“The Revolution” succeeds largely because For The Foxes are uninhibited enough to explore different shades of the pop palette”- Alternative Press
Hailing from Barnegat, New Jersey, For The Foxes are ready to unleash their emotional pop- rock songs with the masses. Their debut EP “The Revolution” has already created a great buzz around the band, receiving 3.5/ 4 stars from Alternative Press magazine. As lead singer Nick Dungo explains; “It took us a while to figure out where we wanted to take the sound of this band, but every second was worth it. To us, “The Revolution” couldn’t be a more perfect starting point for what’s to come. These songs organically represent us as people, and we’ve never felt more comfortable in our own skin”.
With their much-anticipated headlining tour kicking off this week (they play Boston’s Paradise Rock Club tomorrow night), UK’s electro-punk-rockersENTER SHIKARIhave released a remix EP for the single "Arguing With Thermometers."Available on iTunes for $2.99 at http://hopel.es/HaF9Uq, the EP contains three remixes and the album version from their critically-acclaimed and chart-topping latest album A Flash Flood of Colour on Hopeless Records. From the dubstep/techno remix by UK’s Alex Calver (né Calvertron) to the breakbeat/dubstep remix by Glasgow’s Taz Buckfasterto the industrial-leaning deconstruction by Japan’s Goth-Trad, the EP reimagines the songs through the eyes of three of the biggest progressive underground DJs impacting the scene today.
Consciously changing the way multi-band tours are constructed, Enter Shikari are taking a much more generous and fair approach and bringing only two other bands, Letliveand At the Skylines, along for the ride with each band receiving a more expansive set than normal package tours (dates below). “The more eagle-eyed amongst you may have noticed that this tour is made up of a three-band-bill. Believe us, this is deliberate,” said the band previously in a combined statement. “It has long been the belief in Enter Shikari camp that North American audiences have been trained, like customers at a bad diner, to believe that a large full plate makes up for tasteless food. While nobody here thinks that one tour will reverse the trend, we’re at least going to give it a go. Instead of cramming what they have to say into 25 minute sets with ten minutes on either side to get their gear on and offstage, each band will be given time to spread their wings, safe in the knowledge that all their onstage ducks are in line.”
A Flash Flood of Colour debuted on UK’s Official Album Chart at #1 and their corresponding tour is on its way to sell out over 18,000 tickets across only six shows in advance of its March 17th kick off. Over here in the US, the album debuted at #4 Top Rock Albums (#42 overall albums) on iTunes and was voted byAlternative Pressas "Most Anticipated" and made good on that promise by landing a 4.5 stars (out of five), eliciting the praise, “it’s a musically adventurous (and surprisingly catchy) album, but the real reason to listen to it is to let Reynolds stimulate your sense beyond the mosh pit.” Not to be outdone, UK’s music tome NME hailed, “This rage against the machine could well be the four-piece’s defining statement.” SPINlikened the album as “If the Streets’ Mike Skinner chugged drugs at a rave and tried to save the world with metal.”
Enter Shikariis Rou Reynolds(vocals / electronics), Rory Clewlow(guitar / backing vocals), Chris Batten(bass / vocals), and Rob Rolfe(drums). A Flash Flood of Colour was released on January 17, 2012via Hopeless Records and is currently on sale at iTunesfor $5.99 for the standard version (http://hopel.es/HOtUhH) and $6.99 for the deluxe edition (http://hopel.es/H8Vrrl).
