The Spitfires Begin Their Farewell With ‘Save Me’

The band's grand finale is approaching...

The Spitfires marked themselves out as one of the country's most tenacious underground guitar groups.

Indebted to the Mod lineage but giving it a modern spin, the band's spiky, sharp-edged and stylish songwriting earned a cult audience.

Packing out venues across the country and beyond, the band have released a string of vital albums.

All good things come to an end, however, and The Spitfires confirmed their intention to take a prolonged rest in a statement to fans.

New album 'Play For Today' is their grand farewell, and it's set to be released through Acid Jazz on February 25th.

The release will be accompanied by a special show, with The Spitfires saying goodbye to fans with a show at Camden's Electric Ballroom on February 26th.

New track 'Save Me' airs through Clash, and it's a potent indication that The Spitfires aren't going down without a fight.

Pushing themselves right to the end, 'Save Me' explores the distorted lens of conservatism that falls across English suburbia, while also adding layers of electronics.

A coiled spring of a pop song, 'Save Me' carries an urgent appeal – check it out now.
