Enter Shikari announce new album ‘The Mindsweep’

The band's fourth album will be released on January 19, 2015

Enter Shikari have announced details of a new album ‘The Mindsweep’, which will be released on January 19, 2015.

The album was recorded at Chapel Studios in Lincolnshire and produced by Dan Weller, who also worked on the group’s last record, 2012’s ‘A Flash Flood Of Colour’.

The album was also mixed by Jeremy Wheatley (The Vaccines, Dizzee Rascal) in London.


Speaking of the album, singer Rou Reynolds stated: “We pushed ourselves vocally with some of the rawest angriest vocals we’ve ever done as well as some of the most dulcet and delicate. It’s even more diverse than normal as we’ve built more confidence and fearlessness to widen our influences further. Melody and aggression will always be an important side of what we do, but with this album there was also a concerted effort to concentrate on texture too. Alongside the core of our guitar, bass, drums, electronics set-up, there’s so much new instrumentation and orchestration. Writing for and recording woodwind, brass and strings was so rewarding and really felt like it brought a new dimension to the music.”

The tracklisting for ‘The Mindsweep’ is:

‘The Appeal & The Mindsweep I’
‘The One True Colour’
‘The Last Garrison’
‘Never Let Go Of The Microscope’
‘Torn Apart’
‘The Bank Of England’
‘There’s A Price On Your Head
‘Dear Future Historians…’
