THE HIGH LIFE & THE PROFILE
The Enemies are a five piece band from Drogheda Co. Louth. Formed in 2003 The Enemies released their debut EP in March 2011 which served as a taster for their self funded first album on track and due for release later this year.
The Enemies are an exciting and energetic pop/rock act that not only play but perform live. The band pride themselves on their spontaneity live and are renowned for their lengthy medleys.
The band were invited to attend South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas in 2012 where they performed at the Mofilm Award Ceremony at Thurman Mansion in Driftwood, among several other showcase gigs. The Band have already plans in place for their return to Texas next year.
Made up of a team of experienced and established musicians and skilled professional songwriters, the band aim to impress, and leave you with at least one of their crafty melodies stuck in you head as you dance off into the night.
The Band features actor Colin O’Donoghue on guitar. Colin publicised The Enemies globally whilst promoting his recent movie The Rite (also starring Sir Anthony Hopkins). Colin and the band performed at the wrap party in Budapest and at the European Premiere of the film last year. Colin is currently playing the role of Capt. Hook in ABC’s TV series ‘Once Upon A Time’.
Though the band are unsigned The Enemies have created a name for themselves through their relentless hard work which has earned them the admiration of car giants GM who commissioned the band to record numerous tracks for their “Chevy route 66” online campaign. Follow this with the bands work on the music for Coca-Cola’s 5BY20 project and their professionalism becomes very evident indeed.
Their song ‘Sustain’ will feature on Direct TV’s 3D surfing documentary series “Gone Until December” in the US this year and they’ve also co-written and recorded the theme tune for 2012 animated global TV show “Max Adventures”, and more recently they recorded the music for major ice-cream brand Cornetto’s new global advert which was inspired by their own song “Dark Light”.
