Thoughts of forming a band were laid when metalheads Vibhas and Suhas wanted to jam to get their minds off the board-exam tension. But nothing happened as the tension grew. The idea was brought back when they recruited Charan and Akhilesh to take over vocals and bass respectively. Spitfire had their first Jam in the month of July 2005, and played their first gig at the August Sunday Jam followed by Freedom Jam 2005. August 2007 welcomed some line-up changes in the form of Akhilesh being replaced by Vicky.
Since then, the quartet has been playing every show they possibly can. The band has released two singles online till date. Namely, ‘Burn It’ and ‘Minds In Disguise’. “Burn It” is featured on Absolute Indian Metal 1(2006),which is a compilation CD released by EMP Records featuring 16 jaw belting tracks from the best upcoming bands from India.
Spitfire is planning to hit the studios soon to record their debut album when they can afford it, and yeah, funding and donations are welcome! Their sound is a mixture of Metal-core with Death metal, Nu metal, and also experiments within the boundaries of metal itself.
