With sunburn still fading and laundry still unwashed from their stints on the 2010 Vans Warped Tour, the UK ‘s ENTER SHIKARI and Indiana ‘s HASTE THE DAY team up in October for another round trip of the United States and Canada .
The tour, which takes in a full loop of the continent over the course of six weeks, marks the end of a full 18 months of touring for Enter Shikari following the release of their second album ‘Common Dreads’. The previous year+ has seen the band completing North American tours with August Burns Red and Alesana in 2009 and touring the US with A Day To Remember (and, in return, having A Day To Remember support them on a Japanese tour) in March 2010.
Most importantly, for those who have seen Enter Shikari on these recent North American jaunts, this tour will also mark the return to the drum stool of Mr Rob Rolfe, who has been unable to play US shows with the band for over two years due to visa issues (now, finally, thankfully, resolved).
These shows will be Enter Shikari’s last US appearances before returning to the UK and starting work on their third album.
Haste The Day, on the other hand, are just beginning their latest album adventure. Their fifth album ‘Attack Of The Wolf King’ was released on Solid State Records on 29th July, the first full length release since 2008’s ‘The Dreamer’ and first to feature the band’s current line-up.
Making up the rest of the package are SLEEPING WITH SIRENS ( Orlando , FL ), Ms. WHITE ( Italy ), and LIGHTSGOBLUE (UK).
