THE Enemy have revealed details of a 14 date October UK tour.
The band formed in hometown Coventry 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 1000 copies of its limited edition 7” in less than a day and signaled only the start for The Enemy.
Their debut 2007 album ‘We’ll Live and Die in These Towns’ charted at #1 selling over 600,000 copies with big singles ‘Away From Here’ (Top 10) and ‘Had Enough’ (Top 5) gaining the band an army of diehard fans. Their second album ‘Music For The People’ was released in 2009 and charted very strongly at #2 with hit ‘Be Somebody’ continued to be used on ITV’s FA Cup coverage.
To date, the Enemy have sold over half a million tickets for their live gigs. This October sees the band take the new album Streets in the Sky across the UK on a 14 date tour. The tour follows the bands performance at the FA Cup Final on the roof of Wembley Stadium and a string of summer festivals including a performance to over 10,000 fans at T in the Park and V Festival along with a headline gig at one of the nights at Somerset House Summer Series.
