Great deals on musical instruments
Enter Shikari have announced a huge UK tour scheduled for April and May 2013 in the run-up to Download festival.

The band will embark on a 24-date jaunt across mainland Britain in April before moving on to Ireland in May. The shows will be intimate and outside of "major" towns.

It kicks off at Dorking Halls on April 4th and then will go on to the likes of Falmouth, Salisbury, Swansea, Kilmarnock, Inverness, Galashiels and Scunthorpe among others, before hopping over the Irish Sea to Derry, Cork and Dublin, finishing at Coventry's Kasbah on May 5th.

In a post on their website the band stated: "Most of the shows are around the 600 capacity mark so a little more 'cozy' [sic] than recent shows. The shows will largely focus on the sort of places that the band have either never been before, not been to for years, or that don't generally get shows at all."

Enter Shikari were also announced in the latest batch of bands to play Download festival and will appear on the main stage of Friday June 14th following on from Down and precluding Korn's performance.
