Enter Shikari have released ‘Bloodshot’, the third single to be taken from their forthcoming album ‘A Kiss For The Whole World’.

The new release follows ‘(pls) set me on fire’ and ‘It Hurts’, both of which received their first live outings during the band’s run of sold-out February residency shows in the UK.

The British rock band have been pushing themes of rejuvenation and resilience as they release new music in the run-up to the release of their seventh album, set for release on 21st April via SO Recordings / Ambush Reality.

And with the arrival of ‘Bloodshot’, the band aren’t done posing questions to themselves, as lead vocalist and producer Rou Reynolds explains:

“Every day, I seem to be asking myself “Is this article biased?”, “Is this claim true?”, “Should I be more furious about this issue? Or less furious?”, “Am I being manipulated? Provoked? Radicalised by my own ‘tribe’? 

“‘Bloodshot’ is about how hard it is to find truth, and how easy it is to stop thinking for yourself and simply repeat your ‘team’s’ mantras. 

“Everyone’s so fucking angry with everyone else and it’s exhausting. It seems like social media’s main purpose these days is to hypnotise us to hate”.

Enter Shikari are currently one-third of their way through their sold-out run of UK / EU & US residency shows, which concludes at New York’s Bowery Ballroom on 10th May. 

‘A Kiss For The Whole World’ will be released three years since the band’s previous album, ‘Nothing Is True & Everything Is Possible’.
