We're playing a special charity Shikari Sound System DJ Set next month as part of an all-day fundraiser in support of The Grand Appeal, the Bristol Children's Hospital Charity for our friends at Uppercut Deluxe and House of Vans London alongside Slaves, Professor Green and Disclosure.
not long now til the #StopTheClocks Tour 2019 kicks off.
a few Sold Out banners up already and a few more to join very soon
(Brixton / Cambridge / Norwich / Leeds we suspect have only about 20-40 tickets each left. hard to get proper updates across the holiday season though).
courtesy of us, and our Tom Pullen Photographer (that's his full legal name), short recap videos of the first leg of the tour.
remaining tickets for the next stint in UK, Europe and beyond; http://www.entershikari.com/shows
Pleased to announce the unveiling of the twin live releases from the 2017 tours!
Each album will be released for downloading / streaming via all digital outlets, and also as special limited edition Ambush Reality vinyl editions from entershikari.com/store. the initial release of both albums being 2000 copies in total, with each of those available in two colourway variants limited to 1000 each.
(or 4000 albums in total, split across two shows and four colourways. confused yet? imagine what it was like having to organise manufacture of this stuff).
