Enter Shikari
Enter Shikari
Enter Shikari are an English four-piece rock band formed in 2003 in St Albans, Hertfordshire. They are known for their crossover style incorporating post-hardcore and various heavy metal sub-genres, such as metalcore and alternative metal, with elements of various electronic genres, such as industrial, dubstep, trance, and occasionally drum and bass, creating a very distinct sound. The band is named after a boat belonging to Roughton "Rou" Reynolds' uncle, and a character in a play which he wrote before forming the band, both of which are named Shikari. Their debut album, Take to the Skies, was released on 19 March 2007 and reached No. 4 in the Official UK Album Chart. Their second album, titled Common Dreads, was released on 15 June 2009 and debuted on the UK Albums Chart at 16. Their third studio album, A Flash Flood of Colour, was released on 16 January 2012 and was positioned at the top of the UK Album Chart for almost its entire week of release, however it eventually debuted on the chart at 4. The band then spent considerable time supporting the release through the A Flash Flood of Colour World Tour, before beginning work on their fourth studio album, The Mindsweep, released on January 2015 and debuted on the UK Albums Chart at 6.
New album 'The Spark' is released September 22 2017

Milk Teeth
Milk Teeth
British punk band Milk Teeth have set aside the usual fast and loud sonic template in favor of the thick distorted guitars, downbeat but catchy melodies, and shifting dynamics of '90 grunge and indie rock. Milk Teeth hail from Stroud, Gloucestershire, England, where lead singer and bassist Becky Blomfield, guitarist and vocalist Josh Bannister, and drummer Olly Holbrook attended the same school. All three were passionate about music, and they were part of a circle of friends who often helped one another out with various projects. In early 2013, Bannister and Holbrook had been working on songs together and recorded a set of demos; the tape won the attention of guitarist Chris Webb, who turned the duo into a trio, and when Bannister invited Blomfield to join the group, they adopted the name Milk Teeth, taken from a song by the Japanese Voyeurs. Milk Teeth released a digital single, "Vanilla," in May 2013, and their first EP, Smiling Politely, appeared three months later. The group's early recordings received an enthusiastic response, and they began touring regularly throughout the U.K. and Europe. April 2015 brought a second EP, Sad Sack, and the release was successful enough that well-established American punk label Hopeless Records signed the group and gave Sad Sack an international re-release. In November 2015, Milk Teeth issued a new single, "Brickwork," as a preview of their first full-length album, Vile Child, scheduled for release on January 29, 2016. However, shortly before the album's arrival, Milk Teeth announced that Josh Bannister had left the band, and that guitarist Billy Hutton would be sitting in for him on the group's upcoming live dates in support of the album. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
