Enter Shikari’s tour with The Wonder Years and The King Blues later this month features some really massive dates, including a stop at London’s Alexandra Palace – but that doesn’t mean they’re relinquishing control, say the band.
“Even though it’s an arena scale tour, it’s still very DIY,” explains vocalist Rou Reynolds in the new issue of Upset. “We’re doing all the programming ourselves. I’m doing all the footage and the effects for the screens.”
“I’ve basically been in front of the screen coding for the last few months,” he adds, “and it’s going to be good to get out of the house to see the fruits of our labour on the big screen.”
