Enter Shikari frontman Rou Reynolds releases ‘Nourishment’ EP through his solo project Rout to raise funds and awareness of his favourite charity ActionAid. The EP will launch on the 25 August at the ActionAid tent at Reading Festival with a secret DJ set, where Alt-J, The View and Huw Stephens will also perform over the weekend. The EP will be released on Tuesday 28 August, available as a download from Enter Shikari’s website in exchange for a minimum donation of £1 to ActionAid.
The EP contains samples of songs recorded in witch camps in Ghana: makeshift camps in which women accused of witchcraft are forced to spend years away from their families and without access to adequate food, water, shelter and sanitation.
A video promoting the EP, featuring footage from ActionAid’s programme work, and of Enter Shikari’s explosive DJ set for the charity at last year’s Reading Festival, will be released today via the Enter Shikari and ActionAid websites.
