The Spitfires are a 4 piece band from Watford.

This attitude has earnt them a dedicated following and sold out shows across the UK and abroad. Following up the critically acclaimed debut ‘Response’ which saw the band enter high in the UK Album Charts and reach Number 6 in both the independent and vinyl charts - The Spitfires return with their much anticipated second album ‘A Thousand Times’ out August 26th on Catch 22 Records.

"Songwriter Billy Sullivan ensures that The Spitfires are a cut above" - Daily Mirror
"Welcome to the new sound of British rock" – Uber Rock
“Gaining more and more friends with their stunning live shows” – Fred Perry Subculture
The 11 tracks on ‘A Thousand Times’ reflect a sharper, wider vision and a more honed song craft than previously seen. The first single ‘So Long’ was a taste of things to come, reaching number one in the UK Vinyl chart. The classic pop theme is carried into the title track and the stunning ‘On My Mind’ with its anthemic chorus and soaring melodies. Tracks like ‘Day to Day’ and ‘Return To Me’ show a natural progression in style and with its cinematic soundscape, whilst the thrilling ‘I Don’t Even Know Myself’ shows influences of Dub, Reggae and Ska. All hinting at bigger things (and venues) to come.
