Enter Shikari vocalist Rou Reynolds is no stranger to books, but now he’s releasing a new one.

Dear Future Historians (Lyrics and Exegesis of Rou Reynolds for the music of Enter Shikari 2006 – 2019) compiles both of Reynolds’ out of print novels along with some new material.

The book will also include three more track lyrics and essays plus new artwork and photos.

“I’m a strong believer that dissection and analysis of music or art does not – contrary to popular belief – diminish it or reduce its magic. As Beethoven said, “Don’t only practice your art, but force your way into its secrets; art deserves that”. I hope readers of this piece of explanatory literature will find it exciting and interesting,” Reynolds says in a statement.

The book arrives May 28 and you can pre-order it here. Along with the book’s release, Reynolds will be performing acoustic sets at exclusive signings. You can see the dates for that below.
