THE SPITFIRES announce their final album -‘PLAY FOR TODAY’ OUT 25 FEBRUARY, 2022. Album release to coincide with a farewell show at London’s Electric Ballroom.
After four albums, including two number one UK National Vinyl and Indie Chart releases, hundreds of gigs across the UK and Europe to a loyal, hardcore fan base, The Spitfires take their final flight with a farewell album and show.
For their triumphant final release, the band entwines influences from New Wave, 2 Tone and Britpop, with electronic hooks and big choruses. ‘Play For Today’, places the listener straight into heart of British suburbia – depicting the lives and stories of bored housewives, cliquey local pubs and cocaine-ridden businessmen. With broad strokes of light/shade, humour and sarcasm, it’s a ‘Parklife’ for Gen Z…
Produced by Simon Dine (Dexys, Paul Weller, The Waterboys), the band continues to strive, musically and sonically. The Watford-based group offer new textures alongside their characteristic pop nous and raw passion, all the while driven by frontman and lyricist Billy Sullivan’s astute social commentary.
Advance single ‘Save Me’ sets the tone for ‘’Play For Today’, exploring escapism in a warped, conservative version of suburbia, while hinting at the more electronic element that runs throughout the album.
The album release will coincide with a farewell show at London’s Electric Ballroom, allowing fans to bare witness, for the last time, to one of the UK’s most exciting young bands of recent years.
The culmination of a career to date, ‘Play For Today’ sees the Spitfires leave their final mark, here and now, making way for a new beginning.
