Since they formed in Coventry in early 2006, Midlands teenagers The Enemy (drummer Liam Watts, singing guitarist Tom Clarke and bassist Andy Hopkins) have achieved more in a year than most bands do in their whole career. Maybe it’s the motivation of trying to escape the boredom of life in their hometown, Coventry, but with debut album ‘We’ll Live And Die In These Towns’ heading straight to Number One and a string of increasingly fervent festival slots under their belt, now is definitely their time. If their appearances in front of a packed-out Radio1/NME Stage tent at the Carling Weekend: Reading and Leeds Festivals are anything to go by, these gigs are going to be legendary.
