It looks like Enter Shikari are bringing their Stop The Clocks tour to North America!
Announced earlier today, the band will be hitting the road later this year to do just 12 intimate shows; their first in the United States since last year’s round of dates to support their album, The Spark.
The band’s “deliberately intimate” run is slated to kick off on September 20 in Austin, Texas and it’ll wrap up a few weeks later on October 7 in Chicago, Illinois. Tagging along with the group to act as the tour support is Can’t Swim.
Of the band’s run around North American, the band’s frontman Rou Reynolds shared:
“We felt it was wrong to close out the Stop The Clocks tours without trying to get back to North America to bring the whole ‘Spark-era’ full circle. The more cozy shows should see the kind of sweaty mayhem we need to see us off into writing the next album.”
He continued on by saying: “Gutted we can’t get over to the West Coast this time around, but commitments back home just won’t let that happen. So we hope we can make that up to our friends in California and nearby states before too long.”
