"Destabilise" is a single from St. Albans post-hardcore band Enter Shikari, released as an iTunes exclusive download on 26 October 2010 and as a limited coloured 7" Vinyl on 29 November 2010 in the UK and Europe. The track was recorded in the summer of 2010 to be released as a "one off single". After recording the track, the band went onto numerous tours including Warped Tour and a tour of Australia. After Warped Tour, the band recorded the music video for the track before their Australian tour. The band performed the track at multiple festivals and UK Shows including the Reading and Leeds Festivals and at their Preston show, both of which they posted on their YouTube channel. On 21 October 2010 the band announced the release date for the single on their website and that there would be a limited 7" Vinyl featuring the track and live favourite Motherstep/Mothership recorded at the Hammersmith Apollo in February. Only 500 where originally said to be manufactured, then a few days later with the release of their new website the band stated that they "kept a few of these back for when we opened the new store" which makes 1000 manufactured altogether. Motherstep/Mothership was released in the United States as a standalone single on 17 December 2010.

The song was eventually included on the band's third studio album A Flash Flood of Colour as a bonus track on the UK and Ireland iTunes edition.
