Enter Shikari drops new single “Bloodshot”

Author Hernan Osuna - 9.3.2023

British post-hardcore band Enter Shikari has released “Bloodshot”, the third single from their upcoming LP “A Kiss For The Whole World”, out on April 21 via SO Recordings/Ambush Reality. The song follows the previous tasters of the new album, “(pls) set me on fire” and “It Hurts”.

“Bloodshot” was inspired by frontman Rou Reynolds’ questioning of society and the media. The musician explained: “Bloodshot is about how hard it is to find truth and how easy it is to stop thinking for yourself and simply repeat your ‘team’s’ mantras. Every day, I seem to be asking myself ‘Is this article biased?’, ‘Is this claim true?’…’ Am I being manipulated? Provoked? Radicalised by my own tribe?’”

Sharing his views on the negative impact of social media, Reynolds continued: “Everyone’s so fucking angry with everyone else and it’s exhausting. It seems like social media’s main purpose these days is to hypnotize us to hate.”
