ENEMY ALLIANCE is quite a new band mainly based in Malmo, in the very south of Sweden.
It all started back in 2005, as an idea shared by Daniel and Rodrigo, who had been talking about doing a project together for some time. At this point they were playing in separate bands, Venerea and Satanic Surfers respectively.
Both these bands have been among the most active and longest running of the Swedish melodic punk scene of the early 90's.
The actual band first took shape in January 2006 when Daniel, Fredrik and Rodrigo started rehearsing.
The plan was to play straight up energetic and sincere, melodic punk/hardcore with political/personal lyrics.
A few months later Mike and Flygare joined in and all the pieces started to fall into place.
Mike who had recently moved to the UK was later replaced by Stefan on bass. Stefan also plays in local melodic punk band, Atlas Losing Grip.
With the demise of Satanic Surfers and the decision of putting Venerea on hold, everyone agreed that Enemy Alliance would be the main focus.
So for everyone who thought this was just a side-project, think again.
The bands first release will be a split CD with long-time friends THE INDECISION ALARM (3/4 ex-ADHESIVE). In support of this release the bands will do a a co-headline tour through Europe in August/September.
Musically the band stands were Satanic Surfers left off, but with a bit more hardcore oriented feel to it.
However, the fresh start, allowing the members to throw in a lot more of their various musical influences will soon become clear to the listeners.
At the moment ENEMY ALLIANCE is working on new material for an upcoming full length album for early 2008.
