Following the release of their critically acclaimed debut album, Songs From The Debt Generation, and more than three years on the Australian road, Perth indie upstarts, The Spitfires, are moving on to the UK.
The Spitfires kicked their way out of Perth in 2008 and onto the world circuit with numerous national and international tours taking in Australia, Japan and the UK. As well as becoming road warriors, the band gained notoriety for their offstage antics which included decapitating a statue of ex-British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, blowing up the back of their house on the night of their album launch and a series of legal scraps with a commercial radio station.
The band want to have one last party with all their friends and supporters and will do so at Amplifier on Saturday, May 10, with support from I, Said the Sparrow, Mezzanine, Order Of The Black Werewolf and Odlaw. You can get a free copy of Songs From The Debt Generation on entry to the venue before 10.30pm or with a presale ticket available from the spitfires.net.
