ENTER SHIKARI have surprised their fans by unexpectedly releasing a brand new song, entitled Hoodwinker.
Hoodwinker received its worldwide debut play on Daniel P Carter‘s Radio 1 Rock Show on BBC, with the song becoming available for streaming and downloading shortly after.
Check out the music video for Hoodwinker, which sees the band abandoned in the middle of the sea with nothing but their instruments:
The making of Hoodwinker began when the St. Albans four-piece were also working on their other impromptu release, Redshift, back in January. ENTER SHIKARI then finished the recording of Hoodwinker during the summer festival period.
ENTER SHIKARI frontman Rou Reynolds spoke about Hoodwinker:
“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.”
