This past weekend Enter Shikari shocked fans with an unexpected drop of a brand new track and video called “Hoodwinker”, premiered via BBC Radio 1’s Rock Show. Initial recording of the track was started at the same time as January’s one-off “Redshift” single, then completed during free time between summer festival performances.
On the subject of “Hoodwinker”, frontman Rou Reynolds had this to say:
“Every now and then, outside of album releases and their attendant “campaigns”, it’s nice to release a song into the wild, out-of-the-blue. To bowl it full force at the faces of the general public without prior warning. “Hoodwinker” is the current incoming projectile. It is Enter Shikari angrily calling out your God as an imposter… which I’m afraid he is. I know you thought all the others were imposters and yours was, in fact, the real one, but I’m afraid he is a phoney too. We have clear evidence of false paperwork and forged documents. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Please enjoy this piece of angry music though. I hope its frustration and righteous indignation will go some way to dampening the annoying news.”
