Enemy You

Average Rating:

Hometown: San Francisco, CA (USA)


Sometime in the late 90‚??s a handful of San Francisco kids formed Enemy You out of their love for pop–punk: a sub–genre of punk rock that had seemingly gone the way of the dustbin or (per many of the fans of this musical style) horrid misinterpretations by Blink–182, MTV and the like.

After Enemy You began writing tunes together as a band it wasn‚??t long before they received interest from Ben Weasel and his fledgling label, Panic Button Records. This of course led to their debut appearance on the four–way split dubbed Four On The Floor alongside Screeching Weasel, Teen Idols, and Moral Crux. Which was then followed up by their first full length on Lookout/Panic Button entitled Where No One Knows My Name.

Based on the this early success the band was then afforded the opportunity to play with some of punk rock‚??s most notable bands: Bouncing Souls, Lagwagon, Bad Religion, TSOL, Mad Caddies, and even a short stint on tour in support of NOFX. Things were starting to look real good for Enemy You when they then dug in for a couple months to write their second LP. Before their next full–length CD Stories Never Told was released (on Redscare Records) a clear–green, 80's–themed seven inch EP came out on Geykido Comet Records.

Enemy You has since signed with Nitro Records and will be in the studio for their third LP by 2007.
