Enter Shikari return with the release a brand new stand-alone single. ‘Quelle Surprise’ by no means marks the band’s third album as being on the horizon, it is simply a track that the band feel is best in the hands of their fans than collecting dust in the office.
Recorded in London with Dan Weller (who was also responsible for last year’s ‘Destabilise’ single), the track exhibits yet more experimentation and blurring of genre boundaries. To push things even further, mixing duties were placed in the expert hands of mix legend Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Metallica, Glassjaw, Biffy Clyro, Franz Ferdinand and many many more).
‘Quelle Surprise’ will be initially released as a digital only single on Monday 19th May, as part of an EP that will also include two remixes of ‘Destabilise‘ (one by Rou under his ROUT production moniker, and one by new North London artists Creatures Of Love), plus a version of live favourite ‘Hectic’ recorded at the Enter Shikari Christmas Party show in Hertfordshire back in December. A limited edition, 2×7″ (one red vinyl, one white vinyl) pack of the EP will be released on Monday 11th July.
Also released on Monday 11th July is the long-awaited live documentary DVD ‘Live From Planet Earth’ consisting of:
CD – ‘Live at Hatfield. Christmas 2010’
DVD 1 – ‘Live At Hatfield. Christmas 2010’ + ‘Live At Camden Underworld. August 2010’.
DVD 2 – ‘Fizzy Water & Spikey Blankets (A Weekend In Russia. May 2010)’ + ‘Live At Hammersmith. February 2010’ + ‘Live At Summersonic, Tokyo. August 2009’.
