Version 13

There are at least two bands called Enemies:
1. A post-rock band from Ireland
2. A hardcore band from Finland

1. Enemies formed in the summer of 2007 in the village of Kilcoole, County Wicklow, Ireland which has been a epicentre for DIY independent music in Ireland over the last few years with bands like Adebisi Shank, Kidd Blunt and Heathers first forging their sound in the area.

In Spring 2008, encouraged by that burgeoning local scene, Enemies released their debut EP ‘Alpha Waves’ which led to two Japanese labels Machu Picchu Industries and stiff slack picking up the band for releases. A two-week tour of Japan followed in which they played sold-out shows in Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya and Kyoto.

Back closer to home, the band played gigs in the UK and Ireland on bills with bands like And So I Watch You From Afar, Bats, Not Squares, Marvins Revolt and Blakfish. The quartet followed their debut EP with a free double-A side single.

In June 2010, Enemies released their debut LP. Released by Richter Collective in the UK & Ireland and Stiff Slack in Japan, ‘We’ve Been Talking’ features pressings of the band’s own unique take on instrumental rock, one which is nuanced yet clear cut, melodic yet ferocious and energetic yet emotive.

2. Finland’s Enemies formed in September 2011 and self-released their first full-length release Framing Choices To Silence Our Voices on July 2012, after just ten months of playing together. Their sound is influenced by a wide range of hardcore and metal subgenres, ranging from crust, grind, sludge and black metal to the more melodic varieties of hardcore. The result is best described as aggressive music.
