Enter Shikari have revealed that they will begin work on their next album towards the end of next year.

The band, who released their third studio album 'A Flash Flood Of Colour' earlier this year, will start on the follow-up after spending the first half of 2013 touring and playing festivals. Speaking to Gigwise, bass player Chris Batten said:

"The first half of the year will be spent finishing up the tour. Half a year's quite a lot touring really. And then for us it takes us about 18 months to do a solid album really because we're lucky enough to go to a lot of places really, so it does take us a fair while. But towards the end, and in the second half of the year we'll be focusing on the next record."

Batten continued: "We won't have anything released next year but we'll definitely have been in the studio."

Earlier this year Enter Shikari's Rou Reynolds labelled US Presidential candidate Mitt Romney as "the most dangerous man in the world." Speaking to NME, the frontman said: "I mean, with the US elections, I can't believe Mitt Romney is a possibility to run a country that size. Or any size."
