Genre-busting quartet return to shake the joint
Genre-defying St Albans band Enter Shikari have announced that they are returning to Cornwall to play at Falmouth's Princess Pavilion in April, as part of their UK tour.
With a sound that incorporates rock and metal elements, with splashes of dubstep, trance, and drum and bass, it is both impossible and undesirable to pigeonhole this band.
While electronic input has become more prominent, lyrically, they continue to tackle political, social and scientific issues. The high-energy quartet are known for their incendiary live shows – they won the people's vote for best live performance at last year's Reading and Leeds Festival. In spite of such accolades, the band still tread their own path, directing their own destinies by keeping in house control of both management and recording. Their last show in Cornwall sold out in record time.
Enter Shikari play Princess Pavilion, Falmouth on Monday, April 8. Tickets go on sale from 9am today from See Tickets 0871 2200260 www.seetickets.com or from the Princess Pavilion box office on 01326 211222.

Adam shares songs from his debut LP on home turf
Singer songwriter and guitarist Adam Isaac struck a chord with TV viewers when he won through to the live final stage of vocal talent competition The Voice last year, coached by the legendary Sir Tom Jones. The Devon 29-year-old is now spreading his wings, sharing the songs from his debut album Train Tracks – a sparkling collection drawing on influences like Muse, Radiohead and Jeff Buckley. "The sound I was after was British singer songwriter with a rocky feel," says Adam. Bingo!
Adam Isaac appears at the Lemon Grove on the Exeter University campus on Friday, January 25. Tickets are £6 on the door, or £5 in advance from www.exeterboxoffice.com.
