Are the band taking a dig at Klaxons?
Enter Shikari are set to release their new single ’Johnny Sniper’ next month.
The track will be released on CD, 7-inch picture disc and as a download.
Speaking about what they plan in terms of B-sides, the band jokingly said: “It doesn’t matter does it? Our stock’s so high right now that we can knock out any old piffle and they’ll lap it up. We’ll write it in the studio. Or we’ll get the engineers to do it.”
And, in a possible dig at the news that Klaxons are set to cover Justin Timberlake’s ’My Love’ on next single ’It’s Not Over Yet’, the press release says: “It would probably have been prudent to do a ‘not ironic, honest’ re-imagining of a mainstream pop R&B track as a B-side too.
“Just to try and convince the media that they’re anything other than a bunch of nice middle-class white boys who only listen to music made by other middle-class white boys – but what with the tennis lessons and drinks at the cricket club there just aren’t the hours in the day.”
