The band’s forthcoming seventh album arrives in April

Enter Shikari [Tom Berridge]

Enter Shikari have unleashed a brand new single “(Pls) Set Me On Fire.” The track is the second taste of their forthcoming seventh album A Kiss For the Whole World. The record arrives on April 21 via SO Recordings/Ambush Reality. Stream the new song below now, and check out the album’s cover art and track listing.

Fans can pre-order and pre-save the album now HERE. It will be available in several formats, including colored vinyl, colored cassette, and multiple deluxe boxed sets.

“Honestly, I thought I was fucked,” frontman Rou Reynolds stated. “I’ve never felt so detached from my soul, my purpose, my fucking spirit. I didn’t write music for almost two years. The longest I’d gone before that was two weeks. I was broken. It’s almost as if my brain had asked: “What is the point in music if it cannot be shared? What is the point in writing music if it’s not to be experienced with others?” and then promptly switched itself off. ‘(pls) set me on fire’ grew out of that desperation. This song is a projectile vomit of positive energy. Every emotion trapped inside me for two years, finally set free.”

The band’s new LP follows their 2020 outing Nothing Is True & Everything Is Possible, which hit No. 2 on the UK Albums Chart.

Enter Shikari have also announced a run of intimate album release shows across the UK, Europe and the US, as well as special UK residency shows to take place throughout the Spring. 

“It’s hard to do anything interesting with live shows today,” says Reynolds. “We wanted to do something different. We’re going to become a local band to five major cities in the UK. It’s going to be interesting to see how the shows evolve every time we return.”
