Enter Shikari release new video for Anaesthetist

Enter Shikari are known for being outspoken when it comes to the subject matter of their music and they’re certainly not holding back in their latest video for Anaesthetist.

Frontman Rou Reynolds says of the subject on Anaesthetist: “We seem to have reached a stage of such capitalistic fervour, that we believe it acceptable to punish people for ill health. By charging for healthcare we act as if illness is nothing but one’s own problem, but what is the purpose and advantage of ‘civilisation’ if it is not helping the most vulnerable within society? The lottery of birth can offer us a wealth of bad luck when it comes to our health and the safety nets are being pulled in as the desire to boost profit overtakes the desire to help people.”

The new album THE MINDSWEEP from the St Albans quartet is due for release in the UK on the 19th January through the bands Ambush Reality label.
