Premiered at their homecoming gig in Coventry last Thursday night, ”ËGimme The Sign’ is a perfect taste of what is to come from the bands new album ”ËStreets In The Sky’ released this Spring. Produced by The Bronx’s Joby J. Ford, ”ËGimme The Sign’ is quite simply, a huge anthem. Much heavier than The Enemy’s earlier sound whilst also leaning towards the anthemic sound of their first album ”ËWe’ll Live and Die in These Towns’, ”ËGimme The Sign’ couples Tom Clarke’s signature chanting vocals with strong, forceful drums and heavily confident guitars. It is catchy, instant and huge and is a massive live track just made for crowd surfing. And that’s exactly what it created in Coventry on Thursday night.
The Enemy 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”Â in less than a day and signaled only the start for The Enemy. Their debut 2007 album ”ËWe’ll Live and Die in These Towns’ charted at #1 selling over 600,000 copies with big singles ”ËAway From Here’ (Top 10) and ”ËHad Enough’ (Top 5) gaining the band an army of diehard fans. Their second album ”ËMusic For The People’ was released in 2009 and charted very strongly at #2 with hit ”ËBe Somebody’ continued to be used on ITV’s FA Cup coverage.
To date, the band have sold over half a million tickets for their live gigs and along with their own headline dates and festival appearances, they have performed with the likes of Oasis, Kasabian, Manic Street Preachers and Stereophonics. The Enemy performed a homecoming show at S7VEN nightclub in Coventry last week to a packed out, ecstatic crowd who managed to get a ticket to the tiny 350 capacity gig (which sold out in seconds). They have just announced that they will also be performing four UK tour dates this May where they will be premiering further album tracks. Full tour dates are as follows:
Sat 05 Leeds Live at Leeds
Wed 23 Manchester Academy
Thu 24 London Shepherds Bush Empire
Fri 25 Glasgow ABC
