    Enter: full-blown excitement, with avant-garde UK rockers Enter Shikari are headed to Australia for a run of shows and they're bringing fellow UK groundbreakers Creeper and Aussie metallers Windwaker along for the ride. 

    This incredible tour package will hit Aussie shores in November, visiting Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide.  Speaking about the tour, Enter Shikari vocalist Rou Reynolds is understandably quite excited. 

    "Australia was the last tour we did before the pandemic started, so shows have remained fresh in my memory throughout these difficult last few years. When our tours were constantly being cancelled and the band fell dormant, it was that mad run that gave me comfort - knowing that we went out on a high. To now finally have the chance to return and build on what those shows started is exciting me no end.” 

    Since forming back in 2003, Enter Shikari have gone on to release six full-length albums while garnering ongoing industry acclaim, and multiple awards for good measure. And armed with high-octane lashings of punk, electronica and alt rock palettes alongside personal lyricism and oft-politically charged thematic, Enter Shikari continue to be one of the most magnetic forces in the modern musical landscape.

    With supports alongside The Prodigy, Linkin Park and 30 Seconds To Mars under their collective belts over the years as well as an eye-watering amount of shows on every sized stage imaginable across the globe, the band closed out 2021 with an extensive tour in the UK; a completely sold-out affair, including a fourth headline show at London's 10,000 capacity Alexandra Palace. 2022 will see Enter Shikari throw down in North America, Germany and, of course, here in Australia, with a huge assortment of big-name festival appearances also on the cards.

    While the band's most recent album, 2020's Nothing Is True & Everything Is Possible, tantalised with its "unruly genius" (NME), cohesive direction and unbridled innovation, Enter Shikari certainly aren't resting on any laurels, with some telling social media posts of late hinting that the band are holed up in the English countryside conjuring new music, some of which we might just get to here downunder in November. 

    Making their first ever trip to Australia, Southampton's Creeper are a band who crawl deeper into your soul with each listen, One of our six acts shaping Roadrunner Records bold future, Creeper initially drew together over a mutual love of hardcore, punk and glam rock stylings. A fantastical and refreshing amalgamation of lush brawn, oozing elegance and immersive storytelling, Creeper have established themselves as one of the UK's most exciting creative enterties. 

    Built on a desire to inject fantasy and flamboyancy into punk rock back in 2014, Creeper's self-titled EP released that same year instantly snapped heads, cultivating an instant fervent fan-base (aka the Creeper Cult) and leading to a double 2016 award whammy, snagging a Kerrang! Award for Best British Newcomer as well as Metal Hammer Golden Gods' Best New Band award.

    Creeper's debut full-length album Eternity, In Your Arms only heightened the feverish buzz surrounding the group, with the 2017 release debuting at #1 in the UK Rock & Metal Albums Chart, and in the top 20 of the UK Albums Chart; a rare feat for any band, let alone one on their maiden album unveiling. Over the years Creeper have continued to reinvent and refine their trademark sonic hues, leading to their 2020 Brit-pop-tinged sophomore album Sex, Death & the Infinite Void and a fifth EP, Sounds from the Void, unveiled just last year.

    Never ones to play it safe, yet ones who eternally make any listener feel simultaneously invited and emphatically charged, a Creeper live show is one equally as memorable as their music, with a touring rapsheet with Black Veil Brides, Funeral For A Friend, Misfits and countless others.

    Ascendant Wagga Wagga metallers Windwaker have built an empire over the years based around explosive innovation and scintillating contrasts. Most recently in possession of their debut full-length album Love Language, Windwaker wrestle and reflect on the unpredictable nature of love across a super-charged twelve tracks, ultimately gifting rabid chaos flexed with glistening melodics and a staggering display of the band's measured progression since first emerging back in 2017.

    Love Language was met with resounding critical acclaim, including a perfect 10/10 rating from Wall Of Sound, saying: “Windwaker have done a lot of growing over the past few years, and their hard work and creativeness has paid off tenfold. It’s almost hard to believe this is their debut album because it is so well constructed and executed. The peaks and troughs of this album are subtle perfection...if Love Language doesn’t launch their career internationally, I’ll riot."
      
    After inking a deal with Fearless Records, the band ferociously built towards their debut full-length opus, with a sturdy live show reputation also forming in their wake courtesy of previous headline tours, support slots with the likes of Beartooth and many more on the horizon.
