2020 saw the band announce a partnership / shirt sponsorship with local football team St Albans City FC. Frontman / songwriter / producer Rou Reynolds has published four books with Faber Music, the most recent (and most ambitious) being a ‘A Treatise On Possibility’ in the summer of 2021. As well as Rou Reynolds authored publications, in October 2022 Faber Music also published ‘Standing Like Statues – The Enter Shikari Biography’ written by Kerrang! Magazine editor Luke Morton.

Enter Shikari have played somewhere in the region of 3000 live shows around the globe, including three headline arena-sized tours in the UK, substantial UK / Europe arena supports in their early career with The Prodigy, Linkin Park and 30 Seconds To Mars, and more big and small festivals worldwide than it would be possible to list. The band’s last full U.K tour (December 2021) sold out across the board, including the band’s fourth headline show at London’s 10,000 capacity Alexandra Palace.

2023 kicked straight off with Enter Shikari releasing the single ‘(pls) set me on fire’ in January, accompanying an announcement of their new album, and what became known as the Residency Tour, which took in five British cities over the course of one week, repeating for three months. In May 2023, Enter Shikari announced UK arena tour dates for 2024, including the band’s first ever Wembley Arena show. In recognition of the grassroots touring scene which birthed the band, the band has pledged £1 from every ticket sale for the tour to be donated to the Music Venue Trust to support grassroots music venues in the UK. The band also announced a short European run, including the largest German and Netherlands shows Enter Shikari has played thus far. The band kicked off festival season for summer 2023 by headlining the UK’s Slam Dunk Festival in Hertfordshire and Leeds.
