The Spitfires are a Watford-based 4 piece who’ve released two acclaimed albums ‘Response’ (2015) and ‘A Thousand Times’ (2016), several singles and have extensively toured the UK and Europe since their inception in 2012. The band scored a national UK number 1 vinyl single in April 2016 with ‘So Long’, a number 2 vinyl single in May 2017 with ‘Move On’ and both albums reached the top 5 UK independent album charts.
Their work ethic and powerful song-writing mixed with acute social commentary has made this fiercely independent band one of the most popular underground success stories in the UK today and turned DJs like Gary Crowley (BBC London), Steve Lamacq (BBC6Music) and Rodney Bingenheimer (KROQ)into fans. They’ve supported The Specials and Paul Weller, and their DIY attitude and spirit has earned them a dedicated following across the UK and Europe.
The band are led by lead vocalist, guitarist and songwriter Billy Sullivan who is joined by Sam Long on bass and vocals, George Moorhouse on keyboards and vocals and Matt Johnson on drums.
Support comes from Southampton’s fiery guitar pop quartet, The Novatones.
