An independent record label based in the heart of Leeds, West Yorkshire


Hatch Records are very pleased to announce we are now working with The Spitfires.





Out Now!



The Spitfires are a Watford-based 4 piece who’ve released two acclaimed albums ‘Response’ (2015) and ‘A Thousand Times (2016).


Taking influences from The Clash, Billy Bragg, The Jam through to Soul, Reggae and Ska - the band have released 2 albums since 2015.


'A Thousand Times' was the follow-up to the critically acclaimed debut ‘Response’ which saw the band enter high in the UK Album Charts and reach #6 in both the independent and vinyl charts, with the single ‘So Long’ charting at #1 in UK Vinyl Singles Chart.


Their work ethic and powerful song-writing mixed with their acute social commentary and lack of mainstream industry support has made this fiercely independent band one of the most popular underground success stories in the UK today. This DIY attitude and independent spirit has earned them a dedicated following and sold out shows across the whole of the UK and Europe.

Hatch Records are an independent record label based in the heart of Leeds, West Yorkshire.


Since forming in 2013 the label has lovingly released singles and albums from Then Thickens, Nine Black Alps, Napolean IIrd and Deadwall.

Marc Riley Sessions Volume 2, released 6th October, includes songs taken from no less than eight of the band’s celebrated albums, including Seamonsters, the record-breaking Hit Parade releases and band’s most recent album, the critically acclaimed Going, Going...
