Enter Shikari - Common Dreads + 2010 tour dates, Vans Warped Tour

UK juggernauts Enter Shikari, known for an eclectic sound that audaciously melds hardcore punk with pulse-pumping drum 'n' bass and dark, gut-churning dubstep, are set to join A Day To Remember, August Burns Red and Silverstein on the North American TOURSICK tour starting March 30, 2010 in Ft Lauderdale, FL. A number of dates are already sold out.

Enter Shikari's latest release, Common Dreads (which debuted at #7 in the UK) is the follow-up to the gold-certified debut Take To The Skies - which also debuted in the UK top 10, earning the band headlining gigs and regular spots on the major worldwide festival circuit. The band's most recent UK headline tour culminated with a triumphant show in front of over 5000 fans at the Hammersmith Apollo.

Common Dreads is available digitally in the United States via the band's own imprint Ambush Reality in partnership with DGC/Interscope Records. The physical release will be available in all Hot Topic stores beginning April 13th. Fans can also purchase the album at all shows as well as from the band's merch store.

For the latest album, the group headed to the isolated Isle Of Wight and holed-up at Arreton Manor studio for three months with veteran producer Andy Gray (U2, Tori Amos, Korn, Gary Numan). Common Dreads is a 15-song soundtrack for an entire generation on a mission to define the era in which it was born: one of recession, paranoia, state control and the fallout of decades of accelerated capitalism; and on the other side, an era of hope, creativity, humanity, hedonism, irreverence and fun.

"Politics are unavoidable," explains lead vocalist ROU REYNOLDS. "We just can't write sappy music. Our first album was cryptic and metaphor-heavy, this one is more direct. Since we gained popularity, we realized, whether we like it or not, we have the ability to influence people - and with that is a responsibility to speak our minds."

Common Dreads is destined to unite the tribes, divide the critics and thoroughly satisfy anyone who has witnessed the mad live spectacle that is Enter Shikari.

Enter Shikari is: Rou Reynolds (vocals / electronics) Rory Clewlow (guitar / backing vocals) Chris Batten (bass / vocals) Rob Rolfe (drums).
