Enter Shikari have released an audio stream of their new track titled Supercharge.

Frontman Rou Reynolds, bassist Chris Batten, drummer Rob Rolfe and guitarist Liam Clewlow teamed up with with Big Narstie for the track, after Reynolds and the UK grime MC were introduced by mutual photographer friend Jordan Curtis Hughes.

The track has been launched to coincide with the announcement that Enter Shikari will head out on a European arena tour this winter with Lower Than Atlantis and Astroid Boys. Listen to it below.

Reynolds says: “I started writing a lot of new music at the start of 2016. Supercharge emerged after a pretty vicious cull, and we began getting excited about it as touring started to quiet down later in 2016.

“Through mutual friends here in London we got in touch with Narstie, who came down and hung at the studio in September, nailing his bars like a pro. I’m excited to get the track out into the world now.

“Conversely, I am unable to articulate how excited I am for our next arena tour. We learnt so much last time around and are ready to change the game once more. It’s going to be wicked having Lower Than Atlantis and Astroid Boys along for it, making for a really diverse and exciting evening.”

Supercharge is available to purchase via iTunes.

Enter Shikari are currently on tour across the UK and will headline the Slam Dunk festivals in Birmingham, Leeds and Hatfield this weekend.
