Tracking the full story of Enter Shikari, from beginning to end.
Enter Shikari are set to release their first ever authorised biography, ‘Standing Like Statues’, on October 26.
Written by Luke Morton and published by Faber Music, it “tells the Shikari story through a series of comprehensive interviews with all members of the band and the team that surrounds them.”
On the release, frontman Rou Reynolds says “It’s such a joy to now have our story thus far recorded forever. Luke has done an incredible job of making sense of a band that’s not so easy to make sense of. Almost everything about this band is convoluted, unconventional or contradictory, but Luke has hacked his way through this jungle and created a clear – and, most importantly, – entertaining path!”
He continues “He’s been there since pretty much the very beginning, and it’s an honour to have someone so passionate, adroit and empathetic tell our story up to this point, just as we’re taking our first tentative steps into “the next era” of Enter Shikari. It feels surreal and incredibly gratifying to have this book, and I’m so glad to have a record of it all before our memories inevitably fade.”

Plus, the band will be holding three exclusive live events with Rough Trade stores across the UK featuring a Q&A with the band and author, hosted by radio presenter Sophie K, plus a book signing for audience members. Get more info right here.
