Comprised of former members of Solid Gold, G.A.Y.N.G.S., and Pictures of Then, the music of Minneapolis based ENEMY PLANES drifts effortlessly between melancholy and menace, hypnotic and hysteric, heartache and euphoria. A stirring blend of haunting vocals, dense instrumentation, and driving beats yield a "tripnotic" sound that is distinctly their own.
Conceived in 2012 somewhere between Minneapolis, MN and Lexington, KY, ENEMY PLANES took to the road early on and hasn’t looked back, maintaining an ambitious touring schedule worldwide. The band spent most of 2013 and 2014 on the road supporting legendary underground act, the Meat Puppets, while beginning the process of working closely with producer Duane Lundy to record three full length albums worth of material.
In 2015 the band found themselves besting 13,000 other bands worldwide in the Hard Rock Rising Global Band Competition held in Barcelona, Spain. Their grand prize win set in motion a whirlwind of show opportunities allowing the band to share the stage with such acts as Kings of Leon, Lenny Kravitz, Cold War Kids, Matt and Kim and more.
In 2016, ENEMY PLANES released their long awaited debut album, Beta Lowdown on Rock the Cause Records. While writing and recording Beta Lowdown, ENEMY PLANES also created a series of music videos including a video for "We Want Blood", directed by Tobias Stretch, known for his work on Radiohead’s “Weird Fishes”. They are currently working on a trilogy of albums, with Beta Lowdown being the first in the series.
