ENTER SHIKARI have today released their highly-anticipated new album A Kiss for the Whole World.  Buy / stream A Kiss for the Whole World HERE.

Enter Shikari have a way with opening statements and as their new album begins with the words “Be embraced, billions” (‘A Kiss for the Whole World x’), we immediately learn plenty about the band’s ambition for this album to touch people. Its trio of whirlwind single releases to date have reignited dormant sparks (‘(pls) set me on fire’), confronted how we measure self-worth (‘It Hurts’) and eyed the trappings of cyclical mistakes (‘Bloodshot’). Journeying through the new album, we are met with calls to revel in the power of spontaneity, (‘Leap Into The Lightning’), encouraged to explore (‘Jailbreak’), and – most poignantly – asked to consider the changing nature of identity (‘giant pacific octopus’).

For Enter Shikari, rejuvenation, resilience and resurrection have been on the agenda as they’ve been introducing the new songs to huge audiences in the UK, Europe, US and Japan on a series of innovative live residency dates this Spring. This summer the band returns to bring their incendiary live show to the headline slot at Slam Dunk Festival in what is their only UK festival appearance of 2023. Slam Dunk Festival takes place across two sites in Leeds and Hatfield on the 27th and 28th May, respectively.

A Kiss for the Whole World heralds the band’s most vibrant, direct and life-affirming album so far.

Lead vocalist and producer Rou Reynolds says: “I’m so excited to let this beast out into the wild! It’s such a vibrant album, a cocktail of emotions and I can’t wait for people to delve in.  Judging on the way the tracks we’ve played live so far are going down, I think it’s really gonna connect with people.”
