The outing kicks off with appearances at two Texas festivals – Never Say Never in Mission March 20 and South By So What in Grand Prairie March 21.

Cities on the routing include New Orleans, Philadelphia, New York, St. Louis, Denver, Seattle, Los Angeles and Albuquerque. Although most of the schedule is concentrated in the U.S., Enter Shikari is headed up north to play Montreal’s Club Soda April 7 and Toronto’s Virgin Mobile Mod Club.

This week the band unveiled the cartoon animated music video for “Slipshod,” which was directed and animated by Peter MacAdams, whose resume includes “Ren & Stimpy.” The tune is included as a bonus track on the iTunes deluxe version of Enter Shikari’s fourth studio album, The Mindsweep. The LP is due out Jan. 20 via Hopeless Records.
