Tomorrow: Watch Enter Shikari Destroy Saint Vitus Bar In New York
Tomorrow night (October 17), Kerrang! has teamed up with Enter Shikari to bring you something very special.
Enter Shikari recently played Saint Vitus bar in Brooklyn, New York, in a venue wayyyy more intimate than they’re used to, and we were there to capture all of the sweaty chaos.
The full 64-minute set will be streaming tomorrow on Kerrang!’s Facebook and YouTube channel, which includes a smorgasbord of deep cuts and bona fide bangers – from Slipshod and Quelle Surprise to Mothership and Anaesthetist.
During the band’s time on tour in the United States, frontman Rou Reynolds wrote Kerrang! a tour diary. Here’s what he had to say about the Saint Vitus gig…
“New York shows are always high-energy. People travel in from New Jersey, Connecticut, Long Island and (of course) from The Five Boroughs themselves, and they’re looking for a good time. Bars generally stay open here til 4am, so people are used to partying hard. And tonight is no exception. We opt for our ‘heavier’ set, as the surroundings aren’t really conducive to the subtleties of Airfield and its ilk. The room erupts, and despite the conditions being more cramped than us or our New York fans are maybe used to, every inch of space gets used, even if its just filled with sweat.”
If you want to see just how wild the show gets, make sure you head to our Facebook page tomorrow, October 17, at 7:30pm BST (2:30pm EST / 11:30am PST), for an exclusive livestream of Enter Shikari’s Saint Vitus performance.
Here’s a glimpse of what went down.
