Enter Shikari’s Mindsweep album is undoubtably one of the best albums of the year to date. Enter Shikari are well known for their willingness to experiment with their music and they are never afraid to add unexpected elements to their sound.
I reported a few week ago that Enter Shikari were due to release a remix of the Mindsweep in collaboration with Dance orientated label Hospital Records. The Mindsweep: Hospitalised is a complete reimagining of the tracks on the album and today Enter Shikari have released a video of the second song to get the hospital treatment. “There’s A Price On Your Head” has been remixed by Drum and Bass Legend Danny Byrd.
Enter Shikari front-man Rou Reynolds says “We presented Danny with this absolutely raucous track with ridiculous time signatures, all of which were outside of his comfort zone and he turned it into a summery tune! You’d never think this song could be anything but furious but what he’s done is awesome”
‘The Mindsweep: Hospitalised’ is released October 30th on Ambush Reality/Play It Again Sam and available on CD, 2 x orange vinyl and digital formats. Pre-order bundles and more details are available from:http://www.entershikari.com/enter-shikari-hospital-records-presents/
Enter Shikari have also this week re-released vinyl versions of back-catalogue albums ‘Take To The Skies’ (now as a clear vinyl 2xLP set) and ‘A Flash Flood Of Colour’ (red & yellow splatter vinyl and in a new sleeve from previous pressings). The releases are available from all good record stores and from the band’s own store: http://www.entershikari.com/store
