Enter Shikari will celebrate the 10th anniversary of their debut album Take To The Skies with a North American tour in spring 2017.

They’ll be joined by Being As An Ocean on the dates. The St Albans outfit will also mark the record’s birthday at their headlining Slam Dunk shows in May next year.

Frontman Rou Reynolds says: “We’re glad we were able to include North America in the plans for the 10th anniversary shows, as we’ve been making the track across the Atlantic regularly since the album’s release, and there’s a lot of people still coming to shows today that have been with us since the very start.”

He adds: “We’ll never write another album like Take To The Skies as Enter Shikari isn’t really a band that looks backwards, but to be celebrating the decade anniversary of our debut album feels insane.

“It’s going to be a celebration of that album rather than being the clichéd ‘play the album front-to-back’.”

Enter Shikari continue work on the follow-up to 2015’s The Mindsweep.
