[AUDIO INTERVIEW] Enter Shikari

England’s very own emulsion of post-hardcore and electronic music comes straight from the aggressive echoes of Enter Shikari – one of Australia’s common and regular musical visitors who’ve gained nothing but heavy, requited love from their fan base since 2008, where the band made their debut at the Big Day Out festival. Now, returning for another round of shows for 2015’s The Mindsweep record, the UK quartet decided to wrap up the tour in support of the album in Australia before getting back to work on writing their next LP.

Callum sat down with them on a cold Monday afternoon to chat with Rou Reynolds and Rob Rolfe about the band’s last few gigs for The Mindsweep Tour, along with some stories of their time in Australia and hints on the new record they’re cooking up soon.

Written by Callum Doig

Growing up around tracks at the young age of eight from Rage Against the Machine to Queens of the Stone Age and At the Drive-In, I found my love for heavy music develop quicker and quicker, as I got into countless bands in genres from Alternative, Prog, Stoner and Math Metal over the years. Being part of the music journalism industry since 2013, I’ve had the honour to review the legendary Soundwave Festival twice, Unify, and the last ever Big Day Out, as well as interview big names such as Zakk Wylde, Matthias Jabs, Richard Patrick, Greg Puciato, Mikael Akerfeldt, A Nameless Ghoul and many, many more. With metal and rock music playing a massive part of my life since I was young, and eventually became inspired to pick up multiple instruments, I couldn’t have picked a better genre to influence me into getting involved in the scene, regardless of what the position would be. Heavy music has done more for me than anyone or anything else, and I intend to stick around for more and more as the years go by.
