Enemies // 'Valuables' Out Now

Today we released the final album from Enemies – a band who we have had the joy of working with and are sad to see go. This being said, Valuables is the perfect swansong record which The Line of Best Fit called, "a sinewy collection of guitar-led gold, with flickering licks and soothing vocals brewed together."

Buy/stream Valuables through any of these outlets:

Enemies Announce First US Dates

Admittedly, we want Enemies to stay state-side a lot longer than just five days in the northeast, but after scheduling an unreal world tour spanning Ireland, UK, Europe, Asia and the US, it just wasn't in the cards this time around. If you're in the northeast, be sure to check these out as most of 'em are free shows!

Enemies / toe release day!

Two of our favorite bands and two of our favorite records, ever — released on the same day! Enemies' Embark, Embrace is an instant classic and toe's The Book About My Idle Plot On a Vague Anxiety is a completely unreal classic record. They're both out today and both bands will be coming to the US soon to support their respective releases. Below are details on where you can pick up or listen to each record, along with an update on the vinyl production of each. Thanks!

toeThe Book About My Idle Plot On a Vague Anxiety

Vinyl update: the records are in, LP jackets are shipped to us and will be in hand this week, LP inserts will be in our hands in two weeks. This album will be shipping out the first week of September.

Enemies - Embark, Embrace

Vinyl update: LP jackets and LP inserts are in, test presses have been delayed (we were told we'd have them weeks ago and still don't; we're not sure why. Kinda getting the runaround here and it's a bummer) so we'll keep you posted on this one via email. We'll be looking to rush production on these once tests are approved. At best, this will be shipping out in mid-september.

Topshelf // Enemies

So, so, so stoked to announce this right now, you guys! We'll be working with Kilcoole, Ireland's Enemies to release their new full length record Embark, Embrace on vinyl in the US (it's brilliant).

In the spirit of DIY, Embark, Embrace was recorded and visually designed by the band themselves, with engineering handled by a close friend, James Eager of The Hive Studios. The album will be the first release on the band's own label, Heavyweight Records with Topshelf handling everything in the US.

The title Embark, Embrace comes from the bands decision to set aside careers & college degrees and focus on touring as much as possible — an opportunity that has not been available to the band until now. Enemies are just back from a three week tour of Europe and plans to tour Asia & America are already under way.

The band recently made "Executive Cut" free to download from their bandcamp site. Details for the album are below:

Tracklist:

We'll have pre-order info soon, but for now, give the guys a follow on Facebook & Twitter and have a listen on their bandcamp.
