Sarah Shook is releasing their debut solo album as Mightmare, Cruel Liars, on October 14 via Kill Rock Stars (pre-order), and we’re now premiering its new single “Enemy.” “When I started working on ‘Enemy’ I was thinking about how people can be so vindictive during breakups and how pointless it is,” Sarah tells us. “It got me wondering if a breakup somehow triggers something deeper in us psychologically, like a fundamental fear of being forgotten or something. And by the time I finished it I was missing all my childhood friends and all the people I’ve lost along the way.” It’s a brooding rock song with some early PJ Harvey vibes that’s a clear departure from Sarah’s country band The Disarmers, and it’s a very promising taste of the new LP. Listen and check out the Jordan Gibson-directed video below.

Mightmare also have upcoming tour dates (all are listed below), and Sarah Shook & the Disarmers also have an upcoming tour that hits NYC’s TV Eye on November 3. All of their dates are here.
