Enter Shikari have shared a new single.

Titled Stop The Clocks, the inspiring, breezy alt-pop song has been a part of the St. Albans quartet's live show since December 2018 and is released via So Recordings ahead of their four special sets at the Reading and Leeds festivals next week. Vocalist Rou Reynolds said:

"2018 was the first full year in Enter Shikari’s professional career in which we didn’t release any new music. We loved how 'The Spark' was connecting with people and wanted to give the album its rightful breathing space. but, not wanting to be dormant, we began a new track towards the end of the year.

"Anyone who has seen us live recently will have heard Stop The Clocks - it’s an upbeat post-punk pop track about the joys of human connection. When someone is open and honest about their vulnerabilities, others can connect with them, and then all of us can feel stronger and more comfortable.

"It conveys the relief, warmth and freeing nature of the normalisation of mental health struggles, following decades of stigmatism. A flickering flame of positivity in these difficult and regressive times."

The band continue to tour behind their fifth album, 'The Spark', which was released in September 2017. Following their festival appearances, they'll embark on a North American tour this autumn.
