Track Of The Day :: The Spitfires - Return To Me
Words: Sam Geary
Rock 'n' roll rebelliousness at its best from Watford four-piece The Spitfires on new single 'Return To Me'.
Echoing The Smiths, Bellowhead and their earlier mod influences, frontman Billy Sullivan says of the song, the third to be taken from their upcoming album: "For me 'Return To Me' is the centre-piece of the album. It's based on a really old riff that I wrote when I was a kid, that for some reason kept coming back to me when I'd pick up a guitar, so I suppose that's where the initial concept came from. It came out exactly how I intended it to and I think it shows real progression."
The track is available as a free download now with all digital pre-orders of forthcoming second album 'A Thousand Times' (out on August 26 via Catch 22 Records) from iTunes.
The band will play an intimate hometown album launch party at a secret venue in Watford on Friday August 26, where for the special price of £10 you will receive entry, a copy of 'A Thousand Times' and an exclusive lyric sheet for 'On My Mind'. There are just a handful of tickets left available from here.
