Enter Shikari announce live album from huge arena show

‘Live At Alexandra Palace’ is out on splatter-coloured vinyl

Enter Shikari release live album ‘Live At Alexandra Palace’ on November 4.

It was recorded during the band’s show at the London arena in February, and has been edited by guitarist Rory Clewlow and live engineer Tim Morris.

Out on 2CD and splatter-coloured double vinyl as well as download, the album features all 17 songs from the show, apart from ‘Juggernauts’, which failed to record thanks to a technical hitch. It’s the sixth in the band’s ‘Bootleg’ series of live albums.

A statement admitted the concert should have been available on DVD too, but that hitches meant only one song – ‘Redshift’ – successfully managed to be filmed.

The band have been named as special guests for Bring Me The Horizon’s show at London’s O2 Arena on October 31. It’s the first time the bands have played together apart from festivals since a one-off Las Vegas gig in 2010 and the first time in the UK since a gig at Leeds Packhorse in 2005 when both acts were at the start of their career. A statement said: “The combined band members numbered more than the paying audience that night.”

Enter Shikari have European festivals plus a tour of Japan and Australia to complete before the Bring Me The Horizon show. Following that gig, they will concentrate on writing and recording a new album to follow 2015’s ‘The Mindsweep’.
