Enter Shikari “The Spark”

The current headliner state of affairs would declare A Day To Remember, Bring Me The Horizon, and Parkway Drive as next to take the throne and the peaks of festival rosters. While promoters continue to exhaust the classics, it’s only a matter of time before one of the three acts takes over headliner capacity and inherits the crown of a classic band to grace their appearance for timeless performances throughout the years to come. There’s still a hope for the other angle to take over, where Five Finger Death Punch, Avenged Sevenfold, and All Thats Remains will follow suit, if they haven’t already. Whatever the case may be and however things unfold, there will always be a b-side of acts that compete for the same space but will have to make some much needed changes to catapult their status.
     That’s where Enter Shikari lines up next to Beartooth, Neck Deep, and Of Mice & Men, in expecting a glimmer of mercy and a shot at success in drifting away from their foundational aggro sound. Just like Thrice and Poison The Well before them, Enter Shikari knew a day would come when they would have to shed their electrocore tendencies and tune to a more digestible sound. While their DNA is still very much intact, the commercial carrot dangling is highly evident. For those new to the band, it may be a bit weird to start backwards from here.
