Join Radults host Brenton as he has a jolly old chinwag with Rou Reynolds, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist of Enter Shikari, ahead of their upcoming appearance on Good Things.
One of the most innovative and dedicated acts to emerge from the heavy music genres in the UK, over the last two decades, Enter Shikari have grown from high school kids in St Albans (UK) with an improbable dream, to genuine arena rockers.
Having released five full-length records, each markedly different each other, Enter Shikari are a band that truly do things on their own terms, playing what they want and saying what they want without compromise. Anyone who has attended one of the 2000 plus live shows they have played will be able to testify that the creative vision of Enter Shikari doesn't stop in the studio, it extends to the stage and beyond into other artistic realms, creating an immersive multi-sensory experience.
The career path of Enter Shikari is a perfect example of what can happen when you refuse to believe that growing up means giving up on your dreams and instead turn those dreams into your reality.
Episode topics include: artistic evolution, innovation, the bands approach to songwriting, the bands willingness to be openly political, life on the road, how they continuously reinvent their stage show, Rou's recent book Dear Future Historians, Good Things Festival and of course, Rou's very own tips for being a Radult.
