Enter Shikari reveal video for new track ‘(pls) set me on fire’

They’ll play the relatively smaller confines of a Bristol club this June.

Ahead of the release of their new album ‘A Kiss For The Whole World’ on 21st April on SO Recordings / Ambush Reality, Enter Shikari are sharing the video for lead single ‘(pls) set me on fire’.

“I’ve not always been happy with our previous music videos, so figured I’d put my money where my mouth was and direct these ones myself,” Rou Reynolds says. “I wanted the ‘(pls) set me on fire’ video to feel minimal and uncomplicated, which is actually the polar opposite of the next video.

“So, given that the main function of this video is really just to set up the next one, I think it came out f****** great.”

Speaking about the single, he adds, “Honestly, I thought I was f*****. I’ve never felt so detached from my soul, my purpose, my f****** spirit. I didn’t write music for almost two years. The longest I’d gone before that was two weeks. I was broken. It’s almost as if my brain had asked: ‘What is the point in music if it cannot be shared? What is the point in writing music if it’s not to be experienced with others?’ and then promptly switched itself off. ‘(pls) set me on fire’ grew out of that desperation. This song is a projectile vomit of positive energy. Every emotion trapped inside me for two years, finally set free.”
