Spring Offensive are an exciting young band from Oxford, England, the home of internationally acclaimed acts such as Radiohead, Supergrass and Foals. From this small university town, they've established themselves firmly on the national scene. And now they're making strides across the Atlantic to the USA, as they team up with Burning Building Recordings to release their debut album Pull Us Apart in June 21, 2011.
Combining math and post-rock with layers of vocal harmonies and pounding rhythms, their sound is unique and dynamic, though influenced by many U.S. bands, including Death Cab For Cutie, The National, Low and Brand New.
While at home they've played festivals and shared stages with renowned U.K. and European acts such as Frank Turner, Jeniferever and The Go! Team, they had never considered touring or promoting themselves in the U.S. until BBR got involved. Now their American friends can get hold of the music, championed and tipped by the U.K.'s media.
The band states, "the U.S. has a wonderfully eclectic scene, and we're thrilled to be releasing through BBR, whose roster demonstrates that. We're huge fans of all the bands on the label, and huge fans of the Seattle scene in general, which has given us so much influential and inspiring music over the years. We've always thought that our songs would be suited to an American audience, so it's great to get the chance to prove it."
