Enter Shikari’s Rou Reynolds To Release New Book

Enter Shikari frontman is releasing a collection of essays, lyrics and more in his new book

Enter Shikari frontman Rou Reynolds has announced that he’ll be releasing a new book later this month.

The book, with the catchy title Dear Future Historians (Lyrics and Exegesis of Rou Reynolds for the music of Enter Shikari 2006 — 2019), compiles his 2017 debut book Dear Future Historians along with last year’s The Spark paperback – both now out of print.

The new release will also include new essays, lyrics, artwork and photos from Rou.

I’m a strong believer that dissection and analysis of music or art does not — contrary to popular belief — diminish it or reduce its magic,” says Rou. As Beethoven said, Don’t only practice your art, but force your way into its secrets; art deserves that’. I hope readers of this piece of explanatory literature will find it exciting and interesting.” 

Dear Future Historians… will be released on May 28 through Faber Music. Pre-order now.

There will also be holding a series of book signings and solo acoustic performances across the UK.
