The Spitfires Release Remains The Same From Year Zero

The Spitfires have released Remains The Same with an accompanying video, from their much anticipated forthcoming album, Year Zero which will be released via Hatch Records on 27th July. Their work ethic and acute social commentary has made this fiercely independent band one of the most popular underground success stories in the UK today. Their attitude and independent spirit has earned them a dedicated and loyal following across the whole of the UK and Europe.

The Spitfires are a Watford based 4-piece consisting of songwriter Billy Sullivan on lead vocals and guitar, Sam Long on Bass/backing vocals, Matt Johnson on drums and George Moorhouse on keyboards. They take in a wide range of influences from early 60s Modern music, Reggae and Ska, through to punk and soul. This melting pot has helped infuse the band’s own sound and style. It would be too simplistic to say that they are just another Jam-alike band as they fuse elements of The Clash like Reggae New Wave and horns reminiscent of the Two Tone Ska revival.

Year Zero is The Spitfires third album and follows up, Response which was released in 2015 and A Thousand Times which was released the following year. Both albums peaked at Number 6 in the Independent charts and also dented the national Top 100. In addition they hit Number 1 in the UK Vinyl Singles Chart with So Long back in April 2016.

As well as supporting the likes of The Specials and Paul Weller, the band have also played to vast audiences at The Isle of Wight, Reading and Y Not Festivals over the last couple of summers and have recently made their national TV debut on BBC’s Andrew Marr Show, waking up Sunday morning viewers with a blistering version of Stand Down from their debut album.

You can see The Spitfires live during thier nationwide UK tour which kicks of in Southend on 5th October and culminates next year at Liverpool on 23rd February . Tickets are on sale now.
