If you joined Enter Shikari at any of their Stop The Clocks Tour dates, since their Engine Shed, Lincoln show on December 1st 2018, you’ll have been treated to hearing their newest track; after which the tour was named. Last week Stop The Clocks was released on most streaming services and today we got the video and it is as infectious, enthralling and stunning as the song.
“2018 was the first full year in Enter Shikari’s professional career in which we didn’t release any new music,” shares, lead singer and Enter Shikari’s frontman, Rou Reynolds. “We loved how ‘The Spark’ was connecting with people and wanted to give the album its rightful breathing space. but, not wanting to be dormant, we began a new track towards the end of the year. ”
“Anyone who has seen us live recently will have heard Stop The Clocks” Reynolds explains -“It’s an upbeat post-punk pop track about the joys of human connection. When someone is open and honest about their vulnerabilities, others can connect with them, and then all of us can feel stronger and more comfortable. It conveys the relief, warmth and freeing nature of the normalisation of mental health struggles, following decades of stigmatism. A flickering flame of positivity in these difficult and regressive times.”
The video for Enter Shikari’s latest track has arrived for all to enjoy in advance of their special two set appearance at Leeds and Reading Festival 2019 later this week. The band will play unique sets on the Main stage and later a headline spot on The Pit/Lock Up stage.
