L.ove A.nd N.ew E.ncouraged S.tories

The boys were formed in Sep 18, and released their first track ‘Taking Me Over’ in February of this year ... the track received praise from Absolute Radios Pete Donaldson and Radio X’ Gordon Smart.

The boys first gig at The Good Mixer in Camden in April followed ~ and went down a storm. The place was packed to the rafters and the crowd were singing the boys tune back to them.

The lads are coming off the back of a double release ‘See The Sun’ and ‘MSI’ ~ which was a return to the idea of B sides from yesteryear.

The lads wanted to give their fans more food for thought and give them a surprise bonus track as a thank you for their support.

The boys returned to solidify their support on a local level by selling out the The Dublin Castle in Camden on the 24/5/19 (only their second show - and were the first band since ‘Madness’ in the 80s to be offered a residency there) - the chaps returning to the studio in July and are set to play the following gigs:

22/7/19 - The Waterhole in Amsterdam

16/8/19 - 229 Great Portland Street ~

After that the plan is to head to Liverpool, Manchester, and Leeds in September.

The boys musical influences range from Oasis, and The Brian Jones Town Massacre and from Pink Floyd to Weekend Offender

Hard-hitting 90's Rock

Spit

SPIT was formed in the summer of 2008 and is forged from a mutual love of the back bone elements of nineties rock music: gritty vocals, heavy guitars, a tight rhythm section and just a touch of aggression. Just a touch...

Their shows are energy packed, hard hitting and memorable and this has resulted in a track record they’re rightfully proud of. Since the start we have played hundreds of shows. Seven years into the journey that is SPIT we still have the same passion and energy and continue to expand our skills. Combining original material and ‘spitified’ covers we are able to bring the SPIT to any venue. Come see them if you don't believe it! We dare you.
