UK based ENTER SHIKARI have announced they will release Common Dreads in the United States June 16. The follow up album to the band’s debut, Take To The Skies, will be released digitally through iTunes and Amazon as well as through the band’s merch store. In what fans have come to expect from the DIY quartet the music within Common Dreads will still twist of Refused’s screamo-punk, the everyday colloquial man-in-the-street chats of The Streets‘ Mike Skinner and nods towards The Prodigy, the most pumpin’ drum & bass, the most euphoric of trance, Altern-8 and even some of the darkest of dubstep too. Influences and genres aside the album is destined to unite the tribes, divide the critics and thoroughly satisfy anyone who has witnessed the mad live spectacle that is Enter Shikari.
The question still remains, what are Common Dreads exactly? “They’re shared worries,” says lead vocalist Rou Reynolds. “The things that concern people today on a global level ? catastrophic climate change, wars, terror laws, CCTV society, modern imperialism and the affects of capitalism.” Enter Shikari fans will soon find solace from those everyday worries with the release of Common Dreads, available June 16th in digital format from iTunes and Amazon. And for the fans who would rather hold a physical copy in their hands, Enter Shikari has made Limited Edition bundles available through their merch store in both physical and digital formats.
