Enter Shikari unveil new track ‘thē kĭñg’

Last night, Enter Shikari unveiled a second track ‘thē kĭñg,’ from their anticipated album ‘Nothing Is True & Everything Is Possible’ released on 17th April 2020, through So Recordings. ‘thē kĭñg’ fuses breakbeat tempo verses with brass-fuelled punk roar choruses, passing through an unexpected minimal “pop drop” on a journey towards its (in the parlance of the composer Rou Reynolds) “ghastly breakdown.”

Frontman Rou Reynolds said: ‘thē kĭñg’ is about the fervent, rushed desire we as humans often have for revenge. It’s almost a lesson in patience and forgiveness. Not just lyrically, but also because of how much of a struggle this boisterous track was to make. The fiddly detail in the drum production, the weird guitar tones, the five different choruses I went through before finding the right one! We’re glad we stuck with it and tamed this beast and can’t wait to play it live.”
