The Enemy are a power trio providing the best in indie rock. Loud, proud and gloriously outspoken. The charismatic Coventry champions have sold well over 1,000,000 records, produced four albums and have played countless sell out shows over the past ten years. The Enemy define everything that a band should be.
Originally from Birmingham, the band’s front Tom Clarke moved to Coventry in his youth. Teaming up with drummer Liam Watts and bassist Andy Hopkins, the band’s enigmatic swagger and sheer talent saw a meteoric rise since their 2006 start.
It is perhaps a testament to their talent that it was only one short year before the band were signed to Warner Bros. and they had released their first album We’ll Live And Die In These Towns. The album shot to Number 1 in the UK Album Charts selling over 222,000 copies in 2007 and inevitably went platinum as sales continued to rocket in the following year.
In 2008 they released their second album; Music For The People. The month preceding the albums release saw The Enemy play the Astoria in London six nights in a row and accompanying tour to promote the new records saw the band playing two sell out nights at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena.
Their third album, Streets In The Sky, came out in 2012 and was released through Cooking Vinyl.
Fourth album, It’s Automatic saw the band return to Warner and came out in 2015. The record saw the band develop in scope and sound seeing the band encompass synths and their socio-political lyrics looking to the wider world.
The Enemy, have now announced that 2016 will be the final year for the band. To celebrate their triumphant career, they will be playing a final Farewell Tour.
“It's with a heavy heart that I write this one. Ten years ago in 2006 my two best friends and I stepped into a rehearsal room and The Enemy was born. Over a decade we created four albums and toured them successfully around the world. For a number of reasons the dates we are announcing in 2016 will be the last time we take to the stage as The Enemy, at least for the foreseeable future.
" - Tom Clarke
