Having closed the chapter of 10th anniversary celebrations for their debut ‘Take To The Skies’ a few weeks back now, Enter Shikari have now announced details of the next step in their career with news of their fifth full-length offering. The band’s new studio album, ‘The Spark’, is scheduled to see a release on September 22nd 2017 via their own label, Ambush Reality.
Speaking further on the record, frontman Rou Reynolds explains, “The spark is a new connection, a new beginning. It can be short and insignificant, but it can create something so significant. The spark is that light at the end of the tunnel—when everything seems to be falling apart, but you’re able to see some sort of path out of the dark.”
You can check out the album artwork, full track listing, a stream of lead single ‘Live Outside’, and pre-order options below:
01.) The Spark
02.) The Sights
03.) Live Outside [stream]
04.) Take My Country Back
06.) Rabble Rouser
08.) Undercover Agents
09.) The Revolt Of The Atoms
10.) An Ode To Lost Jigsaw Pieces (In Two Movements)
11.) The Embers
You can pre-order the album online now via the band’s official webstore (here).
As the track listing doesn’t feature the tracks ‘Redshift’, ‘Hoodwinker’, or ‘Supercharge’, which were singles released following their last LP ‘The Mindsweep’, these would remain as one-off singles.
It’s unconfirmed at this time if they’ll be featured as bonus tracks on a deluxe edition of ‘The Spark’, or their own separate EP release – both options that the band have opted for in the past.
