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.
