Enter Shikari have announced details of a short, scaled-down winter tour of the UK.

Ahead of the band's main stage appearance at Download festival on Saturday, June 15, the Hertfordshire quartet have unveiled plans to play towns that weren't visited on their six-date arena tour back in February.

“People often travel considerable distances to come to live shows, so we feel it’s important for us to make the effort as well sometimes and play places that your standard tour wouldn’t normally,” vocalist Rou Reynolds explains in a press statement.

“On this run we’ve got some smaller stops that we haven’t played in ages, sandwiched in with cities like Birmingham, Liverpool, and Glasgow, that we didn’t get to visit on our arena tour. As much as we love the bigger rooms it’s going to be killer to play some smaller sweatier places again, and as these will be our last UK shows for quite a while, we couldn’t go into hiding without one last visit to the Barras!”
