This summer sees two of the UK's finest acts on the industrial scene hitting the road together! Be My Enemy and AlterRed are playing six shows across the UK in June 2015.BE MY ENEMY:Phil Barry of CUBANATE is back doing what he does best: heavy guitar riffs, banging beats and squelching acidic synth basslines. With the added twist, this time around, of Phil himself taking on the vocal duties, welcome to Phil Barry's new band - Be My Enemy.Be My Enemy's debut album 'This Is The New Wave', was 10 tracks of techno-metal every bit as brutal as the riot-gear-clad police that adorn the cover. Analogue rave synth lines and break beats battle with chunky metal guitars to evoke the finest moments of other British dance/rock crossover acts like PITCHSHIFTER and PRODIGY: all topped with the sneering Lydon-esque vocal delivery of Barry. Phil is joined on stage by accomplished musician Keef Baker on bass and Steve & Deb Alton from System:FX on guitar and drums respectively
.In Spring 2014, Be My Enemy released their second album entitled 'The Enemy Within' which received great critical acclaim and made dance floors move at shows all across England. This is punk, rave, metal all put through the blender and spat out with unadulterated venom.ALTERRED:With an array of recognizable influences from Nine Inch Nails, David Bowie, Jane's Addiction and IAMX, the end result is a unique melting-pot of sound and imagery. AlterRed have made a dramatic and impressive impact on a wide variety of audiences with their flamboyant live shows. Self medicated madness is their remit. Love, lust, lunacy and loss are their tales to tell. Music to lose your mind to!
They will release their 4th studio album 'In the Land of the Blind...' on the 7th August 2015 on WTII Records. This album is a departure from the band's electro-cabaret sound, focussing far more on their rock-industrial and electro-rock influences. Bigger, harder, faster and darker!
