Young, loud & Snotty! Italian teenage Indie rockers release debut record ‘Dystopic School’ on Contempo Records

Florence is home to many masterpieces of Renaissance art and architecture, it’s also home to Indie Punk Rockers Spleen… Best described as a melting pot of grungepunk, and noise. Founded in June 2019, as ‘Big Breast on Fat Boys’ (Name changed to ‘Spleen’ Jan 2024) the rock n roll high school three piece of Samuele (guitar and vocals), Matteo (drums), and Olmo (guitar) played a series of live performances around Florence, which over time built the band a solid fan base. Following the name change the band caught the attention of Contempo Records, and on the 1st of February 2024 Spleen signed a worldwide exclusive deal with the label..

Produced by Ale Sportelli (Raw PowerNot MovingProzac +) this debut 3 track 7” EP ‘Dystopic School’ is a kick-ass, anthemic guitar-fuelled power punch with bags of swagger and attitude (Think QOTSA, Jimmy Eat World, Green Day). The EP is released on the 21st June (Streaming) & will also be available in the shops on vinyl from the 14th June. 

Next step…once the boys finish their final exams this summer (The band are in their last year of high school), then it will definitely be a case of ‘Schools Out’, as work will then begin on their debut album, which will be released at the back end of 2024, early 2025. Live shows to support the release will include UK dates later in the year…
