Thanks to everyone who came out to the packed show at Rockwood Music Hall. The full seven-piece was on fire!
Much to celebrate at the moment:
The Spottiswoode song Blaze Of Glory has just won two awards - the Mark Award in LA and the Production Music Award in London - for Best Underscore in a TV show. You can watch the whole clip of the song on the DirecTV mixed martial arts show Kingdom, HERE.
And two Spottiswoode songs are prominently featured in A Street Cat Named Bob, a feature film starring Luke Treadaway based on the international best-selling memoir by James Bowen. Luke sings both songs himself as a down and out busker in London. The first song, BEAUTIFUL MONDAY, opens the film. Luke sings the second song, STILL SMALL VOICE INSIDE to his "romantic interest" in her flat.
The film was released in the UK in early November and remained in the top five at the box office for its first two weeks. It opened in the US on November 18th and will continue to open around the world through early 2017.
The sequence with the full song can be seen here on the Super Pitch label website.
The episode first aired on December 9th, 2015.
The song was produced by Riley McMahon at New Warsaw Studio in Brooklyn and released by the French label Super Pitch.
Earlier in 2015 the song ALL IN THE PAST, from the band's IMA-winning WILD GOOSECHASE EXPEDITION, was featured as the closing track of the last episode of the Netflix series BLOODLINE. The track was produced by Kenny Siegal for Old Soul Records.

Spottiswoode & His Enemies sixth studio recording. A haunting new departure for the New York septet. After winning two Independent Music Awards for 2012’s Wild Goosechase Expedition - a poppy and satirical romp about a rock band’s doomed tour - the band returns with a beautiful and much more atmospheric set.
ENGLISH DREAM is an English record written and sung by an Englishman and recorded in Brooklyn by a New York band. “Salvation, our fourth record - was Americana,” says Spottiswoode. “This time we’ve gone Anglicana and made a pastoral collection of songs about nature, love, childhood and the other side of the pond. Sometimes it’s idyllic and sometimes it’s a bit scary.”
See the trailer for the band's sixth record.
