Enter Shikari Release Surprise Album ‘ Moratorium (Broadcasts From The Interruption)’

Surprise! Enter Shikari have released a new album, Moratorium (Broadcasts From The Interruption), a companion record to 2020’s Nothing Is True & Everything is Possible.

The record features a collection of songs recorded during the pandemic, including in-home studio sessions, acoustic performances, and two solo performances from frontman Rou Reynolds.

“With no live shows, and no real contact with the rest of the band, it was nice to at least be able to do some remote sessions together,” reflects the vocalist. ​“It was also interesting to develop acoustic and alternative versions of some of the new tracks. These performances went some way to filling the gaping hole in our lives!”

Reynolds continues: ​“After creating an acoustic version of The Dreamer’s Hotel to play during lockdown livestreams, I began to think that this rather dulcet adaption could benefit from some orchestral parts. I love composing and it was a joy to work with the Sofia Session Orchestra, who, as you’ll hear, nailed it.”

Stream Moratorium (Broadcasts From The Interruption) below. The album will also get a physical release as part of a deluxe two-disc version of Nothing Is True & Everything is Possible out June 16th. Pre-orders can be found here. Reynolds will also release his new book, A Treatise On Possibility: Perspectives On Humanity Hereafter, that same day.

Enter Shikari will embark on the Nothing is True & Everything is Possible tour starting December 2021. Find those dates here.
