The Enemy Overview


The Enemy are an English rock band formed in Coventry in 2006, signed to Warner Music Group (UK). In June 2007, The Enemy played twice at Glastonbury Festival, first in the 'Guardian Lounge' on Saturday and then the much larger 'Other Stage' on Sunday. They also headlined on the Saturday night of T in the Park in the 'Futures' tent on 7 July 2007. The band's debut album "We'll Live and Die in These Towns" (2007) went straight to Number 1 in the UK Albums chart on release. In the United States they are marketed as The Enemy UK. Their song "Be Somebody" is currently used for the title sequence of ITV's FA Cup football coverage.
