Take to the Skies 2nd album

Take to the Skies is the debut studio album by Enter Shikari. On March 25 2007, after its first week of release, it reached #4 in the Official UK Album Chart. 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 combines many of the songs that were featured on singles and EPs that were released in the years prior to the album's release, however they have all been rerecorded for the album. The single "Anything Can Happen in the Next Half Hour..." was the first single to be released from the album using the re-recordings.

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.
