English Post-Hardcore band Enter Shikari is currently on tour supporting their third album, which will be released early 2012. The band will be visiting 13 countries in 3 weeks, playing 18 shows. Studio Rock will be present in Tilburg on October 3rd, where they will play the final gig of the tour. The band started in 2003 when the band â€œHybridâ€ evolved into â€œEnter Shikariâ€. All 4 previous members are now in the new band. The music of the band can be described as experimental, with influences of drum and bass, techno, dubstep and rock music. In 2007, the first album, â€œTake to the Skiesâ€, was released. The album had some minor success in the UK, and also sold a number of records outside of the UK. The second album, â€œCommon Dreadsâ€, was released in 2009. It was received very well by magazines like Kerrang and Metal Hammer. The album entered the UK album chart at number 16 in the first week after selling 15000 copies. On September 19th, the first single from the new album, â€œSssnakepitâ€ was released. Later this year, the band will be touring the US and Canada.
Your Demise is the first support act on the tour. Having shared stages earlier with Biohazard, Comeback Kid and A Day to Remember, theyâ€™re used to bigger audiences. In the past, the band has gone through some major changes, and none of the original members are in the band anymore. Their next album â€œThe Golden Ageâ€ is supposed to be released in the spring of 2012.
Letlive is the third band on the tour. The Americans are still touring in support of their third album â€œFake Historyâ€ which was released in 2010, but re-released in 2011.
