"The Uplifting Sound" Interviews

1. Bring us back to that day

About Interview #1

What made this concert in Shanghai a life-changing moment? The members of Your Favorite Enemies explain in this first interview of a series of 5.

Sleepless nights, early mornings, overcrowded trains were a daily reality for Your Favorite Enemies when they embarked on their first China tour in 2011. "The Rising Youth of the Dragon's Land" was a "do-or-die" for the band, and Alex even approached the 17-dates-in-21-days tour as a farewell tour.
