Following last month’s video for (pls) set me on fire – which perfectly set up what was to come next – Enter Shikari have shared the official follow-up for recent single It Hurts.

Yet again directed by Rou Reynolds, the frontman explains: “In typical Shikari fashion, I threw myself in at the deep end with directing, and decided to shoot two videos in one day.

“It was an incredibly intense experience, but we had a super-talented, passionate, focused team, and were able to get a great result.

“Personally, I found it rewarding to see my ideas brought to life and create a narrative connecting the two videos. I love the attention to detail that directing allowed, and the ability to bring some of the song’s themes to life in more depth.”

Both songs are taken from Shikari’s upcoming album A Kiss For The Whole World, which is due out on April 21 via SO Recordings / Ambush Reality.
