After 7 weeks, our contest offering you the chance to win an exclusive Polaroid from the band has come to an end. Congrats to all of you who have won. And if you haven’t, you’ll be in for quite a treat anyway when the boxset “A Journey Beyond Ourselves” will reach your doorstep! Thank you for embracing the project the way you have.
“A Story About Between Illness and Migration” is a 200+ pages assembled from Alex H. Foster’s personal notes, poetry, journal entries, recording notes and other annotations. It features an exclusive song-by-song interview with Alex, Ben and Sef and includes new and never released before pictures from the studios, behind the scenes from the videoclip productions, it also includes the perspective on the journey of every band member, as well as a short essay by Jeff Beaulieu.
Through images and texts, the book will bring you deep down the intimacy of the album in its most glorious moments and its most challenging hardships. The book invites you to take part in all the different moments that the album is made of, from the HQ, all the way to Australia, going all over Europe, Asia and North America.
A bittersweet, sometimes gut-wrenching, sometimes peaceful life voyage filled with passion and let go, “A Journey Beyond Ourselves” is a look back at these past 5 years that have shaped Your Favorite Enemies as individuals and as a band.
These books have arrived at the HQ today, and are only waiting to be wrapped in their own canvas and slipped into their protective box before being shipped your way. This book is the very first one we do, and it covers the last 5 years of the band, since we started working on the album “Between Illness and Migration”. It is our story, a story that we shared with you and that you are a part of.
The book is available in limited quantity only, and copies are going away fast! Get yours before it’s completely sold out!

Before releasing their 2 new pedals to the general market, Orange Amps decided to send them to Sef so he could try them, use them, and review them. And this is exactly what Sef did – but maybe not in the way that Orange Amps would have imagined! Of course, the video features Sef’s signature guest appearance!
Our exclusive polaroids contest is coming to an end, and this week is the last one you’ll have a chance to win 1 picture from the band. 1 has been taken backstage in Berlin, while the other one has been taken on a beach in Taiwan where the band was set to co-headline the Ho Hai Yan Festival.
Winners of these 2 pictures will be announced next Wednesday, August 30.
