St. Alban’s Enter Shikari have got a bulk of news, regarding the release of their new single, live DVD and an intimate show in London.
Enter Shikari‘s forthcoming single, ‘Quelle Surprise’, is set for a digital release on May 19th as part of an EP, which will also include two remixes of ‘Destabilise’ and a live recording of ‘Hectic’, taken from their Christmas show party in Hertfordshire last year. The single will also be released as a limited edition 2×7″ (one red vinyl, one white vinyl) July 11th.
Also released on July 11th is the band’s long awaited live DVD, ‘Live From Planet Earth’, released as a CD + 2xDVD package consisting of:
CD – ‘Live at Hatfield. Christmas 2010’
DVD 1 – ‘Live at Hatfield. Christmas 2010’ + ‘Live At Camden Underworld. August 2010’.
DVD 2 – ‘Fizzy Water & Spikey Blankets (A Weekend In Russia. May 2010)’ + ‘Live At Hammersmith. February 2010’ + ‘Live At Summersonic, Tokyo. August 2009’.
The standard edition of the release will be available from all good stores and online retailers, and the ‘Live at Hatfield’ audio will also be available as a digital download from all the usual download stores. A very limited edition box-set edition of the release will also be made available to pre-order only from the band’s own webstore. Alongside the standard version of the ‘Live From Planet Earth’ set, this version will also contain a third DVD, which compiles archive footage recorded by the band, crew, family & friends next to professionally shot footage from all over the world. Some of this footage dates back as far as 2005, and includes songs long lost into the mists of time. It will also include ‘Images From Planet Earth’, a 60-page photo scrapbook of shots taken around the world. Backstage, onstage, in the van, drunk, asleep. No corner of the ‘live on the road’ experience has been left untouched. Plus an Enter Shikari laminate that will, over time, occasionally allow special discounts / surprises when presented at the merch desk at shows.
Pre-orders for both the standard edition (from the likes of Play.com/Amazon/HMV.co.uk, etc.) and the limited edition box set (only from the official Enter Shikari webstore) start on Monday 16th May.
The band have also announced a one-off very intimate show at Camden Dingwalls on June 15th. Tickets are available from midday on May 14th, ONLY from www.entershikari.com. The show is strictly 16+, and tickets will be sold on a ‘2 per person only’ basis only. Special guests and other aspects of the show will be announced in due course. This will be the band’s first UK show since Christmas 2010.
