The Summer Series At Somerset House in London is the festival for people who don't like mud or leaving cities and love nice, stately surroundings. Q is previewing all of this year's headliners with a series of interviews and today it's the turn of The Enemy who play the courtyard on 13 July with All The Young. Head to Somersethouse.org.uk for more details including the latest ticket news.
Describe your 'sound' in three words:
"Buy... the... album..."
How will you be travelling to the gig?
"Although Andy vowed never to drive in London again, most probably by car. Straight down M40/ A40 with a stop at either Oxford or Beaconsfield services for some grub. Congestion charge?"
What can we expect from your set outside in the London air at Somerset House?
"You can expect a whole new bunch of new tunes! We're buzzing off the new album and playing as much of it as possible. Along with all the other songs, we're playing our longest sets yet."
Is there anything you've got planned for the Somerset House show you can tell us about?
"Backing dancers, pyrotechnics and a chocolate fountain... We've really pushed the boat out."
Can you tell us about the acts on the bill with you?
"All The Young are playing with us that night, heard a lot of good things about them so looking forward to seeing what they have to offer."
What one song of yours should we listen to get us in the mood for you show?
"Gimme The Sign. Have a listen and you'll defo be fired up for the gig. Can't wait!
The Royal Society used to be housed at Somerset House - what one scientific invention would transform your life and why?
"Not really scientific but a luxury item invention I'd really like in my life is an all over body dryer in the shower. Shower goes off, hot air comes on. Its 2012, I'm standing there cold, trying not to wipe my face and arse with the same bit of towel. Dyson or Drangon's Den get on this now!"
Where's your favourite place in London?
"Had lots of good times in loads of places all across London over the years, but at the minute the Westfield in Shepherd's Bush seems to have its own gravitational pull. Always end-up there!"
