Enemy You was a punk rock band from San Francisco, California that formed in 1997.

Biography[edit]

Prior to their formation, David Jones, the main songwriter in Enemy You, recorded several releases with his band After School Special on Mutant Pop Records. After AFS broke up, Enemy You was formed and began rehearsing together. After Enemy You began writing tunes together as a band it wasn’t long before they received interest from Ben Weasel and his fledgling label, Panic Button Records. This led to their debut appearance on the four-way split dubbed Four On The Floor alongside Screeching Weasel, Teen Idols and Moral Crux. This was followed by their debut album Where No One Knows My Name. Based on the album's success the band was asked to open for a number of notable punk bands including, Bouncing Souls, Lagwagon, Bad Religion, T.S.O.L., Mad Caddies, and NOFX. Before releasing their second full-length album, Stories Never Told, the band decided to release an 80s-themed seven inch EP that came out on Geykido Comet Records. Enemy You has since signed with Nitro Records.[citation needed] Their third studio album, Fade Away, was released as an iTunes Store exclusive on December 2, 2008, after being shelved for a few years.[citation needed]

David Jones committed suicide in March 2015.[1]
