Since their official formation in April 2019, Spyres have racked up over three million streams on Spotify alone, with break-out singles Otherside, Fake ID and I Don’t Care, all receiving an incredible outpouring of radio support from the likes of BBC Radio 1’s Jack Saunders, Radio X’s John Kennedy, BBC Introducing Scotland’s Phoebe I-H and Vic Galloway. The reaction to the band has been mirrored in press with fevered endorsements from DORK, Gigwise, The Scottish Sun, Daily Record, Tenement TV and Distorted Sound at a glance.
Making a name for themselves on stage, Spyres supporting credentials include The Jesus And Mary Chain, Nothing But Thieves, The Snuts, Soft Cult to name a few. In spite of the pandemic, in 2021 Spyres made serious ground in the live space in their own right. Their headline show at Glasgow’s King Tuts on the Summer Nights programme sold-out in less than 24 hours of the onsale date, and months later, the band sold-out London’s Old Blue Last, Glasgow’s Stereo and Edinburgh’s Mash House. In addition to this, Spyres made their debut at a number of major festivals; TRNSMT, Neighborhood, Live At Leeds, including a headline slot on the This Feeling stage at Isle Of Wight Festival.
In 2022, the band released their highly anticipated debut EP ‘Dear Diary’, featuring the likes of Lost Without You & Test. Out now is new single ‘Sleep Forever’, fresh off the back of an unforgettable sold out headline hometown show at St Lukes!
