Sensuous Enemy 2012

Sensuous Enemy 2012

We have a lot to tell you about AND we have an exciting announcement! For those of you who don’t know about us, Sensuous Enemy is a female fronted electronic darkwave band that’s been around for almost a decade! We have worked hard writing, recording and performing solid music while going to school and working multiple jobs in order to support our number one passion…Music!

We started in 2004 and put out our first album “Deadly Sins”, which included six original songs and one cover that was released on Sonic Mainline label out of Madison, Wisconsin, owned and operated by Matt Fanale of the band Caustic.

In 2006 we came out with our first full length album “Fragments” with eight originals, one cover and four incredibly powerful remixes from some of the most well known bands in the EDM Industrial music genre.Fragments
The album was mixed and produced by Wade Alin of the bands The Atomica Project & Christ Analogue in Chicago and also released on Sonic Mainline label.

Then after a couple of years of continued growth and changing members we signed to a new label called Radio-Active-Music [RAM] out of Virginia Beach, Virginia, owned and operated by Laura Hofford. We released “Parity” in 2010 with three original songs and seven fabulous remixes.
SE_Parity_online_artworkIn 2011 we continued writing new songs, we designed a new light show, performed numerous shows throughout the Midwest and we delivered a powerful and exciting east coast tour.

Sirens of the SeaBy the middle of 2013 we had written nine more songs. We wrote and recorded all summer and released our single “Sirens of the Sea” this past September with five moving remixes. In one short week you’ll now be able to purchase and listen to our newest and second full length album “Voyager”, with nine original songs, mixed and produced by Wisconsonites Dan Clark of Listless Works and mastered by Eric Oehler of Submersible Studios!
We will be performing most of “Voyager” at The Frequency in downtown Madison, Wisconsin on Saturday November 16th, with our new label mates Null Device and pounding dance beats provided by DJ Siberia!

Voyager

That isn’t all though. The best news is that we recently signed with the long established, well known Nilaihah Records out of Columbus, OH,owned and operated by Kristy Venrick of the band The Azoic!! Both our single “Sirens of the Sea” and our full length album “Voyager” will be released under Nilaihah Records this month! We’re so excited to be a part of the Nilaihah team of bands and friends!! Check out our music and some of the fabulous bands currently signed to Nilaihah Records!

We look forward to performing for you in the near future. Thanks to all of our family, friends and fans and for all of your support, love and dedication. We could not have done this without YOU!

Recently, John Freriks, our programmer/guitarist, moved to Chicago to find work in his field of studies and to move on with his life in a bigger city. This venture will offer him many opportunities that he just won’t find here in small town Madison where jobs are few and people are vastly over-educated. We are truly happy for him and wish him the very best on his new path in the windy city. This does not mean that we won’t continue to write, record and perform music, it just makes it a bit more complicated.

It’s only been a few weeks and already one of the things I miss are our regularly scheduled Thursday rehearsals, the time when we would talk about songs we’re working on and ideas for our next CD, or about sound and lighting from the most recent events we attended or about the political landscape of America. It was the few moments of this particular day where I felt like all parts of my life came together and made sense, but now it feels a bit disjointed and I am struggling to figure out where we go from here.

We will continue to work together using the internet, various applications and communication tools in order to keep making music together, however, not physically being together to talk about all of it is going to be very difficult for me. I truly enjoy the intimacy and connectivity of the weekly rehearsals, getting together to chat about our lives and playing music together. Although my head knows this is a good decision for John, my heart says something entirely different.

With all the recent changes of John’s move and discussion on how we’re going to evolve Sensuous Enemy, we had to make a hard decision. Due to the direction we’re going, we felt the need to pair it down to the bare essentials in order to continue as a more electronic band with a cleaner sound.  We thought long and hard about our decision and finally made the change last month. This doesn’t mean that we won’t ever use a live drummer again, but for now, we’re going to try it without one by programming more drum tracks and having our keyboardists produce synth sounds instead. We are grateful for the time and energy Chris Wenzel gave to Sensuous Enemy and we wish him the very best in his future musical endeavors. Please wish him a good farewell.

We had a fantastic show on Saturday and really enjoyed sharing a stage and getting to hear some new music by Gentleman Loser with a special appearance by The Mad City Sister Nuns along with some really well done NIN covers by incektShotglass Sally joined us with grinding for four of our songs and Mizz Lillzz did a couple of fabulous sword belly dance routines on the back stage during the intervals between bands. Also there were absolutely delicious KUPCAKES by Kate!

There was a really good crowd with lots of energy and friends we haven’t seen in many years. We showcased three of our new songs that will be on our new album “Voyager” coming out Summer 2013, which were a smashing success! We also sold a few CD’s, made some new friends, and only came away with a few minor cuts n bruises.

Our next live show will be with Thought Thieves in Minneapolis, MN at Ground Zero with Bondage A Go Go immediately following!
