Enter Shikari is offering a live free EP for fans to download on their website right now. Free Live EPs seem like the thing to do nowadays, Fitz and the Tantrums just did the same thing earlier in the week. But back to Enter Shikarim “Live In London NW5” is a free, download only, live EP featuring five tracks recorded at a special intimate London show in Feb 2012.
The show itself was filmed and recorded for television broadcast, and low-quality audio rips have naturally found themselves floating round the internets in recent weeks, so a plan was hatched to put out some nice 320kbps MP3 all nicely artworked-up and lovely. The tracks themselves can be downloaded here. While multi-camera footage from the show can be found here.
Enter Shikari have this week returned from North America, where they not only undertook a largely sold out, six week long, headline tour, but also filmed a video for forthcoming single “Warm Smiles Do Not Make You Welcome Here”, which is currently in the editing process under the watchful eye of director Raul Gonzo (who was also responsible for January’s “Arguing With Thermometers” video). “Warm Smiles…” will be released in July as a special remix package… but well have more news on that as we approach the time.
The band will rest for a handful of days before being bundled into a tour bus to spend the summer beating the living daylights out of summer festivals across Europe and the UK, including a high profile main stage slot at this year’s Reading / Leeds festivals.
