Moratorium (Broadcasts From The Interruption)

LP blue/black/splatter

Most recently dispatched: 17 September

A companion collection to the excellent 2020 album Nothing Is True And Everything Is Possible from the Kingston visitors Enter Shikari. Collecting alternative, acoustic and 'recorded at home' versions of selected tracks from their back-catalogue alongside a much-wanted release for the cover of David Bowie's classic, Heroes.

The band chose the best & most interesting from the large available selection of performances - originally created for media outlets such as Kerrang & Rock Sound in the UK, Russia’s Afisha & Snob magazines (and even a UK daytime TV slot on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch), along with special performances for 2000 Trees and Five 4 Five’s online festivals - and these have now been properly mixed by Rou Reynolds, mastered and compiled for worldwide release.

"With no live shows, and no real contact with the rest of the band, it was nice to at least be able to do some remote sessions together.

It was also interesting to develop acoustic and alternative versions of some of the new tracks. These performances went some way to filling the gaping hole in our lives!" Moratorium also includes two special solo acoustic performances recorded by Reynolds especially for the release, which see him accompanied be Bulgaria’s Sofia Session Orchestra. These include a drastically reworked version of Nothing Is True & Everything Is Possible’s lead single The Dreamer’s Hotel :

"After creating an acoustic version of The Dreamer's Hotel to play during lockdown livestreams, I began to think that this rather dulcet adaption could benefit from some orchestral parts.

I love composing and it was a joy to work with the Sofia Session Orchestra, who, as you'll hear, nailed it”.
