Genre: Heavy Rock / Rock 'N' Roll from Munich, Germany
SPITFIRE return with their new album "Do Or Die"! They sound more varied than ever but still stay true to themselves, and deliver straight-forward, handmade rock music without frills!
Tom Petty's simplicity - whom they also pay tribute to on this album with a cover version of one of his songs - paired with casual Californian punk rock, dirty old Swedish rock sounds, huge guitars and a modern production are some characteristics of the sound SPITFIRE presents on this album.
"Do Or Die" is as straightforward as you might expect it from SPITFIRE, but it also offers some sounds you might haven't heard from the three-piece yet.
The past 5 years have not exactly been a walk in the park for SPITFIRE and a few lyrics reflect that. But no worries, SPITFIRE still know how to party and songs like "Like A Lady" prove that.
Following an old tradition, SPITFIRE once again included a cover version on their upcoming album: Close to the original but also with a clear SPITFIRE edge in terms of the production, "Out In The Cold" by the great Tom Petty - taken from his hit record "Into The Great White Open" (1991) - fits seamlessly into this album.

Most of the songs were written over the course of 6 months and replaced more than 30 songs or song ideas the band has accumulated over the past 5 years.
When the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting lock-downs hit the world, it almost marked the end of the whole project, but it led to a do-or-die mindset, which ended up being the album title for obvious reasons.
