Formats and Editions


''Take to the Skies'' is the debut studio album by Enter Shikari. On March 25, 2007, it reached #4 in the Official UK Album Chart selling 28,000 copies in its first week. It has been released as a standard CD, a limited CD + DVD edition and a double LP version (2 x 180grm 12" vinyl) with an embossed gate fold sleeve. The 12" vinyl edition is limited to 1000 copies and also contains the standard CD.

The Album reached worldwide sales of 250,000 copies and was certified Gold in the UK, after selling over 100,000 copies.

The album contains many songs that were featured on demos, singles and EPs released in the years prior to their debut. "Sorry You're Not A Winner" was first on the band's second EP Sorry You're Not A Winner EP in 2003. It was later re-recorded in 2006 along with "OK, Time For Plan B" (which was a previously released demo in 2005) for the bands second single Sorry You're Not a Winner/OK Time for Plan B; both were re-mastered for the album. "Jonny Sniper" and "Anything Can Happen In The Next Half Hour..." were both on the band's third EP Anything Can Happen in the Next Half Hour (EP) in 2004; they were completely re-recorded for the album. A demo version of "Mothership" was previously released for the bands first single in 2006. Also "Enter Shikari", "Labyrinth", and "Return To Energiser" were released as demos from 2005-06.

The album produced two singles for "Anything Can Happen in the Next Half Hour" and "Jonny Sniper".

After the release of the album in Europe, the band spent a long period of time finding a distributor, which they would need to release the album in North America. Finally they signed to Tiny Evil Records and the album was released on October 30. - Wikipedia
