Enter Shikari today announce the November 4th release of ‘Live at Alexandra Palace’. The album takes the band’s ‘Bootleg Series’ to its sixth release, and will be available via Ambush Reality / Play It Again Sam as download/stream from all online outlets, plus in limited edition 2xCD and splatter-coloured-vinyl 2xLP formats.
‘Live at Alexandra Palace’ features the full set (minus one track, due to technical issues on the night) from the band’s sold out show at the 9000 capacity London venue back in February 2016, and was edited and mixed by guitarist Rory Clewlow and Tim Morris (the band’s live monitors engineer, as well as engineer / assistant producer on the A Flash Flood Of Colour and The Mindsweep albums).
A video for a live version of the ‘Redshift’ single, shot and recorded at the show, was released by the band in June 2016 and can be viewed here:
(That video constitutes the only video track from the event due to a hitch with the filming which is why you’re not currently reading information about a DVD release. True fact).
Enter Shikari also recently released a 30 minute ‘mini-documentary’ from the Feb 2016 UK arena tour, which you can see here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zk76UX8onSc
The tracklist for ‘Live at Alexandra Palace’ is:
1. Intro / Solidarity
2. Sorry You’re Not A Winner
3. The One True Colour
4. The Last Garrison / No Sleep Tonight
7. Slipshod / The Jester
8. Price On Your Head (inc. Danny Byrd Remix)
9. Dear Future Historians
10. Arguing With Thermometers
11. Gandhi Mate, Gandhi
12. Torn Apart
15. Anaesthetist (inc. Reso Remix)
16. The Appeal & The Mindsweep II
Tying neatly into the release, Enter Shikari have also this week announced one final UK show, before disappearing into the winter solstice period and demoing for future releases.
The band have been personally invited by Bring Me The Horizon to play the role of Very Special Guests at their London O2 Arena Halloween show (on October 31st, of course). This show will be the first time the bands have played on the same (non-festival) show bill since a one-off show in Las Vegas, USA in June 2010, and the first time in the UK since a show at the tiny Leeds Packhorse venue in 2005, when combined band members numbered more than paying audience!
