The Spitfires stream Response

The Spitfires have made their debut album available to stream exclusively via TeamRock.

The Watford four-piece release Response today (August 21) and it can be streamed in its entirety below. Classic Rock magazine recently gave the record a 710 review.

They will issue 4AM as a single on August 14. Frontman Billy Sullivan says: “4AM was one of the later tracks to be written for the album. It’s just about being skint and how it makes general living a struggle. Your girlfriend thinks she deserves better than you, the landlord’s driving you mad because you haven’t paid the rent and in the end you lay awake at night thinking about it.

“Lyrically I’m not trying to be sophisticated or particularly clever – just painting a picture of mundane life.”

The Spitfires have a string of tour dates coming up.
