Frontman Billy Sullivan said: “Enough Is Enough was one of the first tracks I wrote after the release of our last album Year Zero.

"However, it was only when it got into the hands of Simon Dine, our new producer, that the song really came to life.”

With addictive horn melodies, delicate guitar work and the emotive song writing of Billy Sullivan, the song is lifted to another level in the arena-sized choruses that echo throughout.

He said: “We were able to stretch what we were capable of as musicians and as a band in the studio due to Simon’s recording techniques and ability to get the best out of us.”

From topping the UK Independent Chart to supporting the likes of Paul Weller, it’s their working class ethos that has gained a loyal fan base from almost every corner of the globe.

Billy said: “I think it’s a brilliant starting point to a new phase of The Spitfires.

"Press play and dance.”
