Your Favorite Enemies is a Canadian alternative rock band that was formed in Varennes in 2006 by Alex Foster (vocals), Jeff Beaulieu (guitar), Sef (guitar), Ben Lemelin (bass), Miss Isabel (vocals and keyboard), and Charles "Moose" Allicie (drums). The band is now established in Drummondville, in a former Catholic church that they have transformed into a studio. The members of the band have remained the same since the beginning.
The band members have been influenced by bands such as The Clash, The Ramones, The Cure, Noir Désir, and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, and has a sound that ranges from alternative rock, to shoegazer, new prog, and noise rock.
In 2008, Billboard Magazine named Your Favorite Enemies one of five Canadian acts to watch for that year. Since their inception, the band has toured and played in Europe (England, Scotland, France, Germany), Japan, Australia, China, Taiwan, Canada and the United States. Faithful to their DIY beliefs, they have always done everything by themselves, from the recording to the touring.
On May 20, 2014, the band released the Canadian edition of their album Between Illness And Migration. The album peaked at number 2 in the iTunes chart on the day of its release, between Coldplay and The Black Keys. In the first week of its release, the album was also 6th-top-selling artists in Canadian charts, which granted the band the title of "best-selling artist of the week" at HMV and Archambault. With expansive guitar textures and an intricate, art-rock production gloss, paired with a strong sociopolitical lyrical slant, this album is said to be the band’s most potent offering yet.
