T-Minus… til Enter Shikari’s THE SPARK blasts off

1024 576 Blonde and Crossbones | Juliet Huddy

UK post-punk/electronic/just seriously ridiculously great band Enter Shikari have been teasing fans (and lucky recipients of said fans re-tweets, Facebook posts, Snapchat updates, etc) but in mere hours, the tease turns real.  Their much talked about latest album “THE SPARK” hits Spotify shortly.  This, their 5th full-length studio release has generated major buzz, for many reasons; one being commercial sensibility.  Songs…

EN GARDE: ROUSING ROCK REBELS ENTER SHIKARI MAKING US NERVOUS WITH ELECTRIFYING STATEMENT

638 426 Blonde and Crossbones | Juliet Huddy

This ain’t your mama’s Enter Shikari.  No sir, in this latest video from their upcoming album “THE SPARK”, “Rabble Rouser” takes the UK band to a whole new level, and many say, a whole new direction.   An intended glaring departure from their much loved debut album “TAKE TO THE SKIES”, Shikari has kept Rou Reynolds firebrand protest vibe intact…

ENTER SHIKARI’S PUNK-INFUSED SUMMER SONG OUT — NOW!

1000 1000 Blonde and Crossbones | Juliet Huddy

It’s fairly clear to anyone who knows me, has seen this site, follows me on social media, etc. etc. that I’m just a wee bit slightly obsessed with this band out of the UK.   It’s hard to describe them — they’re quite chameleon-like; each new release carries hints of the status quo, but with a big smack of ‘shakeup’,…

I saw these guys opening for Enter Shikari/Bring Me The Horizon back on Halloween at the O2 Arena in London.  I’m thrilled I actually made it into the venue, given the fact O2’s in the Greenwich area – a hot point for my Brit History obsession.  Luckily, my passion for music overtook aforementioned obsession that night. Within the first thirty…

ONE TO WATCH: CYPHER16 FROM WEBSTER HALL 3/8/17

150 150 Blonde and Crossbones | Juliet Huddy

I checked these guys out, when I found out they’d be opening for Sweden’s Amaranthe — and was really impressed.  Adding to their appeal is lead singer Jack Doolan.  Like his UK brethren, (and one of my prized recent-ish discoveries) Enter Shikari‘s dazzling frontman Rou Reynolds, Doolan packs a brilliant lyrical punch.   And like Reynolds, he’s thoughtful, unassuming and quite…

ENTER SHIKARI ‘TAKE TO THE SKIES’ AND WORLDWIDE STAGES

150 150 Blonde and Crossbones | Juliet Huddy

If you’re just getting to know me (Juliet Huddy aka the Blonde) you might not know of my obsession.  Last May ’16, I interviewed the lead singer of a band from the UK at the RockNDerby festival up in Schaghticoke, NY.  It was the last day of the festival, he was my last interview. A few hours later, while most…
