The Enemy prepare ‘punky’ second album

Band speak about upcoming album sessions

The Enemy have revealed that their forthcoming second album will be “punky” and “aggressive”, and that they have 30 songs ready to record.

Drummer Liam Watts told the Daily Star that the album would be rougher around the edges than the Coventry band’s 2007 debut, ‘We’ll Live And Die In These Towns’.

“Just because guitar music has taken a dip in the charts doesn’t mean we’re going to start experimenting with electro or anything,” he said. “We’re not going to change what we do best.

“We’ve got about 30 new tracks that we need to fine-tune before going into the studio. The next album is going to be just as diverse but less polished.

“We wanted to get a raw, punkier feel to it, closer to the sound you hear when we play live.”
