Label: Warner Records
Released: 8th April 2022
Band releases music. Band tours world. Pandemic forces band to stop. Everyone has time to think. Stuff happens. Band reforms. Band tackles stuff. Band emerges anew. Sure, the concentrated story of The Regrettes’ last few years may not be unique at its base level, but their response is anything but cookie-cutter.
‘Further Joy’ is the sound of a gang regrouping from an enforced pause and hitting the fallout head-on. Inspired by a 10-day writing retreat where the band transformed their living space into a disco and candidly talked through the difficult parts, they’ve ended up with a record heavy in content but bright and optimistic in tone. Vulnerable but united, it’s an album unafraid to be honest, but that doesn’t think that should preclude hope for the future.
From cooler-than-you LA punks to alt-pop superstars, The Regrettes are stronger than ever before.
