Enter Shikari remix album and tour announced

Enter Shikari have announced the release of a remix album and confirmed a UK tour for February 2016.

The British rockers issue The Mindsweep: Hospitalised on October 30 via Ambush Reality/Play It Again Sam. It’s a collaboration between the band and London-based drum & bass specialist label Hospital Records.

The Mindsweep: Hospitalised sees every track on Enter Shikari’s The Mindsweep – released in January this year - reimagined by artists including Metrik, S.P.Y, Danny Byrd, London Elektricity and Keeno.

Vocalist Rou Reynolds says: “We’ve always been big on our B-sides and remixes, with every album we’ve always tried to get a load of drum & bass remixes done.

“While we were making The Mindsweep we started the idea of having a consolidated collection of just d’n’b tracks. Because The Mindsweep is such a varied album we just thought it’d be quite interesting to see what a drum & bass take on each track would be, and Hospital’s the one label that I personally have been into forever.”

The Mindsweep: Hospitalised will be available on CD, coloured vinyl LP, and download. It’s available for pre-order from today.

Enter Shikari have released a video for Reso’s remix of Anaesthetist. View it below. A seven-date arena tour kicks off in Glasgow on February 18.
