Enter Shikari launch into orbit in video for The Sights

Enter Shikari

Enter Shikari have released a video for their new track The Sights.

The song features on the UK outfit’s latest album The Spark, which launched back in September via Play It Again Sam/Ambush Reality.

The video sees Rou Reynolds, Chris Batten, Rob Rolfe and Liam Clewlow achieve their dream of being the first band to play on the surface of the moon…almost!

Frontman Reynolds says: “Was told we were going big budget for this one. First band to play in space, they said… it’ll be amazing, they said. Load of shite.”

Director Kristian Young adds: “I had the idea of making Enter Shikari the first band ever to perform in space. We didn’t have enough budget to get them there and back, so just faked the whole thing in a studio in East London. Take that, Kubrick.”

Enter Shikari are about to embark on the UK and European tour, which is set to get under way at Liverpool’s Arena on November 16. Find a full list of their 2017 live dates below.
