Dear Friends, Family & Future Historians.

Unfortunately, despite attempts to look at this from every angle possible for alternatives, and after consulting with promoters, management and even a selection of fans, the current situation forces us into making the difficult decision to cancel the proposed Nothing Is True & Everything Is Possible album launch shows for the UK, New York and Moscow.
While the shows are impossible to play in April / May for the obvious logistical – and, more importantly, health-related – reasons, the overall uncertainty makes rescheduling those shows for any other time virtually impossible too.

We’re very sorry.

We were looking forward to playing shows again, and were excited to be able to play some of the new album tracks for you. Hopefully sometime soon we can find a way to be able to take another approach to this. For fans that had the Ticket Access Pass / Fan Club access for priority ticket access for the UK album launch shows, we will say this :

*VERY SOON* we will be announcing proper tour dates for later in 2020. We have been reassured that your Ticket Access Pass / Fan Club membership will be carried over to allow you to access a 48 hour special presale for those dates. You will also be placed on a dedicated mailing list for special advance notification of any intimate / festival warm-up shows that may happen this summer (as there is every probability that we will have to warm-up after not playing shows for a while).
We realise this is not ideal, but nothing about this situation is. For Hamburg and Paris shows, we have a little more positive  news along with the disappointment.
While we have to postpone the shows from April, we / our promoters
ARE working on rescheduled shows for later into the summer to align
with European festival dates.
Tickets for the April shows will remain valid for the summer replacement
shows, and we’ll have details of them very shortly once 100% confirmed.
New York / Moscow – As we don’t know when travel bans will be lifted
over the next couple of months+, the only thing we can do is regretfully
cancel your shows and say that refunds are available for tickets from
where you purchased from.

We can only apologise, and see you sometime later in the year for
proper tour shows, hopefully.
Again, we are very sorry that this is the position we find ourselves in, but
the circumstances are beyond our control.
Ultimately, what is vital is that everyone does all they can to protect their
own health and the health of those around them.
Nothing is more important as that.
We hope everyone is keeping well, and that your families are staying
safe and healthy.
Keep an eye out for elderly neighbours who’re on their own, and also
remember that independent local businesses will be hurting during the
coming weeks, so support them when you can.
and big-up the NHS workers; working hard for the sake of the country’s
health in these difficult times.
thank you,
Rou, Rob, Chris & Rory.
PS; If you have any related questions that are not covered in the above,
please contact [email protected] cheers.


You can’t trust your own eyes
And you only hear lies
Our future’s been denied
And there’s nowhere to hide
Now that nothing is true
And everything is possible

It was all leading to this. The definitive Enter Shikari album ‘Nothing Is True & Everything Is Possible’, released 17 April 2020 through So Recordings. First single ‘{ The Dreamers Hotel }’ premiered as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record last night and is available here. The band will play 5 special intimate UK shows to launch the album. Details below.

‘Nothing Is True & Everything Is Possible’ is produced to dazzling effect by renowned frontman and visionary Rou Reynolds, from a band at the peak of their creative output with a unique story, underlining their 13-year succession as a pioneering and uncompromising musical force. This is an album about possibility, the unnerving irony of endless possibility, the band asking themselves what they can achieve as the world questions “what is possible?”.
’Nothing Is True & Everything Is Possible’ is a lucid soundtrack for a new decade, with a poignant social commentary that expertly leads the listener from pure pop to scorching punk-rock fury, through four-to-the-floor beats and beautiful orchestral composition. ’Waltzing Off The Face Of The Earth’ (I. Crescendo) and (II. Plangevole) draws you into the madness of modern life, “you can’t trust your own eyes, and you only hear lies, our future’s been denied and there’s nowhere to hide now that nothing is true and everything is possible.” ‘Elegy For Extinction’ is a classical gem recorded in Prague with the City Of Prague Symphony Orchestra, and arranged by renowned film & television soundtrack composer George Fenton (Gandhi, Blue Planet, Planet Earth, Groundhog Day, My Name Is Joe), and the first single ‘{ The Dreamers Hotel }’ a lavishly produced anthem.

The inspiration for ’Nothing Is True & Everything Is Possible’ came while putting together their book ‘Dear Future Historians’ published by Faber, which charts the lyrical creativity of the band. Reynolds comments:

“Looking at all we had achieved, gave us a better sense of perspective and confidence……. What are we capable of? What is possible? These questions are part of Shikari’s DNA. But now we reflect a society where possibility itself has drifted from something of optimistic opportunity to something quite frightening.”

Rou Reynolds is post-punk’s renaissance man; a musician, producer, composer, published author, and campaigner, who has spent much of the last few years as an advocate of mental health charities following his well-documented struggles on Enter Shikari’s critically acclaimed album

‘The Spark’ (2017). Alongside Reynolds stands the vital Rob Rolfe (drums), Chris Batten (bass) and Rory Clewlow (guitar) making up one of the UK’s truly great British bands, almost uniquely the same four friends that started Enter Shikari at school,16 years later still united by a shared vision.
The last decade has seen Enter Shikari increase their stature year on year, a rare career story which has taken them to 4 Top 10 albums, millions of streams, huge sell out world tours (most recently in Russia and two American), as well as multiple awards, last year crowned Best British Band by Rocksound, with Best Album from Kerrang! for ‘The Spark’ at 2018’s Awards.

Tickets will be available to those who pre-order the album from the online band store and to members of the band’s Future Historians fan club.
