Under The Gun recently sat down with Aaron Gillespie (The Almost) to discuss the band's upcoming new album.
From The InterviewNo. I mean, I love his records and I kind of want to go back and do a record with Aaron (Sprinkle) again. After you’ve used a producer for a certain amount of time, you should switch just to– You know, it’s like going to the same restaurant over and over again, and getting the same thing. Every once in a while, you kind of want to get something different just to try it. You know what I mean? So that’s what we did.

Enter Shikari have released a statement regarding yesterday's For Today incident.
StatementYesterday, the guitarist from ‘christian metalcore’ band For Today (a band Enter Shikari have previous toured the US alongside) made a series of offensive tweets of his thoughts on the ‘sin’ of homosexuality. such statements should not be allowed to pass without being commented upon and having a light shone on them, and – thankfully – a lot of artists and journalists have spoken out against his comments. Rou wanted to share his own thoughts….

Like most sane people I was completely knocked for six by this statement from… no, not a mentally deranged ageing goofball politician, or a fundamentalist...

About the SongIn light of recent displays of intolerance, we are releasing the first song off this new record earlier than anticipated. "Ignorance Is Bliss" is our stance as supporters of equal rights. We believe there is no excuse (religious or other) to alienate any person or group.
