ROCK fans are in for a treat as emo giants Enter Shikari are heading this way to play shows in Lincoln and Scunthorpe.
The band round off a solid 18 months of touring the world promoting their third album A Flash Flood Of Colour with the Return To Energiser 2013 UK and Ireland tour that sees them playing 24 intimate shows in towns that they have either not played for a long time, never played before, or that never really get rock shows on their doorstep.
A Flash Flood Of Colour piced up Kerrang! Magazine’s Album Of The Year honour, as well as high placings in the end of year polls and round-ups from Alternative Press, NME, Rock Sound, Punktastic and many more. December also saw the band closing out what had already been a massive year for them with a sold out UK tour, culminating in two nights at London’s 3000 capacity Camden Roundhouse.
Known for their live performances (which have earned them two Kerrang! Best Live Band Awards), and despite playing to over 30,000 people in the UK in December alone last year, the band wanted to take to the stages of Britain one more time in 2013.
The band said: “We speak to a lot of people who come to the big shows and we’re very aware that a large number of them travel distances to come and see us. Not everyone lives in a major city, so we figured it was time we went out and tried to visit some people a little closer to home. It’s going to be awesome to be in small rooms and up-close-and-personal with crowds again, plus visiting some new places along the way”.
Enter Shikari play Lincoln Engine Shed on Monday 22nd April and the Baths Hall in Scunthorpe on Wednesday 24th April. For tickets visit www.entershikari.com.
