Enter Shikari sign new partnership with So Recordings as global business takes to the skies12 August 2019 - Press release
Enter Shikari are excited to announce they have entered into partnership with independent London based label So Recordings, part of the Silva Screen Music Group.
In the past two years since the release of their chart topping fifth album ‘The Spark’ Enter Shikari have seen a dramatic change in their worldwide business, becoming a truly global act who were looking for a partner to capitalise on the success and take it to the next level.
Their comprehensive live strategy has seen them grow to become one of the UK’s biggest rock exports taking their acclaimed live show as part of ‘The Spark’ campaign to tens of thousands of fans across the world on their longest tour ever. In late September Enter Shikari return to North America for their East Coast tour, with shows already selling out.
Ian Johnsen, head of 30 Century Management, who has managed the band from their inception over 10 years ago commented:
"It was a tough decision for us all, to choose to leave our friends at PIAS. But once we had resolved to make the leap, one name kept coming to the fore from the pack of suitors displaying themselves before us. As a team we spotted in Adam / So a kindred spirit in terms of ethos, drive and sense of humour, and the shared passion to see where Enter Shikari could go next as they begin the next stage of their career. So Recordings possesses the "slightly wayward Camden-based indie label” atmosphere that’s been my natural home since before i can remember, but our coupling with The Orchard as worldwide distribution partner gives us the comfort and clout of a top-class global network to further support and grow the band’s successful worldwide live career. All of us at Team Enter Shikari are excited to see what the future holds with our new family”.
Adam Greenup, Director of So Recordings commented:
"Twelve years ago I heard Enter Shikari's debut album ‘Take To The Skies’ and was immediately enthralled by that wondrous blend of hardcore and electronica. They sounded and still do completely unique and I've been an ardent fan ever since. The chance to sign them for So was a bolt from the blue. I'm still breathless that our ever-expanding label will be taking on a band that define Indie in its truest sense, authentic, trail-blazing and angry. Welcome to our NW1 tribe."
This year the pioneering St Albans quartet return to the studio to start work on their sixth anticipated album.
Enter Shikari have come a long way since their inception 10 years ago, but their principles remain the same - promoting equality, fairness and unity wherever they go.
