UK powerhouse Enter Shikari is marking the one year anniversary of their universally acclaimed 2023 full length, A Kiss for the Whole World, with the news of a companion release as well as the news of massive U.S. tour. 

Introducing Dancing on the Frontline, the album augments the efforts of last year's LP with a collection of remixes, standalone collab singles with the likes of Wargasm, Cody Frost, AViVA and Jason Aalon Butler of Fever 333 and live recordings all in the wake of A Kiss For the Whole World. 

Speaking of the pending release and the motivation to compile the presentation, Enter Shikari architect Rou Reynolds explained, “We’re exactly one year on from the release of A Kiss For The Whole World, so it feels like the right time to present all our output from this crazy year, along with some new treats, all in one place."

Reynolds continued, "We’ve not had a lot of time or energy to do any Shikari Sound System mixes for a while, so it was great to be able to step back into that chair and remix 'Goldfish' and 'Bloodshot'. We tested out the Goldfish rework live on our UK & European tour and insanity ensued.”

To officially begin the campaign towards the June 7th release via SO Recordings, the band has delivered the opening selection from the album with the road-tested, fan approved rework in "Goldfish (Shikari Sound System remix)".



Best framing what has been a breakout, whirlwind year for Enter Shikari, Dancing on the Frontline also features a Blu-ray of the band's headlining appearance at Slam Dunk Festival last year, as well as Germany's Vainstream Festival in the summer of 2022. 

In addition to the news of the new release, Enter Shikari has also revealed plans for a comprehensive tour of the U.S. later this fall. Recruiting You Me at Six for what will be their final North American shows as well as Aussie pop-punks Yours Truly, the run will begin October 9th in Dallas, TX and close out November 9th in Los Angeles at the Belasco Theater.

Reynolds spoke candidly about the tour announcement and his eagerness to hit the road with both You Me at Six and Yours Truly, as American audiences are finally coming 'round. 

"North America has always been difficult for Shikari, long tours, thousands of miles, and playing venues smaller than most of the other rooms we get to visit around the world. But we’ve always kept returning because there’s a real zest and passion from our audience out there, even if fewer people ‘get us’.

Recently things seem to have begun sizzling a bit more for us, with more shows selling out and more intensity in the crowds. So it’s some reward for our tenacity that we’re returning in October for what will be our biggest ever North American headline tour. And that will be made all the sweeter by being able to bring our friends You Me At Six with us for this one. We’ve known each other a long time, but somehow only ever played a couple of shows together, so the fact that they’re joining us for what will be their last ever USA & Canada tour really means something to us."

Dancing On the Frontline arrives June 7th via SO Recordings.
