ENTER SHIKARI - Release The Brand New Video For "The Great Unknown"

Following the release of Enter Shikari’s critically acclaimed number 2 album ‘Nothing Is True & Everything Is Possible’ on So Recordings last week, the band will premiere the video for ‘The Great Unknown’ this Tuesday 12th May at 6pm on YouTube. The band will be online to answer fan questions before, during, and after the premiere.

‘The Great Unknown’ video was directed by POLYGON who was also responsible for the ‘The Dreamers Hotel’ and ‘Stop The Clocks’ videos, as well as recent work for Tame Impala and Bring Me The Horizon. The video was produced entirely during the lockdown period, with the band members individual performances self-shot at home and whisked to Paris to be turned into magic.

Frontman Rou Reynolds said: "'The Great Unknown' is a song about existential dread. A song about the need for new ideas and new beginnings. I’m so glad we were able to still make a video for this song, what with the current state of affairs, and I’m glad we were able to convey the emotions intrinsic to the song with this video - our state of isolation and desolation but also determination and connection. Yet again it was a great pleasure to work with Polygon, albeit remotely this time! I won’t forget taking directions from him on Skype, as I recorded my scenes in front of a homemade green-screen in my bedroom!"

Polygon himself added: "'The Great Unknown' is an invitation for viewers to dive into a futuristic and gloomy world, where high-end buildings mix with gigantic holograms. The concept of the video is to create a parallel between the state we’re all in at the moment and an ultra pessimistic vision of the world… It seems like there is no redemption nor glimmer of hope in this massive city, but even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise. I’m really happy with the result of this video and I hope people will enjoy it. It’s truly amazing working with the band and management for they’ve always been supportive of these kind of ideas and always been giving me total freedom regarding the direction and execution of what are at first silly lines on a notepad or badly drawn doodles. I’ll forever be thankful for all the opportunities the band have given me".

Enter Shikari have long been vocal supporters of the National Health Service as seen in 2015’s ‘Anaesthetist’ single, taken from the album ‘The Mindsweep’: https://youtu.be/V1OIxKYmdG0
