English electro-rock outfit Enter Shikari is offering the first taste of their sophomore album "Common Dreads" (Ambush Reality) as a free download. "Antwerpen" is available now from the band's official Web site.

The band lined up three 'secret' shows for members of its mailing list in London, Hitchin and Milton Keynes in the U.K. this week. It has also confirmed several appearances at SXSW during March.

Enter Shikari return to the U.K. in April to participate in the Give It A Name Incoming 2009 gigs at London's Brixton Academy, as well as a show at Leeds Met University. The band then heads to Europe April 21 to 30.

William Morris Agency handles bookings for the U.S, while London-based Helter Skelter looks after the rest of the world. The band uses a number of promoters globally.
