The Enemy's Tom Clarke has revealed he plans to sell his house in the country so that he can be closer to a Greggs bakery.

The 'Away From Here' singer says he is trying to sell up his country pad as he finds it far too difficult trying to track down a sausage roll, according to The Sun.

He told them: "I'm selling the farm. I grew up in Birmingham and Coventry then bought a house in the middle of nowhere. It’s beautiful, I’ve watched rabbits being born and seen red kites and buzzards flying, but I can’t hack it."

He added:

I want a Greggs within walking distance so I can go and buy a sausage roll when I want one.

Recently, The Enemy's bassist Andy Hopkins told NME that the band all felt their second album was "too political", but that they have returned to their roots for the lyrical themes on new album 'Streets In The Sky'.

He said: "We might have gone a bit too political on the second album. It wasn't meant to be, but I think it ended up going that way. This album is like our first one in that it's inspired by our lives and the lives of the people around us. It's about us, and our mates and what goes on. It's got lots of different moods on there though."

The band, confirmed two homecoming gigs at Coventry's Cathedral Ruins on May 21 and 22 earlier this month. They will follow the Coventry dates with a short UK tour, playing three further shows.

These begin at Manchester Academy on May 23, before moving on to London's O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire on May 24 and Glasgow Barrowlands on May 25. The band are also confirmed to appear at this summer's Live At Leeds festival and at both legs of August's V Festival.

The Enemy will play:

Coventry Cathedral Ruins (May 21, 22)
Manchester Academy (23)
O2 Shepherds Bush Empire (24)
Glasgow Barrowlands (25)
