Enter Shikari

Enter Shikari are an English four-piece rock band formed in 2003 in St Albans, Hertfordshire. They have a unique sound that combines post-hardcore and various heavy metal sub-genres with elements of electronic genres like industrial, dubstep, trance, and drum and bass. The band's name comes from a boat owned by Roughton "Rou" Reynolds' uncle and a character in a play he wrote before forming the band.

Their debut album, Take to the Skies, reached No. 4 on the Official UK Album Chart when it was released on March 19, 2007. Their second album, Common Dreads, debuted at No. 16 on the UK Albums Chart on June 15, 2009. A Flash Flood of Colour, their third studio album released on January 16, 2012 spent most of its release week at the top of the UK Album Chart but eventually debuted at No.4.

After extensively touring for A Flash Flood of Colour World Tour, Enter Shikari began working on their fourth studio album which was titled The Mindsweep and released in January 2015. It debuted at No.6 on the UK Albums Chart.
