The band's drummer misses part of the tour though

Enter Shikari have finished their new album.

Although there is no release date or tracklisting for the album, the band have confirmed the LP’s name – ‘Common Dreads’.

The band, who recently offered a free download of new song ‘Antwerpen’ on Entershikari.com, have also announced their first tour dates of 2009. They will tour the UK and Europe throughout May.

Prior to that, they will play several SXSW shows in Texas – although they won’t be joined by drummer Rob Rolfe, who has been denied a visa for the trip due to a previous arrest. Rolfe will be replaced on the US dates by Fell Silent sticksman Noddy.
