ENTER SHIKARI “THE PADDINGTON FRISK” 04:04:13

IMG_1959

RECORDED MUSIC;

February 2013 : “fresh” from completing a comprehensive tour of mainland Europe which saw the band playing and subsequently selling out some of the largest continental shows of their career thus far, Enter Shikari lock themselves away in Chapel Studios, Lincolnshire with producer Dan Weller (previously in the chair for the band’s 2012 UK top 5 and end-of-year poll shattering album ‘A Flash Flood Of Colour’) armed with a bag full of demo sketches and no remit other than pleasing themselves. The completed three tracks, even in their rough mix form, show a band pushing their already unique sound even further; distilling their art into an ever purer state of ‘Enter Shikari-ness’, prompting @danweller to take to Twitter to proclaim the results as the best work the band has ever produced.

March 2013 : the sessions are whisked to the other side of the planet to where Australia producer, mixer, two-time ARIA award nominee, Forrester Savell (Karnivool / Dead Letter Circus) begins mixing two of the tracks.

Meanwhile, in an unassuming film studio in north east London, Enter Shikari and director Jamie Korn set to work shooting a music video worthy of its soundtrack.

April 2013 : on the eve of a month-long tour of the UK, the band will release the first fruits of their previous two month’s endeavours.

Entitled “The Paddington Frisk” (the name given to the ‘dance’ performed by the twitching bodies of poor wretches fighting for life as they hung from the gallows at Tyburn), the first track to be unveiled ventures to the less frequently heard extremes of the Shikari sound, as the band call upon the hardcore-punk-rooted corner of their influences to deliver a short, sharp shock that once again establishes their position as a band impossible to second guess and unwilling to be pinned down.

In a landscape where “UK rock” has become increasingly competitive, leading a majority of its brightest lights to edge ever closer to the middle of the road in their attempts to grasp the brass ring, Enter Shikari once again take the only sensible option and veer sharply off-road altogether, mapping their own path and kicking up far too much dust to make it even worth looking behind to see if anyone’s following.

“The Paddington Frisk” will be let loose on the evening on Thursday 4th April via iTunes, YouTube and www.entershikari.com. More details will be available nearer the time.

Enter_Shikari_Paddington_Frisk_web

May 2013 : as an aside, and looking ever so slightly further into the future, the CD + DVD set “Live At The Barrowland. Bootleg Series Vol.5″ will be released during this merry merry month of May. As the name would suggest, this is the fifth in an ongoing series of limited edition live releases made available directly from the band’s webstore. This edition was recorded and filmed at Glasgow’s Barrowland Ballroom during Enter Shikari’s Dec 2012 “A Flash Flood Of Xmas” tour. Preorders start any day now.

LIVE SHOWS; also on the 4th of April, the band embark on their second UK tour in the space of four months. The ‘Return To Energiser 2013′ tour is a month-long jaunt, focussing for the most part (a couple of notable exceptions) on towns and cities that do not often find themselves troubled by rock tours of any note. Already sold out in several towns, and looking likely to do the same pretty much everywhere else by the time dates start, the tour also features rising UK grime / tech-metal outfit Hacktivist as support, with a selection of Britain’s most exciting young rock artists opening various dates along the way (see below for more details of that).

For one special ‘hometown’ (or near-as-dammit, given the options are very very limited) show at Hatfield Forum, Herts (where all profits from the night will be donated to anti-poverty charity ActionAidUK) the bill is joined by longtime friends and fellow Hertfordshire boys Don Broco, as well as local legends the very mighty JBM. BBC Radio One DJ, ActionAid Ambassador, and all round good guy Huw Stephens will compare the evenings entertainment.

This tour will be the band’s last extended stint of UK headline shows for quite some time, with the remainder of the year filled by grappling with writing for album #4, playing summer festivals across Europe and the UK (including headlining the Second Stage at 2013′s Download Festival. The band’s biggest festival appearance of their career thus far), and focussing on their personal lives for a short while.

QUEENSRYCHE – UPCOMING APRIL DATES RESCHEDULED FOR OCTOBER

QR

Legendary Seattle progressive hard rockers QUEENSRYCHE are rescheduling some of their upcoming European shows next month. The postponement of these dates is caused by changes in the bands promotional schedule brought upon by their new label, Century Media Records, in order to meet the demands of their upcoming June 10th worldwide release date.  All affected performances have been moved to October in an effort to honor the band’s desire to play for their fans around the globe. A complete list of all European tour dates for QUEENSRYCHE can be seen below.

Please note, the Sweden Rock Cruise and the Power Prog & Metal Festival in Belgium have not been affected. While the promoters of the other shows were gracious and accommodating enough to move around their dates, the cruise and festival show obviously could not be changed. QUEENSRYCHE did not want to miss out on these amazing events knowing there was no chance to make them up to the fans.

The band also debuted the full version of the song “Redemption” on SiriusXM Satellite Radio on Monday March 25th on Ozzy’s Boneyard and Eddie Trunk Live/Trunk Nation simultaneously at 7:00PM EST/4:00PM PST. The song is posted on the label’s YouTube page and can be viewed at http://youtu.be/6w4RfoUv9KU.

The band wrote “Redemption” collectively with Michael and Todd with the melodies and lyrics written by Todd. The single “Redemption” and upcoming Century Media release marks the debut from the lineup comprised of Todd La Torre (Vocals), Michael Wilton (Guitars), Parker Lundgren (Guitars), Eddie Jackson (Bass) and Scott Rockenfield (Drums). The song was mixed and mastered by famed QUEENSRYCHE producer James “Jimbo” Barton who is known for working on the band’s classics Operation: Mindcrime and Empire.

QUEENSRYCHE – rescheduled 2013 dates:

12/10 London, UK O2 Academy

16/10 Manchester, UK The Ritz

17/10 Nottingham, UK Rock City

18/10 Dublin, Ireland The Academy Dublin

QUEENSRYCHE is:

Todd La Torre – Vocals

Michael Wilton – Guitars

Parker Lundgren – Guitars

Eddie Jackson – Bass

Scott Rockenfield – Drums

ORPHANED LAND – NEW ALBUM IN JUNE

6

ORPHANED LAND, the pioneers of oriental metal music and warriors of light are in the final process of recording their long awaited new album. This release is the band’s 6th full length and marks another big step forward, it is the logical evolution from the last studio release ‘The Never Ending Way Of ORwarriOR’.

The title of the new album will be ‘All Is One’ and it surfaces on June 24th (USA June 25th), 2013! Singer Kobi Farhi explains the material as follows:

“I’ll say it plain and simple – “All Is One” is ORPHANED LAND’s best album so far, I feel that we took all aspects to a new level – the way we write, arrange, play and produce. We recorded the album in 3 countries (Turkey, Sweden & Israel) and it turned out so strong, we can’t stop listening to it. The album is very rich in sound with more than 40 people participating (choirs, violins, and many traditional instruments, too). Our secret recipe was always the fact that unlike many other bands, ORPHANED LAND doesn’t follow ONE master mind that writes everything, we work in a way that All Is One. We create our music in a perfect blend of synergy and harmony and all the band members are a part of this process, we translate the album’s title and message exactly in the way we work, and we always hope we could give a bit of an inspiration to the people in the tragic Middle Eastern lands. We have fans all over the Middle East, we live in a place where huge amounts of people who consider themselves enemies still share one thing in common, they are all fans of ORPHANED LAND, and in these lands of orphans and bloody holy wars our only weapon is music, and hopefully we will grow to understand that All Is One.”
