Enter Shikari dropped a surprise single yesterday evening (Sunday 9th October) on Daniel P Carter’s BBC Radio 1’s Rock Show; and it’s now available to stream online – check out ‘Hoodwinker’ below. The song was recorded at the same time as previous surprise single ‘Redshift’, which came out earlier this year.
Frontman Rou Reynolds says of the new song:
“Every now and then, outside of album releases and their attendant “campaigns”, it’s nice to release a song into the wild, out-of-the-blue. To bowl it full force at the faces of the general public without prior warning.
“‘Hoodwinker’ is the current incoming projectile.
“It is Enter Shikari angrily calling out your God as an imposter. Which I’m afraid he is. I know you thought all the others were imposters and yours was in fact the real one, but I’m afraid he is a phoney too.
“We have clear evidence of false paperwork and forged documents.
“Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
“Please enjoy this piece of angry music though. I hope its frustration and righteous indignation will go some way to dampening the annoying news.”
The band will release new live album ‘Live At Alexandra Palace’ on 11th November.
