You can check out my new interview with Enter Shikari vocalist Rou Reynolds here. The band's brand new album, The Mindsweep, is out now both in-stores and online.
It’s difficult, especially today because I feel like the education system, media, and the museums feel the need to make the sciences about “little explosions!” and “mixing this liquid with that liquid, woo!”. I think the most exciting thing for me is learning about stuff like cosmology, stuff that makes us feel really small and insignificant, that’s the most empowering thing.

Update: This chat is now over. We'd like to thank the guys from Enter Shikari for stopping by and answering everyone's questions! - JD
In just a couple hours at 2pm/5pm EST, the guys from Enter Shikari will be chatting in this thread under the following usernames: RouES, ChrisES, EnterRob, and RoryES. You can ask them about their headlining tour, which is happening right now (dates in the replies), or perhaps you could ask them about their new album The Mindsweep. Or, maybe you could ask them what things they like to eat on tour in America.
Tomorrow at 2pm PST/5pm EST, the guys from Enter Shikari will be stopping by to chat. You can ask them about their upcoming headlining tour, which kicked off yesterday (dates are in the replies). You could also ask them about their brand new record, The Mindsweep. Heck, you could ask them about what their favorite thing to eat on tour is.
Rou Reynolds of Enter Shikari has posted a response to the video that appeared of him throwing punches at a fan that apparently "groped" him during a show in the UK. Full thing is in the replies.
I defy anyone to have their scrotum grabbed and not lash out instinctively...
Obviously violence is never the answer and I'm very unhappy personally with how I acted. I should have left the crowd and headed back to stage immediately when this started happening but due to the density of the crowd and the intensity of the situation things played out differently, I'm only human.
You can check out our interview with Marmozetshere. They're definitely a band to watch in 2015, as they have a wild live performance. Catch them on tour with Enter Shikari and Stray From The Path in the spring, dates are in the replies.
Enter Shikariwill release a new single titled "Radiate" on Monday June 10th. They're currently filming a video for it as well. This is the second song to be released of three they recorded early this year.
Enter Shikari have announced that, following a couple of years of frustration, drummer Rob Rolfe has finally acquired his US work visa and will be joining the band for their North American headline tour next month. In other news, the band have recently spent time at a studio in the north of England putting down three new tracks. The first of these tracks should see the light of day sometime very soon.
Enter Shikari have revealed their 'Return To Energiser 2013' tour, which takes in a load of towns that usually get overlooked. Hacktivist will be main support on all dates and more details are in the replies.
Enter Shikari has posted a free live EP recorded from an intimate show the band played in London back in February. You can download the EP here, while live footage from the show is also available here.
