‘The Enemies’ on track to release debut album in early 2012
US festivals lined up following year of commercial project success
Drogheda band The Enemies are on track to release their debut album by the New Year and are being lined up to play South by South West, Coachella and Lollapalooza in the US. The five-piece have been busy recording their album in between a number of other commercial projects for giants like Chevrolet and Coca Cola.
The band, who are unsigned, formed in 2003 by Ronan McQuillan and Colin O’Donoghue of ‘The Rite’ fame, began life as an acoustic duo and have grown to become one of the most popular bands in the North East. In 2011 they worked with General Motors on their Chevy Route 66 online campaign, Coca Cola on their 5by20 project, Campbell’s Soup and Carte D’Or. They have just recorded the theme tune for the animated European TV show ‘Max Adventures’ and their song ‘Free Flags Fly’ is being prepared for Chevrolet’s SuperBowl XLVI half time advert.
Band founder, Ronan McQuillan said: “It’s been an amazing year for us and we’re really looking forward to 2012. We started the year playing at the European Premiere of Colin’s movie and we’ve ended the year with a number of commercial projects behind us and our album on track. The US festival circuit will be a highlight and we hope to confirm the details really soon.”
The Enemies released their debut EP last February through HMV and iTunes. For updates and more information visit www.theenemiesmusic.com
