ENEMY REMAINS, Featuring Original FATES WARNING Drummer Steve Zimmerman, to Release New Album in January

Global Music Award-winning heavy metal group ENEMY REMAINS was formed in 2005 by original Fates Warning drummer, Steve Zimmerman, and guitarist Tommy Blardo. By 2014 – after releasing their first full-length album, Two Faces Two Minds, sharing the stage with rock luminaries such as Alice Cooper, Queensrÿche and Heaven & Hell, being the first local artist invited to perform at Hartford, CT’s new 20,000 capacity stadium, XL Center, and having their song “Live For Today” featured on Rock Band for Xbox – the band had solidified themselves as a talent to be reckoned with in the northeastern US.


After a brief hiatus last year – allowing Zimmerman to re-join the original Fates Warning line-up reunion celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Awaken The Guardian, and for Blardo to develop his nationally-recognized digital radio station “Metal Fortress Radio” – ENEMY REMAINS is back with the addition of new vocalist Frank Morin and guitarist Scott Kadish, formerly of End Time Illusion.


ENEMY REMAINS will release their brand new album, No Faith In Humanity, on January 20, 2017. The album features mastering from Chris “Zeuss” Harris (Rob Zombie, Queensrÿche, Hatebreed). You can get a taste of the new album by checking out their latest music video for the title track, “No Faith In Humanity” (watch below). The track features Joey Conception (Armageddon, Dead By Wednesday) on guitars, and Jeff Curtis (Obsession & StikPin) on bass.

Pre-orders will be available soon via all major online music retailers.


No Faith In Humanity sees ENEMY REMAINS experimenting with a more aggressive and melodic style than ever before. Guitarist Tommy Blardo states, “I think our fans are going to be very surprised with the new direction of the band. On this album, we’re very focused on vocal melodies and driving songwriting, while still finding room for those anthem-like choruses. Don’t worry though, being driven by Steve, we’re definitely keeping the progressive sound we’ve always been known for. We worked really hard on the new album and we’re excited to share it with our fans.”


No Faith In Humanity track listing:
1. Colony
2. Trust in No One
3. Divided by Hate (feat. Nick Bellmore [Toxic Holocaust, Jasta, Kingdom of Sorrow])
4. Civilization
5. No Faith in Humanity (feat. Joey Conception [Armageddon, Dead By Wednesday] & Jeff Curtis [Obsession & StikPin])

In anticipation of the upcoming album release, ENEMY REMAINS will perform their first local event of 2017 on January 13 at Toad’s Place in New Haven, CT. The band will perform as part of a two-day fest, also featuring Alcoholica (classic Metallica tribute from CT with all original line up feat. Kai Blackwood, Ross Ragusa, Ron Celentano, & Opus Lawrence), Sworn Enemy, Dead By Wednesday, Revenge Against God, The Shape and Devil Inside.
