Melodic punk outfit SPOILERS is set to release their first full-length album Roundabouts in September 2018. This record is the anticipated follow-up to a 7-inch single and 2015’s EP Stay Afloat, a well-received and highly lauded debut that sold out upon its release.
Pre-Sale begins - 26.07.208 Release Date - 27.09.2018
Little Rocket Records will release 150 limited edition red/yellow splatter LPs in North America as part of a multinational effort to share this album far and wide. Other color releases, limited to 150 copies each, are available from Boss Tuneage, Brassneck Records and Sbam Records
Following the release of Roundabouts, SPOILERS plan to tour in Canada and the US in 2019. Hailing from the South East of England this Kent based four piece features ex members of UK punk bands, Southport, 7 Day Conspiracy and More Than Normal.After listening to some old demo tracks Dan had been holding onto for years, Spoilers began in 2015.Fast forward three years, Spoilers have played countless shows all over the UK and Europe sharing a stage with some of the biggest names in punk rock, such as Snuff, NOFX, lag wagon, Face to Face, Alkaline Trio and A Wilhelm Scream.
After three short and busy years of playing shows, SPOILERS continue with gigs all over the UK and Europe and share the stage with some of the biggest acts in punk rock, including Snuff, NOFX, Lagwagon, Face to Face, Alkaline Trio, and A Wilhelm Scream. Their success is due to what initially appears to be a pop punk project but is grounded in a tight melodic hardcore tradition. To do this SPOILERS mix catchy vocal melodies with riffs that wouldn’t be out of place in the early Snuff period and the energy they exert could easily be compared to the combination of China Drum and Gorilla Biscuits in a fist fight with Osker. “Spoilers turn in a sweat-drenched set of soulful and gruff punk rock. Marrying pop punk with shades of Gorilla Biscuits-esque hardcore. They hit the spot early. Melodies as big as houses” Vive le Rock Magazine

REVIEW: The Spoilers are one of those bands that really caught my attention when they opened up for Face to Face this spring during a North American tour,It's hard not to be impressed by how tight and amazing these guys are sounding like across between MXPX and Wizo with a english infusion of course being from Canterbury England.I had the chance to check them out live in a small venue where these guys really get the crowd pumped and going.This album is exactly that confined into a 12 track release that is so full of energy and creative brilliance that it's non stop rocket fueled punk rock from start to finish,The opening track "shortcuts" leads right in with some high fast paced rhythms with a catchy anthemic chorus line that is feel good and a guaranteed crowd pleaser. The bass lines and snare and drum rolls carry the melodic feel of the song much like the titled release for their video "Roundabouts". Although throughout this release it has keys introduced into this 4 piece so it will be interesting on how that is applied in a live enviroment. It's subtle but the the atmospheric key works shine through on Roundabouts and Collision course which has a total Wizo feel to it.With happy go lucky feel break downs and straight forward feel with lyrical content of relationships and life's journeys. the next track "See you ringside" brings a mix up to fast past kick drum pounding in your head to fast up chords with backing screaming vocals and a skate punk feel with a harmonic anthemic break down "What you seeis what you get" chorus line with a Straight Line feel to it.The keys really kick in to a ska feel on "The Same again" that has that parlor keys feel adding to the rhythm section with fast up beat percussion and fast paced lyrics and this song is ramped up to get you going and moving "A trip down memory lane is what I could really use right now".Just when you figured out this album comes a twist with "Push Over" has that more of a hardcore feel with tempo shifts and break downs with backing vocals and an oldschool feel paying homage to the likes of Avail.Target practice and Skipping Stones carries that same positive feel good vibe through to "Lost your way" which will be a crowd chanter with lyrical breaks and backing "Hey Hey's" with a fat fast bass line and solid drum work with straight forward chords with hooks.The album ends with "Excuses,Excuses" a killer track that ends it off well that delivers the over all sound and direction these guys are known for.Well crafted lyrical content blistering tight drum work and solid bass lines with catchy rhythm sections with a positive insight both lyrically and creatively a must have to pound a relaxing uplifting beer too.
