Enigma takes on the UK!

"I have been proven that hard work finally pays off" - James, Enigma.

Update (02/06/2013) Following the win of MMG's Battle of the Bands East of England final, Enigma are ready to tour the UK as part of MMG's Hijack event along with the bands own headline shows thrown in aswel. Click here to download the tour poster.

It's been a long road for Enigma thus far, but through hard work many hurdles and no small amount of talent the guys have "Battled" around the Norfolk and Suffolk area with many amazing local artists to make it through to the UK final of MMG's Battle of the Bands!

After a wild tale and not nearly being able to play the final, Enigma hit the stage and shocked even themselves with the win.....

The evening was an absolute blast and with so much crowd support the guys only played better and partied harder!

- This awarded Enigma with no only the "Crowd's" vote but also a well deserved vote and "thumbs up" from a panel of judges, claiming their first win and massive step forward within the music industry.

Following this outstanding win, Enigma won themselves many prizes including studio recording time, merchandise, banners and a place on MMG's "Hi-Jack" tour opening up a wide range of UK venues, (dates are currently being booked and will be announced shorly)

This historic UK final will be hosted at none other than the Marshall Studio's, Milton Keynes, (date to be announced after the other finalalists have been announced).

From the guys:

"The support this far has been purely based on "YOU" the fans so from all of Enigma we say thank you! and watch what we do next, it will be bigger, better and even more fun!"

- James, Ryan, Jack, Josh. Enigma.

Also a huge thanks to Majic Music Group "MMG" for eveything they have done so far. For more info visit: Majick Music Group
