Return To Energiser Tour: Enter Shikari + Hacktivist + The Marmozets + Neck Deep + Baby Godzilla
Enter Shikari round off a solid 18 months of touring the world promoting their third album 'A Flash Flood Of Colour' with the 'Return To Energiser 2013' tour that sees them playing 24 intimate shows in towns that they have either not played for a long time, never played before, or that never really get rock shows on their doorstep.
Known for their incendiary live performances (which have earned them two Kerrang! 'Best Live Band' Awards and also saw NME.com users vote the band 'Best Band Of Reading / Leeds 2013'), and despite playing to over 30,000 people in the UK in December alone last year, the band wanted to take to the stages of Britain one more time before hanging up their touring boots in favour of the rehearsal room and studio to work on what will become album #4 in 2014.
Post-hardcore four-piece with electronic-trance influences. Hailing from St Albans, the band have become known for their relentless touring and their innovative sound, fusing hardcore-metal with dance music. Since forming in school back in 2003, Enter Shikari have played well over 1000 live shows and sold out numerous prestigious venues worldwide such as London Astoria, Brixton Academy, Hammersmith Apollo, New York's Irving Plaza and LA's Roxy. '...one of the most exciting, brutal and explosive live bands on Britain's screamo / post hardcore scene.' - LastFm
Enter Shikari tour dates
Milton Keynes five-piece Hacktivist take their name from a term used to describe activists who, through computers, spread political messages. Primarily known as a metal band who blend their heavy sounds with rap, strangely frontman J Hurley came from a grime background and had absolutely no knowledge of the metal scene. The end result is a sound containing all the monstrous riffs and heavy beats you would expect from a metal gig, but combined with the energy and vibes of a grime or hip-hop show. People are already saying Hacktivist have the same dance/rock crossover potential as that of the Prodigy.
Hacktivist tour dates
A young five piece alt-rock band from West Yorkshire.
Kerrang! Magazine 4/5 - 'The most exciting young band in Britain. A breathless, bold and brilliant effort from a band with a seemingly bottomless reserve of ideas'
Rock Sound 9/10 - 'One of the most exciting new sounds to come out of the UK'
Front Magazine 5/5 - 'Standing head and shoulders at the top of the math-core game'
PUNKTASTIC.com 4.5/5 - 'Vexed sees the band crank the math rock elements of their sound way beyond its predecessor, and it's another indicator of just how far they're able to push boundaries'
Ourzone Magazine 9/10 - 'Incalculably more intense. The musicianship has surpassed expectations of what was next for the Bradford five piece.'
Marmozets tour dates
A five piece pop-punk band from Wales. Vocalist Ben Barlow, guitarists Lloyd Roberts and Matt West, bassist Fil Thorpe-Evans and drummer Dani Washington are a set of lads who describe themselves as down-to-earth who ‘write songs that we like and talk about things that mean something to us.’ With an electric, ambitious and lively attitude, the lads have created fast, catchy and enjoyable songs. Neck Deep recently signed a wide album deal with Hopeless Records, home to bands such as All Time Low, Yellowcard, We Are The In Crowd.
Neck Deep tour dates
"The brutal sound of bluesy hardcore screams, mammoth guitar riffs and general extreme noise is gloriously beautiful" – Tom Hadfield, Platform Magazine.
Heck (formerly Baby Godzilla) are a bunch of overly-energetic, slouching, blues-hunched over-underachievers from Nottingham who specialise in their own unique blend of loud, sweaty, voracious and shouty psycho-blues and are already known for their extraordinarily intense live shows.
