ENTER SHIKARI ‘THE MINDSWEEP’ LONDON POP UP SHOP OPENS JANUARY 19th 2015
To reach a crescendo on a 4 month journey of highs, lows, blood, sweat and tears... January 19th - the UK/IE release date of the band's 4th Album 'The Mindsweep' - will see Enter Shikari open their very own Pop Up Shop on Camden High Street for the day.
A celebration of the album's release for the band and fans alike, and a further breaking down of the wall between artist and audience that will see the band working behind the counter for the day… an antithesis to the “four guys behind a table, avoiding eye contact as they sign promo photos for an hour” meet & greets so popular in the alternative rock world these days.
Open from 11am right through to 7pm, Enter Shikari will be salespeople in their own shop/space, which will also contain expanded 'The Mindsweep' artwork on the walls, a Photo Gallery containing some never seen before shots, a T-Shirt design debuting exclusively at the shop, plenty of Free Giveaways and the chance for fans to buy the new album directly from the band themselves on day of release.
Come down and see it for yourself.
The band have just announced the tour supports for their February UK dates, which has this week added a second Sold Out night at London’s Camden Roundhouse.
Joining Enter Shikari for the tour will be Kent’s FEED THE RHINO, Yorkshire psych-grunge quintet ALLUSONDRUGS, and Glasgow’s FATHERSON.
