The Enemy have been awarded "Best Rock Act" of 2007 in today's Daily Mirror, thanks to the 3AM showbiz column. The newspaper commented on The Enemy saying:

After hot sets at Glastonbury and T In The Park, we rushed out to buy their
debut album. They say: "We're really impressed with our gong, it wasn't
This comes hot on the heals of the Daily Star awarding The Enemy runner up in it's "Album of the Year" award with Playlist saying:

Gobby? Check. Songs to spill your pint to while you bounce around to them?
Check. Surprise mid-tempo to reel in a grown-up audience?
Check. Coventry’s The
Enemy first graced the Daily Star before the ink had dried on their record deal
and a demo CD made its way into my hands.

From the early cut of 40 Days
and 40 Nights, their limited edition debut, they screamed with hit potential.
After gigging their way around the country 10 times over, the trio picked up a
loyal following and songs like Had Enough and Away From Here became festival

Indeed 2007 has been a spectacular year for Tom Clarke, Liam Watts and Andy Hopkins as they put Coventry firmly back on the music map. The Enemy spent the whole year touring and working hard to bring real music to the masses. Finally the lads get their well deserved rest over the Christmas period but the new year promises to be busy as The Enemy spend time in the studio working on their second album before jetting off to Europe to tour once again.

The Enemy have enjoyed chart success with their number one album, "We'll Live And Die In These Towns", which has remained in the UK Top 100 Album Chart since it's release in June and produced four Top 30 hits during 2007. The next single "Your Song" promises to be a bit different as The Enemy are giving fans an opportunity to remix the song and produce a B-side when the single is released in early 2008.
