Enter Shikari announce North American tour

Enter Shikari have announced a string of 30 shows in the US and Canada this spring.

The St Albans outfit will cross the Pond to promote their most recent album The Mindsweep after they finish touring Europe. Hands Like Houses and The White Noise have been announced as the support acts.

Frontman Rou Reynolds says: “We’re really looking forward to getting back into more intimate venues and once again meeting the people who’ve given us great support in over in the US.

“Being an independent band that don’t exactly play easy listening music and also have rather in depth lyrics, we understand that the people who are fans of our band really get it.

“I feel immediately connected to our fans, on a scale you couldn’t achieve through playing mindlessly catchy soulless music. So even though we have a smaller fanbase in the US, we feel deeply connected to them and the country.”

The band are also set to headline Hevy Fest on August 20 in New Haven, Derbyshire.
