“Was told we were going big budget for this one. First band to play in space, they said… it’ll be amazing, they said. Load of shite.” (Rou Reynolds)
“I had the idea of making Enter Shikari the first band ever to perform in space …we didn’t have enough budget to get them there and back, so just faked the whole thing in a studio in East London. Take that Kubrick” (Kristian Young, Director)
