The Spitfires formed in September 2012 by Billy Sullivan (vocals, guitar) and Sam Long (bass), they were soon joined by Matt Johnson (drums) spending their first two years as trio before augmenting their sound with the addition of Chris Chanell (keyboard, vocals).
Their energetic and powerful live performances have already seen them play over 200 + shows so it's no surprise with their growing fan base and reputation, that the band came to the attention of Paul Weller and The Specials who they have already toured with.
They are generally regarded as being at the forefront of the New Mod movement that is taking off around the country. They have sold out shows all over the UK and played several prestigious festivals in Europe, particularly Spain where they have a large dedicated following.
Their last single 'Stand Down' sold out in 2 days & their much anticipated 13-track debut album 'Response' will be released on August 21st 2015
