Enter Shikari

Story by Jack Foley

GIVE IT A Name is back but this time its incoming with two massive headliners for two massive dates this April, taking place in London and Manchester.

Enter Shikari (pictured) have just completed their follow-up to their gold selling debut album Take To The Skies, called Common Dreads, which is out early May.

The first single will be No Sleep Tonight and will be released to coincide with GIAN. Enter Shikari will be joined by The Blackout, The Academy Is, The King Blues and Emery.

Taking Back Sunday, meanwhile, are set to release new album New Again in May 2009 and are joined by new guitarist Matt Fazzi.

The past few years have been as non-stop as the music on their last album, Louder Now, which saw them play at last year’s Reading and Leeds festivals on the main stage on the same bill as Rage Against the Machine and also supporting Green Day at their two massive Milton Keynes shows.

Taking Back Sunday will be joined by Underoath, Thursday, Escape the Fate, Innerpartysystem.

The line-up shakes out like this…
