Tickets are now available for Tom Clarke (The Enemy) at Rescue Rooms!
*Hi everyone, firstly thanks to everyone for an amazing festival season with TheEnemy, the shows have been amazing. Unfortunately due to some logistical problems I am having to reschedule the solo tour. This isn’t really the fault of anyone, the promoters and venues are being amazing and working with me to make sure all the shows still happen and that none get cancelled. Sometimes these things happen but the main thing is all the shows will go ahead, just a little later than planned. As soon as I have the new dates I’ll post them online.The flip side of this is some more positive news. The solo tour not happening over the next few months creates the opportunity for me to get in the studio with Liam and Andy and start working on new material for TheEnemy. I’ve hinted at this before, but can now confirm we are – all three of us – making a new Enemy record. I hope this softens the blow of the solo dates being pushed back a bit. More news on new material will be announced soon*
He’ll be joining us ahead of the release of his new album ‘The Other Side’. The new single ‘Back To The Start’ has already been well received.
Tom Clarke is best known as the former frontman for Coventry band The Enemy. They sold over 1 million records worldwide and many charting number ones. They went on to support huge bands such as The Rolling Stones, Sex Pistols and Oasis.
Since then, in 2016, Clarke drew upon his classically trained background and composed a soundtrack. Specifically for BAFTA award winning writer Geoff Thompson and Cannes Film Festival director nominee Paul Shammasian. He also owns The Empire in coventry, a 1000 capacity nightclub and music venue who have hosted the likes of The Libertines and Frank Turner.
Tom openly speaks about his battle with depression, often criticising the music industries lacklustre approach to confronting bullying. Especially in popular media and stating that the music industry is one of the few remaining workplaces which has no regulation against bullying. No safeguards for musicians who are statistically more likely to suffer with depression and anxiety and are therefore more vulnerable and susceptible to the harm bullying can cause.
