Moratorium (Broadcasts From The Interruption)
Upon its release, Nothing Is True… received universal critical acclaim, gave the band their sixth UK top 10 Album Chart placing (finishing the week at #2, their highest position yet) and by end of 2020 had been chosen as Album Of The Year in the annual Kerrang Magazine reader’s poll, as well as earning the band their second Rock Sound cover in twelve months, as one of the magazines choices for Class Of 2020.
With the worldwide pandemic and resulting lockdowns hitting the UK a couple of weeks prior to the release of Nothing Is True..., all traditional promotional activity, along with any hope of live shows, was shelved. Enter Shikari looked for other avenues to keep themselves, and their fanbase, entertained.
Broadcasts From The Interruption was the umbrella moniker for the various home studio sessions and acoustic performances Enter Shikari recorded and released on YouTube and elsewhere.
The band chose the best and most interesting from the large available selection of performances - originally created for media outlets such as Kerrang and Rock Sound in the UK, Russia’s Afisha and 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..
