The Enemy, the Coventry trio who are about to release their third album have returned with a stomping new single, ‘Gimme The Sign’ which has been produced by LA band The Bronx who have turned the band into a punk rock machine.

If you ever loved Stiff Little Fingers, Generation X, Manic Street preachers and the angry impassioned end of anthemic rushing punk rock then procede to the Soundcloud.

more stuff o the band on their press release below..



The Enemy will release their new single ”ËœGimme The Sign’ tonight as a free download to fans through their Facebook and website after the first play on Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 show at 7.30pm this evening. /

Premiered at their homecoming gig in Coventry last Thursday night, ”ËœGimme The Sign’ is a perfect taste of what is to come from the bands new album ”ËœStreets In The Sky’ released this Spring. Produced by The Bronx’s Joby J. Ford, ”ËœGimme 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 ”ËœWe’ll Live and Die in These Towns’, ”ËœGimme 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” in less than a day and signaled only the start for The Enemy. Their debut 2007 album ”ËœWe’ll Live and Die in These Towns’ charted at #1 selling over 600,000 copies with big singles ”ËœAway From Here’ (Top 10) and ”ËœHad Enough’ (Top 5) gaining the band an army of diehard fans. Their second album ”ËœMusic For The People’ was released in 2009 and charted very strongly at #2 with hit ”ËœBe 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:

May 2012
Sat 05 Leeds Live at Leeds
Wed 23 Manchester Academy
Thu 24 London Shepherds Bush Empire
Fri 25 Glasgow ABC

  1. Corporate greed is always in the mind of others… always trying to turn something noble and pure into something selfishly driven at the expense of the majority’s quintessence through clandestine demeanor…

  2. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  3. Your style is unique compared to other folks I’ve read stuff from. Thanks for posting when you’ve got the opportunity, Guess I will just book mark this page.

  11. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
