Gritty Rock 'n' Roll from Vancouver BC
"When one hails from a rural city filled with pick up trucks, donut shops and mini malls, sometimes you just gotta try and buck the system. In 1996, four dudes from Langley, BC decided to do just that. Sick of the "hesher" valley lifestyle of the small farming community just outside of Vancouver, Mr. DEAN, CC, RYAN, and JASON busted the mold, forming a band set to play good, tough, solid, fast, in-your-face rock'n'roll music, and voila,
THE SPITFIRES were born.
Claiming influence from the gritty punk and rock'n'roll scene of underground USA (Devil Dogs, Dead Boys, Pagans, Humpers), THE SPITFIRES quickly shaped their raw musical leanings into dozens of firey originals, then simply took the local scene by storm. They've become a reputable club draw, packing and selling out venues everywhere and every time they perform."
