UK headline tour dates through February

“They have the same ragged, hell-for-leather, emo-leaning attitude as Cloud Nothings, but there are moments of tenderness between the power chords. Spielbergs connect their collective years of yearning, fuzz-friendly songwriting into anthems.”The Guardian, Best New Music of 2019

Spielbergs are hitting the ground running in 2019 with the immediate release of new single Five On It, the latest track to be taken from their forthcoming debut album This Is Not The End. Having wrapped up a busy 2018, during which they released their debut EP Distant Star, topped the Hype Machine twice, and played their first European festivals – leading to them being named by The Guardian in their Best New Music of 2019 – new single Five On It again shines a light on band’s talent for strong vocal melodies and emotive songwriting.

Praise for Spielbergs

“‘We Are All Going To Die’ is the perfect introduction to the trio – with clattering rhythms and razor-sharp riffs combining for a devastating listen.”NME

“Big, heart-on-sleeve guitar-rock with a go-for-broke anthemic intensity… “We Are All Going To Die” will have you either tearing up, punching the sky, or both.”Stereogum

“An amazing band”Dan P Carter, Radio 1

“Fans of fuzzy, propulsive cathartic jams, are about to have a new favourite band.”Kerrang!

“Pummelling yet melodic guitars batter you round the heart with nary a pause for breath… Full of huge, lung-busting, shouting-into-the-wind vocals and relentless drums, guitars and everything else, cheerily-titled new single ‘We Are All Going To Die’ shows little concern for restraint.”DIY

“We Are All Going To Die” is encased in a relentless soundscape of drums and guitars, owing its all-encompassing musicianship to shoegaze that is underpinned by a distinctly emo heart.”The Line of Best Fit

“A roller coaster ride of rollicking riffs, descending and ascending with a luminous fury and friskiness, before delivering us back home again safe and sound, but breathless.” 405

“An alt-rock banger, ‘We Are All Going To Die’ is a lot more fun than it sounds.”
– Dork

“Guitars drill down at all angles, while the pummelling percussion sounds like a cement mixer trying to chew up a steel beam.”CLASH

“It offers the kind of swaggering, punch-drunk escapism we used to spend all our time wishing for in our teenage years, while making it feel utterly achievable even now we’re much older and far more cynical.”Gold Flake Paint

“Harnessing the sun-kissed escapism of road-trip-rock acts like Japandroids and Cloud Nothings, their pessimistic streak is cast aside be searing riffs and an urgency most lo-fi groups could do well to glean from.”AnotherMan

“One of the most exciting bands of 2018.”The i Paper
