Enter Shikari‘s new album, ‘A Flash Flood of Colour,’ is slated for a Jan. 17 release via a new label, Hopeless Records. The inventive electro-spiked post-hardcore band accomplished quite a bit on their first two albums, 2007′s ‘Take to the Skies’ and 2009′s ‘Common Dreads,’ playing most of the A-level festivals from Australia’s Big Day Out, UK’s Leeds, Reading, Download and Glastonbury, Germany’s Rock am Ring, and North America’s Warped.
The new album was produced in Thailand and England, by Dan Weller, formerly of the band SikTh. The first single from the record is a track called ‘Sssnake Pit.’ Noisecreep hasn’t had a chance to hear the album, so Karen Bliss interviewed bassist Chris Batten to find out a bit more.
I’ve never known a band to record an album in Thailand. Why did you end up going there and what were the facilities like?
