Enter Shikari are excited to announce the release of their tour documentary “Further East”, shot in March 2019 when the band returned to Russia as part of their extensive Stop The Clocks tour, which ran from Winter 2018 and has just concluded in the U.S.
The quartet undertook an eight-date tour of Russia across a two-week period venturing beyond the traditional Moscow / St Petersburg track covering vast distances including Nizhny Novgorod in the Volga region of the country and Krasnoyarsk in Siberia.
Watch the full video below:
Filmed and edited by the band’s tour photographer/videographer Tom Pullen, the documentary offers unprecedented candid insight into not just the Team Shikari touring circus, but also a country less often represented in our “traditional” rock ’n’ roll stories.
From appearing on Russia’s prestigious Evening Urgant TV show (the Russian equivalent to The Tonight Show or Graham Norton), to large venue headline shows in St Petersburg, Moscow, and Ekaterinburg, to club shows and walking on frozen lakes in Irkutsk.
At a time when talk of Russia and its regime is so often tainted with negative connotation, we hope it serves as a timely reminder that the young people of the country are no different to those further west; with the simple desire to go out, check out a rock show, have fun and engage with the wider world.
