Coventry band The Enemy have announced details of a new UK tour and the release of their second album. Tom Clarke, Andy Hopkins and Liam Watts will be hitting the road in March and April 2009 for the 22 date tour.

Although the second album title has yet to be revealed, The Enemy confirmed that the tour will feature new songs from the album. The hotly anticipated follow up album to 'We'll Live And Die In These Towns' will be released to coincide with the tour.

The Enemy bassist, Andy Hopkins revealed that the band had over 30 songs to choose from for the new album and continued to write even more. Fans have already heard 'Sing When You're In Love (Sing When You're Out Of Love)' at various live performances and Andy gave further revelations for the new album when he said, "We've got another song we're hoping to put on the album called Don't Break The Red Tape which we played at Reading and wanted to play at Leeds but we ran out of time. That one is a more or less definite to get on the album."

Tom Clarke spoke about the upcoming album saying, "We’re preparing to record our second album in October/November and coz I already have both the album title and 99% of the tunes down I’m going through loads of artwork ideas."

The tour is taking The Enemy back to their core roots in smaller venues, which allow them to get closer to the fans. Some have questioned why The Enemy will not be playing their home city, Coventry this time. Tom answered that question by telling fans, "Its just because in Cov we have two venue sizes 1000 and 8000. 1000 is too small and denies most people the chance to see us and 8000 is just too big for what we wanna do on this tour. Loved playing the Ricoh (stadium) those nights In fact was the best couple of nights of my life but I want to go back to venues of 2 to 3 thousand on this tour. So back to Brum (Birmingham) for a couple of nights."
