With a book full of lyrics from and other gubbins related to their most recent album ‘The Spark’ already on the way, Enter Shikari have now released a documentary about the making of the record. Called ‘Content 2.0’, it also includes a track-by-track breakdown of the finished product.

“Normally, you’d release one of these track-by-track things in order to bolster the marketing around the release of an album”, says frontman Rou Reynolds. They didn’t do that, however, because they thought people would consider the album to be a departure from the normal Enter Shikari sound (“whatever that is”, Reynolds notes), and therefore fans should be able to interpret the music first before the band turned up with their own analysis.

“We wanted people to be comfortable with their own interpretations and perspectives of what the album is before we started crushing their dreams with our insights and expositions into the arcane technical aspects of the recording”, he says. “We hope there’s something in the documentary for rabid fan and passing-interest viewer alike”.
