In December 2016 Enemies released their third and final album entitled Valuables via Topshelf Records. Valuables documents a turbulent time for the band — intensive writing, recording and touring, coupled with a lack of shared vision, led to a decision that harmony in ending is ultimately more valuable than discord in continuing.
Today the band have premiered a poignant mini-documentary with Upset, which was filmed at their last ever show in December. Speaking about the video the band said, “It’s been four months since the night we laid Enemies to rest. Fortunately we enlisted the help of a pair of friends to film the show that night, without any brief or idea of outcome. What arrived in our inboxes last week perfectly captures all the love that we felt in the room that cold December night. We’re sharing it for everybody who was there to celebrate our ten years of existence, and for all those who couldn’t make it.”
Formed in 2007, Enemies, an experimental/indie-rock four-piece from Kilcoole, Ireland, have spent almost a decade writing, recording and producing their own records. Having travelled the world with tours in Asia, North America and Europe, the band has continuously developed their sound, remaining incredibly distinct within Ireland’s experimental music scene. Enemies surprise their listeners with every release by constantly tweaking and perfecting their own brand of intelligent, pop-infused rock. Not content to fit neatly into any particular category or sub-genre, Enemies have continued to evolve their sound into something that goes beyond the labels of math or post-rock.
