Enter Shikari announce new album, share the first single

February 11, 2020

It was all leading to this. The definitive Enter Shikari album 'Nothing Is True & Everything Is Possible,' released April 17th,  2020 via So Recordings. in order to celebrate the announcement, Enter Shikari released their first single '{The Dreamers Hotel}' available now everywhere.

'Nothing Is True & Everything Is Possible' is produced to dazzling effect by renowned frontman and visionary Rou Reynolds, from a band at the peak of their creative output with a unique story, underlining their 13-year succession as a pioneering and uncompromising musical force. This is an album about possibility, the unnerving irony of endless possibility, the band asking themselves what they can achieve as the world questions “what is possible?”.
 

'Nothing Is True & Everything Is Possible' is a lucid soundtrack for a new decade, with a poignant social commentary that expertly leads the listener from pure pop to scorching punk-rock fury, through four-to-the-floor beats and beautiful orchestral composition. 'Waltzing Off The Face Of The Earth' (I. Crescendo) and (II. Plangevole) draws you into the madness of modern life: “you can’t trust your own eyes, and you only hear lies, our future’s been denied and there’s nowhere to hide now that nothing is true and everything is possible.” 'Elegy For Extinction' is a classical gem recorded in Prague with the City Of Prague Symphony Orchestra, and arranged by renowned film and television soundtrack composer George Fenton ('Gandhi,' 'Blue Planet,' 'Planet Earth,' 'Groundhog Day,' 'My Name Is Joe'), and the first single '{ The Dreamers Hotel }' a lavishly produced anthem.

 

The inspiration for 'Nothing Is True & Everything Is Possible' came while putting together their book 'Dear Future Historians' published by Faber, which charts the lyrical creativity of the band. Reynolds comments: “Looking at all we had achieved, gave us a better sense of perspective and confidence... What are we capable of? What is possible? These questions are part of Shikari’s DNA. But now we reflect a society where possibility itself has drifted from something of optimistic opportunity to something quite frightening.”

 

Rou Reynolds is post-punk’s renaissance man; a musician, producer, composer, published author, and campaigner, who has spent much of the last few years as an advocate of mental health charities following his well-documented struggles on Enter Shikari’s 2017' critically acclaimed album 'The Spark.' The last decade has seen Enter Shikari increase their stature year on year, a rare career story which has taken them to 4 Top 10 albums, millions of streams, huge sell out world tours (most recently in Russia and two American), as well as multiple awards, last year crowned Best British Band by Rocksound, with Best Album for 'The Spark' at 2018’s Kerrang! Awards.
