A VISIT from indefinable noughties tastemakers Enter Shikari is just around the corner in Llandudno.

The political firebrand four-piece are set to bring their inimitable sound to Venue Cymru as part of their Stop The Clocks tour – their biggest yet – of more intimate venues on Tuesday, January 15.

For the uninitiated, the St Albans pioneers have consistently evolved their eclectic fusion of post hardcore and metal core, techno, trance and electronica – known as electronic core - over their 17 year career, resulting in the incredibly ambitious fifth album the Spark in 2015.

Arguably their most mainstream effort to date,the band have nevertheless remained doggedly committed to their core punk ethos, evident in return to smaller venues after their ascendancy to the stadium rock fraternity in recent years.

Lead vocalist Rou Reynolds said: “Our most recent UK tours have been of the eight or nine shows in arenas and ‘big sheds’ variety, so we consciously wanted to switch it up a bit going into 2019.

“Enter Shikari have always kept dipping back into more intimate venues over the years.”

As part and parcel with their desire to play directly to the people, the band are also motivated by the wider political climate of 2019.

Reynolds adds: “It’s no secret that austerity and the looming potential disaster of Brexit have seen people having to be a lot more careful with how they spend their money.

“With things being what they are right now, it doesn’t seem fair for only those who can afford the travel to a major city to be able to see a show.”

Adding their voices to the show are Brighton prog-rockers Black Peaks and Canadian garage rock trio Palaye Royale.

To join the band of the people, head to Venue Cymru on Tuesday, January 15 at 8pm.

Tickets are £27, available from venuecymru.co.uk or by calling 01492 872000.
