“One of this year’s biggest break out bands”, as proclaimed by the CW NETWORK, Spit Hot Fire is a 2-piece alternative band and studio project from New York City. A true creative partnership, Bryce Alvord is the lead singer and main songwriter and Ben Altman is the lead guitar player and producer/engineer, although both members collaborate on every aspect of the art. PAPER MAGAZINE writes: “Their sound is perfect for anyone who likes ska, reggae, The Clash and hip- hop.”… Their blend of alternative rock, pop, hip-hop and reggae makes for a modern brand of music that is both accessible and edgy. They are currently gigging at some of NYC’s most exclusive clubs as well as college campuses in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern regions following a NACA conference showcase. As AVENUE editor’s Peter Davis says “They deserve to be huge.”
