Enter Shikari have revealed their disillusionment at the current US elections, labelling Mitt Romney "dangerous" and Barack Obama a "liar".

Speaking to NME in this week's issue, which is on newsstands now or available digitally, the band say they have become alienated from the Presidential debate as they cannot see anything changing, regardless who gets elected.

Asked who the most dangerous person in the world right now is, Rou Reynolds singled out Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney for the title, saying: "I mean, with the US elections, I can't believe Mitt Romney is a possibility to run a country that size. Or any size. I'm not a supporter of Obama either. I got wrapped up in 'Obama fever' when he got elected and I was like, 'Real change is possible'."He added:

I'm starting to realise that politics just repeats itself. People get elected. They lie. They say they're gonna do this, that they won't do that. One of the big Obama things for me is he was gonna close Guantanamo Bay but he hasn't done anything. And he's increased the foreign wars the US are leading, and introduced drone warfare, which is a new beast terrifying Pakistan. So many civilians killed.
