Artist Profile - Second Hand Arms Dealer: Sound of Spitfire

Artist Bio

Tell us a bit about yourself? We're three guys from different walks of life, who connect through a love for music and a hatred for injustice. Re-arming you with punk, we harbour the feist of Rage Against the Machine, whilst our sounds are influenced by the like of White Stripes and RHCP. We want to trigger the planet into better days one song at a time and motivate a generation into taking back control.

There are a lot of emerging artists in the UK right now. What sets you apart from the rest? Our live performances put us a cut above the rest. Each band member has a played live shows from a young age, but once all 3 of us are on stage together something magical happens. The crowd seems to feel our chemistry, feed off our energy and we love every minute.

What’s your back-story? Our songs express the way we feel about current affairs. They have been written with the sole purpose of bringing people together but we love that people can interpret them any way they want.

What are you working on at the moment? We're currently recording our album down in the English Riviera and playing as many gigs as possible.

The dream is to have the opportunity to share our music with the world, as we love to play and truly believe we have something very exciting to offer to the fans. We would really appreciate your support in making this dream a reality.
