The Mindsweep: Hospitalised will be released on October 30, 2015 onHopeless Records in the US and is a collaboration between ENTER SHIKARI and London-based HOSPITAL RECORDS, who, since 1996, have become one of the world’s foremost labels in drum & bass music.
The Mindsweep: Hospitalised sees every track on Enter Shikari‘s UK Top Ten album The Mindsweep – released in January this year – reimagined by some of the most respected and cutting edge artists working in d’n’b today; including the likes of Metrik, S.P.Y, Danny Byrd, London Elektricity (a coup in itself, with L.E’s take on “Dear Future Historians” being their first remix in nearly three years), Keeno and more.

As vocalist Rou Reynolds explains: “We’ve always been big on our B-sides and remixes. With every album, we’ve always tried to get a load of drum & bass remixes done. Hospital-wise, we did one with High Contrastaround the time of our second album Common Dreads, for instance. While we were making The Mindsweep we started the idea of having a consolidated collection of just d’n’b tracks. Because The Mindsweep is such a varied album we just thought it’d be quite interesting to see what a drum & bass take on each track would be, and Hospital’s the one label that I personally have been into forever.”
The Mindsweep: Hospitalised will be available on CD, 2 x coloured vinyl LP, and download. It is available for pre-order from today from:smarturl.it/entershikarimerch and will be available in all record stores, online retailers and streaming services from October 30th.
The Mindsweep: Hospitalised arrives off the back of a busy summer festival season that has, thus far, included a headline slot at Nass Festival, second stage headline slot at Download Festival, as well as two headline appearances at Glastonbury (John Peel Stage and Billy Bragg’s Leftfield Stage on Friday and Saturday, respectively) in the UK alone.
The band have also recently announced their first ever UK Arena tour. February 2016 sees them hitting seven large venues across the country, finishing up at London’s 10,000-capacity Alexandra Palace. Outspoken U.S pop-punk quintet The Wonder Years join them as special guests.
