The Enemy announce fourth album ‘It’s Automatic’ and UK tour dates

The LP follows on from 2012's 'Streets In The Sky'

The Enemy announce new album ‘It’s Automatic’, their fourth album to date.

Following on from 2012’s ‘Streets In The Sky’, the Coventry band will release the LP via Warner Records on October 9.

Speaking of the record, the band’s frontman Tom Clarke said in a press release: “We’ve been working on it for a long time. It’s a fucking great record. It was difficult to make but not in a bad way. To people who are still living in 2007 it’ll be a shock but to us it’s a natural progression.”


Clarke continued: “I sat Andy [Hopkins, bassist] down and said, ‘Mate, I don’t wanna make another Enemy record. I’m bored. We’ve nailed what we do, I wanna go and do solo stuff and make music like the music I listen to.’ And he said, ‘So do I.’ So we decided to take a leap of faith together.”

“The songs are some of the best I’ve ever written,” he added.


The band have also announced a UK tour for November and December. They will play dates in London, Leeds, Manchester, Sheffield and other cities.

Tickets go on pre-sale at 9am on Wednesday (July 8) and general sale on Friday (July 10).
