Thee Spivs are putting on a fun-packed all dayer show that they’re calling Spiv Fest to celebrate the release of their new album  The Crowds and The Sounds (Damaged Goods 24 June) featuring friends and fans and a lot of good old rock’n’roll!

With the new album they’ve honed their canny blend of trad punk, garage punk, post punk, new wave, classic English rock’n’roll and pub rock to create a magnifi- cently varied album. Dare we say, these young men have matured, with Ben Edge proving his worth as an accomplished songwriter. Drawing from a more diverse array of influences, Thee Spivs have lapped up and reimagined sounds from bands such as The Television Personalities, The Ramones and early Wire.



The Crowds And The Sounds LP/CD/DL is due out on 24 June

The new album is a natural progression from their critically acclaimed debut ‘Taped Up’ (which landed the band an early Mojo Rising feature and a Guardian New Band of the Day piece as well as praise in The Sunday Times and Artrocker) and last year’s ‘Black and White Memories’ (with reviews including Q, Uncut and BBC). ‘The Crowds and The Sounds’ is instantly more melodic and you can see additional influences from the very British qualities of The Kinks. The songs are slowed down and slightly longer in length, with a lot more thought and work in to each one than the furiously fast, punchy numbers from their early records.

The first single from the album is called "Straight Out Of Art School" and it’s backed with an exclusive b-side called ‘HERE AND NOW’, Thee Spivs will also be releasing a limited German 7” on SQUOOGE records which is another track from the new album called ‘Mickey Pearce Walked Away’.
