The Enemy will split after completing tour dates this year.

Frontman Tom Clarke has used the Coventry Empire Facebook page to break the news, pointing to a lack of support within the music industry as a reason for the band deciding to call it a day, though he also appeared to leave the door open for more activity at some point in the future.

“Ten years ago in 2006 my two best friends and I stepped into a rehearsal room and The Enemy was born,” Clarke has said. “Over a decade we created four albums and toured them successfully around the world. For a number of reasons the dates we are announcing in 2016 will be the last time we take to the stage as The Enemy, at least for the foreseeable future.”

“As we stand on stage for the last few times on this tour, I’ll be cherishing the last fleeting moments of a decade that has shaped who we all are, bands and fans alike. We all know what we’ll be sharing.”

“Come, bring your hearts, bring your lungs and leave with our songs, take them onto the streets and into your lives and keep them alive for us forever.”

The Enemy burst into a bumper era for UK guitar bands with their number one debut album ‘We’ll Live and Die In These Towns‘ of 2007, but have since seen their commercial fortunes follow the trend of that scene in general. They released what may now prove to be their final studio album ‘It’s Automatic‘ last year.
