Enter Shikari issue Redshift promo

Enter Shikari have released a promo for their stand-alone single Redshift.

The track – which features a cosmic-themed video – is described by frontman Rou Reynolds as being about “bloody good luck, on the grandest of scales.”

Redshift was produced by Dan Weller, the man behind the desk for the band’s most recent album The Mindsweep, and the video was directed by Mike Tyler who also worked on the promos for Anaesthetist and Torn Apart.

Reynolds says: “Redshift is a song about bloody good luck. On the grandest of scales. Literally. Our universe is expanding faster and faster and a few trillion years from now, everything will have sped away from us so fast that all we would see when looking out from Earth is empty space.

“We would deduce that we were totally alone in the universe. A lost sheep. The last and only biscuit in the tin.”

The single launches ahead of Enter Shikari’s upcoming UK tour, which kicks off in Glasgow in February 18. In March, the band head to Europe for a run of shows.
