Enter Shikari profile

With it being a good while since the release and major hype of their debut album ‘Take To The Skies’, it’s about time they gave us something new to refresh our minds as to why we love Enter Shikari so much. As with all their previously released material, ‘We Can Breathe In Space, They Just Don’t Want Us To Escape’ as a slice of fun and energetic post-hardcore music fused with electronic input.

Though ‘We Can Breathe In Space…’ is fairly known anyway due to an old demo of the track floating around online, this reinvented and reworked effort revives and replenishes its old form and gives it a new face. Despite this though, it doesn’t quite seem up to scratch to what you’d expect, slightly lacking that huge kick in the face Enter Shikari is known for. But, it’s none the less welcomed with wide open arms as a bridge from the previous album to the next.

Nice one lads, we’ve missed you.
