Album: Single Release Only (2016)
  • This standalone single finds Enter Shikari attacking religion. Frontman Rou Reynolds said:

    "It is Enter Shikari angrily calling out your God as an imposter. Which I'm afraid he is. I know you thought all the others were imposters and yours was in fact the real one, but I'm afraid he is a phoney too. We have clear evidence of false paperwork and forged documents. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news."

    Reynolds added: "Please enjoy this piece of angry music though. I hope its frustration and righteous indignation will go some way to dampening the annoying news."
  • The song is an anomaly rather than a sign of things to come. Reynolds explained to NME: "We recorded it at the same time as our previous single, 'Redshift' and it's a completely different sound and vibe from that. It's just a track that's a bit of fun, every now and then it's good to throw these one off tracks out there that don't have to represent anything larger and can push the boat out a bit more."
