New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Watford quartet THE SPITFIRES are pleased to announce they will be playing live on The Andrew Marr Show on Sunday 11th February. The programme starts at 9am on BBC1.
Their latest single 'Over and Over Again' charted in the Top 5 of the UK Vinyl Singles Chart just before Christmas, and is out now through Hatch Records on 7" vinyl and via all good digital retailers.
The news comes as The Spitfires gear up for their first live shows of 2018 and a newly announced run of UK headline dates.
Taking influences from the likes of The Clash, Billy Bragg and The Jam by way of forays into roots music, soul, reggae and ska, the band have released two albums to date. Their latest full-length, A Thousand Times (2016), was the follow-up to the critically acclaimed debut Response (2015) which saw the band enter high in the UK Album Charts and reach #6 in both the independent and vinyl charts, with the single 'So Long' charting at #1 in UK Vinyl Singles Chart.
'Over and Over Again' is out now on Hatch Records
