Enter Shikari are coming to Singapore for the first time next month.
Thanks to promoters Street Noise SG, the British post-hardcore group will play at The Substation on 26 April, supported by local alternative rock group Boxchild.
It appears that Singapore and Bangkok will be Enter Shikari's only two Southeast Asian dates this tour. The band are currently promoting their latest album, The Spark, which was released last September.
Enter Shikari first emerged in Hertfordshire, England from the ashes of a group called Hybryd. The group swiftly built a loyal following off their fusion of metalcore, post-hardcore and dance music, their willingness to take on political topics in their aggressive, cathartic music, and their brutal touring schedule.
Enter Shikari's lineup – vocalist Rou Reynolds, guitarist Liam ‘Rory’ Clewlow, bassist Chris Batten, and drummer Rob Rolfe – has remained stable since its inception in 2003. “We’ve known each other since 5 years old," Rolfe told Bandwagon in a 2015 interview ahead of the release of The Mindsweep. "It’s difficult to imagine our lives without each other. Especially when we’re in the studio, we work off and inspire each other. At the same time, we’re not afraid to tell each other if an idea is shit."
Enter Shikari will perform in Singapore at The Substation on Thursday, 26 April. Boxchild will support. Doors open at 6pm. Tickets priced at $65 for a standard ticket and $75 for a door ticket are available now here.
