After a relentless 2019 of touring across the UK and Europe, as well as showcasing their explosive live show on a live EP release in March, The Spitfires’ onslaught of playing shows and releasing music is taking an overhaul of fresh ideas and inspiration, releasing their most ambitious single to date, ‘Enough Is Enough.’ Reaching #2 in the Official UK Vinyl Singles Chart - Billy Sullivan, Sam Long and Matt Johnson have flexed their creative muscle once more with this eccentric rock masterclass.
With addictive horn melodies, delicate guitar work and a soft opening, the raw, emotive song writing of Billy Sullivan is lifted to another level in the arena-sized choruses that echo throughout the track. Featuring an extended jam section of driving percussion, soloing and experimentation, the creative juices are overflowing in this one from the get-go. Whilst maintaining their working-class ethos that has won over fans from just about every corner of the globe, it’s evident that they’re taking things in a new direction new here.
On creating ‘Enough Is Enough,’ Billy Sullivan added:
“Enough Is Enough was one of the first tracks I wrote after the release of our last album Year Zero. However, it was only when it got into the hands of Simon Dine, our new producer, that the song really come to life. We were able to stretch what we were capable of as musicians and as a band in the studio due to Simon’s recording techniques and ability to get the best out of us. I think it’s a brilliant starting point to a new phase of The Spitfires. Press play and dance.”
Through their albums ‘Response,’ ‘A Thousand Times’ and ‘Year Zero,’ The Spitfires have a unique ability of bending genres, and as a result have created a sound only identifiable to them. Whether it’s having a #1 album in the UK Independent Chart, performing on BBC’s The Andrew Marr Show, selling out London’s 100 Club two nights in a row or touring around the world non-stop, they’ve never failed to impress their incredibly loyal fans, who now get the first taste of a new chapter in their story. The song may be different, but the energy, attitude and commitment remain the same – who’s in?
