Enter Shikari released “T.I.N.A.”, the third track to be taken from the upcoming album “Nothing is True & Everything is Possible”, released on April 17th, 2020, via So Recordings.
 
Despite being one of the heavier tracks on the album “T.I.N.A.”’s rhythms and vocal processing are heavily influenced by UK garage and electronica. The track begins with a tense “Tubular Bells” synth syncopating against a chunky guitar riff, underpinned by drums that sound like they’re being beaten by the Hulk, and accompanied by a sneaky Korg M1organ bassline influenced by 90’s house.

Listen to “T.I.N.A.” here.

“Nothing is True & Everything is Possible” was produced by Enter Shikari frontman Rou Reynolds, who commented on “T.I.N.A.”: “So much of modern life is obsessed with individualism, but we’re currently being reminded that all of us on earth are part of a super-organism, a supranational collective, as we battle against COVID-19”.
 
He continued: “It’s the essence of humanity to build an infinite reality” - we have a consistent failure of imagination in our social design. Question the fundamentals of our archaic economic structure, politics or energy infrastructure and feel the wrath of the self-appointed guardians of the status quo. The defining nature of humanity is to create. Yet we’re being blinkered and stunted. "T.I.N.A.", or "There Is No Alternative" is a mantra we hear from many of those in positions of power as a way to halt any rethinking of how we organise our societies. We live in unprecedented times, the threat of catastrophic climate change as well as the current pandemic of Covid-19 prove that now is the time for big, broad and bold thinking. We believe humanity can do so much better. We need to think about what is possible. We ask everyone to join the conversation, not kill it”.

Today Enter Shikari announce an extensive European tour for Autumn / Winter 2020. This will be the band’s first headline tour since the mammoth “Stop The Clocks” Tour which ran from December 2018 until April 2019.
 
Tickets for all dates will go on sale on Friday 28th March 2020 at 10AM, here.
 
Fully aware that these are strange days in which to be announcing a tour, Rou had this to say about venturing back onto the road: “It feels like an odd time to announce touring, but the wheels were already in motion before all this stuff escalated and, well, we all need something to look forward to right now. So later this year, as some degree of normality hopefully returns, we will finally celebrate our new album properly and present some of this material live! Alexandra Palace is now a cemented and certified legendary venue for me. I have had some of the best nights of my life in this place and I plan to have another one this year. This tour will be extra special”.
