The Enemy: NME Awards Launch Brixton Gig

Liam Watts @ NME Awards Launch, Brixton

The Enemy performed in front of 200 excited fans during the NME Awards Launch, held at The Prince in Brixton last night (26/11/08). The Coventry trio took a break from the Welsh recording studio to be at the event hosted by NME magazine.

Tom Clarke, Andy Hopkins and Liam Watts were in high spirits as they belted out ten songs from their debut album "We'll Live And Die In These Towns" and had time for a little back stage humour with Chesney Hawkes "I Am The One And Only". The song appeared on the set list but thankfully The Enemy didn't perform the chart topping cheesy track.

The Enemy are set for a busy year themselves as they put the final touches to their follow up album and get back to their roots with smaller gig venues around the UK and Ireland. This is then followed up with a stadium tour with the mighty Oasis.

Fans reacted positively to the performance, once again singing along to the anthem tracks and soaking up the exciting atmosphere being created once again by The Enemy. Time and time again Tom, Andy and Liam have managed to ignite a room with their viberant mix of social sounds and upbeat tunes. Sending out a clear message that there will be more to come in 2009.
