English four-piece Enter Shikari first cut their teeth on a thriving DIY punk scene, putting on their own shows out of necessity. Being one of the first influential bands to combine electronica with blistering heavy rock, the band continue to reinforce their stamp on the music world by being extreme, diverse and dynamic.

Enter Shikari live at Alexandra Palace will be available November 4. Recorded at the legendary 9000 capacity London venue in February 2016, the album contains the full set (minus ‘Juggernauts’, due to technical issues that rendered it unusable).
