The Enemy announce ‘Indie Til I Die Tour’ with The Suba

One of the biggest bands of their era, The Enemy have been on fire since reforming in 2022. That year saw them receive rapturous receptions in packed venues across the land (including three homecoming shows at the HMV Empire in Coventry and two nights at the O2 Forum Kentish Town) before spending 2023 focused on festivals from the Isle of Wight to the Shiiine On Weekender via TRNSMT and Tramlines. The verdict? “Exhilarating” (The Upcoming) and “phenomenal” (When The Horn Blows).

Now The Enemy announce details of a tour that will capture the imagination of those who adored them the first time around. They will headline the ‘Indie Til I Die’ tour in October which features two big name special guests in the shape of The Subways and The Holloways. The shows will be completed with DJ sets from Radio X duo Sunta Templeton and James Hall.

The Enemy’s Tom Clarke says, “We’re absolutely buzzing about this tour! Excited to be sharing the stage with some great bands in some of our favourite rooms around the country!”

Tickets for the tour will go on general sale HERE at 10am on Thursday 28th March.

The dates are:

4th – Edinburgh, O2 Academy
5th – Glasgow, O2 Academy
11th – Newcastle, O2 City Hall
12th – Manchester, O2 Victoria Warehouse
18th – Birmingham, O2 Academy
19th – London, O2 Academy Brixton

Still consisting of their original and only line-up – Tom Clarke (vocals/guitar), Andy Hopkins (bass) and Liam Watts (drums) – The Enemy’s 2007 debut album ‘We’ll Live And Die In These Towns’ made a phenomenal impact. Featuring the Top 10 hits and live staples ‘Had Enough’ and ‘Away From Here’, the album debuted at #1 and was certified Platinum. They released two hit records: 2009’s ‘Music For The People’ (#2) and 2012’s ‘Streets In The Sky’ (#9), plus their final album, 2015’s ‘It’s Automatic’, and played shows with the likes of Oasis, The Killers and The Rolling Stones.

The Subways were also prospering throughout that era, their youthful zest inspiring the garage-rock rush that towers through their acclaimed early albums ‘Young For Eternity’ and ‘All Or Nothing’. Their breakthrough hit and biggest moment ‘Rock & Roll Queen’ still spins on indie radio to this day. That spirit that continued to shine on last year’s ‘Uncertain Joys’, an album which XS Noise hailed as a “triumphant return.”

The charismatic rabble-rousing rush of ‘Generator’ and ‘Two Left Feet’ quickly powered The Holloways’ rise. That cocktail of unrestrained energy and indie-pop with a ramshackle punk undercurrent was further developed in two acclaimed albums, ‘So This Is Great Britain?’ and ‘No Smoke, No Mirrors’. This represents their first full tour together in thirteen years, as well as their first major shows since the tragic loss of Rob Skipper in 2014
