ENTER SHIKARI - MORATORIUM (Broadcasts From The Interruption) Out of the blue, and exactly one year to the day from the release of the album Nothing Is True & Everything Is Possible, Enter Shikari release the companion collection 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 throughout 2020 / early 2021. The band chose the best & most interesting from the large available selection of performances - originally created for media outlets such as Kerrang & Rock Sound in the UK, Russia’s Afisha & 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. "With no live shows, and no real contact with the rest of the band, it was nice to at least be able to do some remote sessions together.

It was also interesting to develop acoustic and alternative versions of some of the new tracks. These performances went some way to filling the gaping hole in our lives!" Moratorium also includes two special solo acoustic performances recorded by Reynolds especially for the release, which see him accompanied be Bulgaria’s Sofia Session Orchestra. These include a drastically reworked version of Nothing Is True & Everything Is Possible’s lead single The Dreamer’s Hotel : "After creating an acoustic version of The Dreamer's Hotel to play during lockdown livestreams, I began to think that this rather dulcet adaption could benefit from some orchestral parts. I love composing and it was a joy to work with the Sofia Session Orchestra, who, as you'll hear, nailed it”.
