Since forming in 2008, Toronto punks The New Enemy have played countless shows in Canada and the Unites States, sharing stages with numerous punk legends, along with appearances at NXNE, CBGB Festival, Pouzza Fest and more. They've also received exceptionally positive reviews for their full-length album and two previous EPs. 2014 finds The New Enemy releasing their third EP, "Evolve To Destroy", with production help from Juno nominated Steve Rizun (Comeback Kid, Fucked Up). Putting their money where their mouth is and staying true to their socio/political lyrics, The New Enemy donates all digital download revenues to charity. For the new EP, they've teamed up with Music 4 Cancer to help raise funds for cancer research. The entire EP (along with a bonus 88 Fingers Louie cover) can be downloaded from their Bandcamp page. Limited edition 7" vinyl is also available for purchase.
