Line Up/ Support: The Spitfires

The Spitfires - New Album - "Year Zero" Out Now

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. 

The Spitfires take in a wide range of influences from Reggae and Ska through to punk and soul. This melting pot has helped infuse the band’s own sound and style.

The Spitfires have released two albums. ‘Response’ was released in 2015 and ‘A Thousand Times’ in 2016. Both albums peaked at Number 6 in the Independent charts and also dented the national Top 100.

The Spitfires also hit Number 1 in the UK Vinyl Singles Chart with So Long back in April 2016.

The Spitfires 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.

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. The Spitfires recently made their national TV debut on BBC’s Andrew Marr Show, waking up Sunday morning viewers with a blistering version of ‘Stand Down’.
