Post-hardcore four-piece Enter Shikari announced a partnership with their hometown football club, St Albans FC. The t-shirt collaboration project, as bassist Chris Batten commented, was a way for the quartet to give back to the communities that supported them from their early stages. It’s a great chance to help people who are struggling during these weird times. All sale proceeds will be divided between the St Albans & District Foodbank in Hertfordshire and the Fans Supporting Foodbanks charity in Liverpool. Preorders of the blue/yellow traditional designed piece of clothing (shown in the picture below) are available through here. While supporting the band, you also support lots of people who need it. Beautiful cause, don’t you think?
Banging New Video!
Enter Shikari also pleased their fans lately with a surprise gift. The band recently revisited their track ‘Smiles Do Not Make You Welcome Here’ from their classic 2012 album A Flash Flood Of Colour. They published a new groovy video, tainted with kaleidoscopic psychedelia. Ukrainian visual artist Oleg Rooz helped the band through the production to bring a dark rhythm beast into the light. Lead singer Rou Reynolds said about the clip recorded during the lockdown: “We thought we should check whether we can still perform our songs properly after over a year away from the stage! It was nice to revisit this old track, recording it in front of green screens in our respective front rooms, and then giving the footage to our mate Oleg to create a psychedelic beast of a video for.”
