Post-hardcore U.K. four-piece Enter Shikari is gearing up to go on an exhaustive North American tour supporting the stateside release of its latest album, Common Dreads. The two-month outing is dubbed the Toursick tour, and it includes August Burns Red, Silverstein, and headlining band A Day to Remember.
The band, who has played festivals like Glastonbury, Coachella, and Reading/Leeds, will hit theaters throughout the U.S. and Canada during April and May before joining the Vans Warped Tour from June 24th to July 18th.
The trek begins in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida March 31st. Enter Shikari and friends will stop by Tampa and several other Southern towns before heading up the coast. After a date at the Boston House of Blues, they’ll hit Canada for a couple of days, then cover the Midwest. Continuing toward the Pacific, Enter Shikari will show Canada some more love and then tour the hell out of the left coast. In early May the band will begin heading back east and wrap things up in Orlando (count ’em, three Florida dates).
Common Dreads, Enter Shikari’s sophomore effort, was released last June but available to Americans only via digital download. Well, sort of. Beginning next month, one will be able to find a physical copy exclusively at Hot Topic. That’s right, kids — grab a Wetzel’s Pretzel and form an orderly queue. The mad dash goes down April 13th.
Meanwhile, grab your tickets here.
