Enter Shikari’s forthcoming fourth studio album is on “another level”, according to the record’s producer.
The St Albans post-hardcore quartet finished recording the follow-up to A Flash Flood of Colour on Saturday.
It is produced by Dan Weller, who took to Twitter to describe the recording process in a series of tweets.
And he sung the praises of frontman Rou Reynolds, drummer Rob Rolfe, guitarist Rory Clewlow and bassist Chris Batten, who will play a sold-out festival warm-up gig at The Forum Hertfordshire in Hatfield later this month.
Weller (@DanWeller) tweeted: “My @ENTERSHIKARI ALBUM 4 journey is complete for now. Over to Jeremy Wheatley for mixing. What an incredible 5 weeks it has been.
“Along with being some of my best friends in music I can honestly say that @ENTERSHIKARI have been a pleasure to work with once again.
“The album is another level to what they’ve achieved before. I’m so proud. Special props to the living genius that is @RouReynolds.”
Enter Shikari released debut album Take to the Skies in 2007, and second long player Common Dreads two years later. Top five smash A Flash Flood of Colour came out in 2012.
Shikari have also released a live album – Live From Planet Earth – Bootleg Series Vol. 3 – which was recorded at one of their “homecoming” gigs at The Forum in Hatfield.
Last year the group released three singles – The Paddington Frisk, Radiate and Rat Race.
