ENTER SHIKARI Announce Surprise Guest For Alexandra Palace show

Regular readers are probably aware by now that I think Enter Shikari are by some distance the best live band in the world right now.  I enjoy them so much that I am attending three of their seven upcoming arena shows.  I will be taking in the shows in Nottingham, Bournemouth and at London’s Alexandra Palace.  I was already pretty excited by a lineup that includes support from The Wonder Years and a recently reformed The King Blues.

An announcement by Enter Shikari today announce the addition of London’s Arcane Roots to the bill of their Alexandra Palace headline show later this month. Currently writing and demoing for their second full-length album, Arcane Roots join a bill that also includes Pennsylvania’s The Wonder Years and the freshly-reformed original line-up of The King Blues.

Frontman Rou Reynolds had this to say ; “the Arcane Roots boys supported us in Europe last year and we had such a good time, and they’re such a great band, that it was a no-brainer to have them along for this show when the opportunity arose. We’re really looking forward to presenting such a diverse bill to the punters of Norf London”.

Enter Shikari recently released not only a brand new stand-alone single, ‘Redshift’ but also a digital only live acoustic EP recorded in the Victorian Theatre at Alexandra Palace in December 2015 in front of a handful of friends and competition winners.

The band tours the UK up to the Ally Pally show, before heading out to Europe for headline shows.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
