Enter Shikari

It was only this week that we told you about Enter Shikari's frontman Rou Reynolds' charitable project for ActionAid and the release of his ROUT-branded fundraising EP (to be launched at the Reading Festival this coming weekend, or past weekend if you're ogling this afterwards!). Now it's the turn of the rest of the band to reveal their busy schedule for the rest of the year - and it involves you, dear reader.

As any self-respecting Shikarite knows, the band get all festive towards the middle of December, usually performing boisterous shows in and around their home-turf. For 2012, however, the band's travelling bug continues to bite with the announcement of a sackful of seasonal shows across the UK. This follows appearances at festivals across Europe including Reading and Leeds, plus shows in Australia and the U.S..

The 'A Flash Flood of Christmas' tour will take in several cities with most having two dates assigned to them. First stop will be Manchester on 6th and 7th December, followed by one stop in Newcastle, then two in Glasgow, Birmingham, London and finally Norwich on 19th and 20th. We will have tickets on sale from 9am Friday 31st August.

Joining Enter Shikari throughout the tour will be Cancer Bats and Engine-Earz Experiment, making it all that bit more value for money!
