Enemies will play their first Dublin headline gig in two years in Whelan’s on February 23rd with Croupier and Spies before heading off on a European tour.
Expect to hear new material from the soon to be released follow up to We’ve Been Talking.
Enemies formed in the summer of 2007 within a thriving Do-It-Yourself music scene in Kilcoole, Co. Wicklow. In Spring 2008, Enemies released their debut EP ‘Alpha Waves’ which led to Japanese labels Machu Picchu Industries and Stiff Slack Records, picking up the band for releases. A two-week tour of Japan followed in which the band played sold-out shows in Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya and Kyoto.
In June 2010, Enemies released their debut LP ‘We’ve Been Talking’ on extremely reputable indie labels Richter Collective (IRL) and Stiff Slack Records (Japan). ‘We’ve Been Talking’ features pressings of the band’s own unique take on instrumental rock, one which is nuanced yet clear cut, melodic yet ferocious and energetic yet emotive. The band spent the following two years touring ‘We’ve Been Talking’ throughout Europe and Japan.
After well over a year of heavy-duty songwriting, Enemies recently finished recording their sophomore album, scheduled for release this coming Spring. To celebrate, the band are embarking on an extensive European tour throughout February and March, showcasing material from one of this year’s most eagerly anticipated records.
