Arguably the best band to come out of Coventry since The Beat, The Enemy have announced a Kent date on their much anticipated UK tour.
The indie trio will head to Leas Cliff Hall in Folkestone in October off of the back of their third and atest album Streets in the Sky
The groups new single, Like A Dancer, is due to be released on July 16 and has already been described by music mag NME as “Full of new vim and back to their roots in the rawest of the ways.”
The Enemy was formed in 2006 by three friends; Andy Hopkins (25, bass), Liam Watts (24, drums) and Tom Clarke (24, vocals/guitar). Their first single 40 days, 40 nights sold out all 1,000 copies of its limited edition 7” in less than a day and signalled only the start of a new era of Coventry’s music scene.
Their debut 2007 album We’ll Live and Die in These Towns charted at Number One selling more than 600,000 copies with big singles Away From Here and Had Enough gaining the band top 10 hits and an army of diehard fans.
Their second album Music For the People was released in 2009 and charted very strongly at number two with hit Be Somebody continuing to be used on ITV’s FA Cup coverage.
