On 28th May 2019, Faber Music will publish 'Dear Future Historians (Lyrics and Exegesis of Rou Reynolds for the music of Enter Shikari 2006 - 2019).' Pre-order here.
The book compiles the contents of the original March 2017 deluxe hardback 'Dear Future Historians' along with its “sequel” 2018 paperback 'The Spark' (both of which are now out-of-print and much sought after), along with three more track lyrics and essays plus new artwork and photos. 'Dear Future Historians: 2006-2019' delves into the heart of the band, featuring Rou Reynolds’ song interpretations and social commentary, alongside all of their lyrics to date. Printed in full colour throughout it includes album artwork, posters, and exclusive photographs.
Rou says: “I’m a strong believer that dissection and analysis of music or art does not - contrary to popular belief - diminish it or reduce its magic. As Beethoven said: 'Don't only practice your art, but force your way into its secrets; art deserves that'. I hope readers of this piece of explanatory literature will find it exciting and interesting.”
A recording of Rou Reynolds' performing 'The Spark'’s 'Undercover Agents' live at the launch of 'The Spark' book in November 2018 has just been released by the band. Enter Shikari have also announced an extensive summer run of European festivals (and a handful of Romanian headline shows). Check out the tour dates below.
