Enter Shikari have announced their highly anticipated new album ‘A Kiss For The Whole World’, due out on 21 April 2023.

The band have also revealed lead single ‘(pls) set me on fire’.

Discussing the single’s conception, frontman Rou Reynolds commented, “Honestly, I thought I was f*****. I’ve never felt so detached from my soul, my purpose, my f****** spirit. I didn’t write music for almost two years. The longest I’d gone before that was two weeks. I was broken. It’s almost as if my brain had asked: “What is the point in music if it cannot be shared? What is the point in writing music if it’s not to be experienced with others?” and then promptly switched itself off. ‘(pls) set me on fire’ grew out of that desperation. This song is a projectile vomit of positive energy. Every emotion trapped inside me for two years, finally set free.”


The new full-length is the follow-up to 2020’s ‘Nothing Is True & Everything Is Possible’.

In addition to a run of very special album release shows across Europe and the US, the band have announced a UK residency tour for early this year.

Reynolds said, “It’s hard to do anything interesting with live shows today. We wanted to do something different. We’re going to become a local band to five major cities in the UK. It’s going to be interesting to see how the shows evolve every time we return.”
