Regan was formed in 2015, when a group of guys from Bradford realised they had something special to offer! They are an alternative/indie band made up of Tom, James, Aaron, Jack and Jamie who bring us their own take on alternative rock and are currently promoting their new single Broken Promises!
TELL ME A BIT ABOUT YOUR BAND & WHY SHOULD WE CHECK YOU OUT?
We are a five-piece band that formed around a year ago in Bradford. We play shit hot rock ‘n’ roll music ‘reminiscent of early Oasis, The Who and The Enemy’. You should check us out to have the night of your life at one of our shows. Also check out our songs out on Spotify/iTunes and we promise, you won’t stop listening to the catchy rock ‘n’ roll tunes we deliver.
WHO ARE YOUR MAJOR INFLUENCES AND WHY?
Major influences around the band are Foo Fighters, Arctic Monkeys, Oasis, The Enemy, Stereophonics and bands like that, as we feel the passion and energy through their music and we wanna write music that makes people feel the same way.
WHO WRITES YOUR SONGS? WHAT ARE THE MAIN THEMES OR TOPICS FOR MOST OF YOUR SONGS?
The majority of the current songs have been written by our guitar player James, but the songwriting process is becoming more of a band effort nowadays. The main theme of most of our songs is having a good time and we sing about getting drunk, girls, sex, relationships and having a laugh with the lads.
WHO IS YOUR FAVOURITE UNSIGNED/UNDERGROUND BAND AT THE MOMENT AND WHY?
Our favourite underground band at the moment has to be MINT. We saw them once and by accident and was instantly blown away! We’ve been lucky enough to share a stage with them at a gig in Bradford and are going to do so again later this year.
WHAT’S IN YOUR CAR CD PLAYER RIGHT NOW OR LAST SONG PLAYED ON SPOTIFY?
Catfish & the Bottlemen – The Ride. Last song played was ‘Postpone’. This album gets better and better every time you hear it!
DESCRIBE TO ME YOUR LIVE PERFORMANCE…
Electric balls on the table rock and fucking roll! Get to the gigs and see for yourself.
ON THAT NOTE DO YOU HAVE ANY UPCOMING SHOWS?
We will be playing around the UK, so keep a look out for the dates and get to a show near you. We are playing Kazoopa festival in Leeds.
YOU’RE STRANDED ON A DESERT ISLAND LIKE VINCE NOIR AND HOWARD MOON IN THE NIGHTMARE OF MILKY JOE AND HAVE ALBUM TO GET THROUGH, WHAT IS IT?
Gonna say a live album. Don’t care if you don’t count it. Oasis, Familiar to Millions blue album. Our whole sound is pretty much based around it.
WHATS ON THE HORIZON, WHAT CAN WE LOOK FORWARD TO FROM YOU?
Our new single ‘Broken Promises’ was released, 22nd September and is doing well we’ve also just released Broken Promises. We are also in the studio recording more new music in December, which will be released next year, and who knows, when the right people listen the sky is the limit!
