St Alban's Enter Shikari continue to defy those who would seek pigeonhole them by unleashing eleven new tracks on their new album ‘A Flash Flood of Colour’ that stretch to the furtherest extremes of their musical pallet.
Co-produced by the band & Dan Weller (Sikth, Young Guns) in Bang Saray, Thailand, & London, UK, and mixed in Vancouver by Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Aerosmith, Biffy Clyo, Metallica), ‘A Flash Flood of Colour’ ventures deeper into the diverse sonic universe that Enter Shikari have created for themselves over the couse of previous albums, 2007's ‘Take to the Skies’ and 2009's ‘Common Dreads’, and the 1000+ live shows the band have played since forming as schoolboys in 2003.
Taking the seemingly disparate elements of punishing post-hardcore heaviosity, lush ambient soundcapery, ribcage-worrying dubsteppy sub-bass buffoonery and (dare we even whisper it?) pop melody, the band have finally arrived at a sound that can only really be discribed as ‘Enter Shikari’.
‘A Flash Flood of Colour’ contains the current single ‘Sssnakepit’ and current live favourite ‘Arguing with Thermometers’ (recently debuted for a Radio One session for Zane Lowe) along with nine 100% brand spanking new tracks.
