“the sound of young, socially aware people sharing their frustration and elation with heavy energy and a no-fucks-given attitude.” – LA Weekly


June 12, 2017 (Burbank, CA) – LA-based punk act The Regrettes have released a politically-charged new video for their song, “Seashore,” off their critically acclaimed debut album, Feel Your Feelings, Fool!  Entertainment Weekly premieres the video today, describing the video as, “a big middle-finger to men who underestimate or belittle young women.” The video features singer Lydia Night depicting scenes of oppressed women throughout history. Director Claire Vogel explains, “I wanted to pair the defiance of the lyrics with a handful of historical vignettes that embrace women taking control of situations that have held them back. I wanted each scene to hint at how people might have freely spoken their inner thoughts in those moments should they have had the privilege.” Yesterday, the band kicked off a headlining tour across the U.S., which will be followed by a U.K. tour with SWMRS this fall. A full list of dates is below.
Watch The Regrettes’ New Video for “Seashore”:
Led by 16-year-old Lydia Night, The Regrettes have established themselves as a leading breakout band, earning buzz from Billboard, NPR, Vogue, BUST,and NYLON, among others, and recently scoring a sync of their track “Hey Now” in a Dunkin’ Donuts TV commercial airing later this month. The band has toured extensively throughout the past year, including shows with Taco Cat, Sleigh Bells, Kate Nash, Peaches, Cherry Glazerr and The Frights.
Night (vocals, guitar) is joined by members Genessa Gariano (age 20, guitar), Sage Chavis (age 19, bass) and Maxx Morando (age 18, drums), who have collectively dominated the Los Angeles punk rock scene since forming as The Regrettes in 2015. Night’s bashful, blunt attitude is reminiscent of Debbie Harry and Joan Jett, drawing listeners in to the band’s infectious – and unapologetically honest – punk-driven pop songs.
Further Praise for The Regrettes
“The band played with cool confidence when its members were just kids; now that most of them are grown, look out.”
-NPR
“[The Regrettes] delivered a set of solid pop-rock […]”
-Billboard
 
“LA quartet The Regrettes make an infectious brand of punk with ’50s and ’60s pop leanings, and they beam with a youthful exuberance and raw vulnerability that result in deceptively provocative songs.
– Stereogum
 
“Their sound is reminiscent of punk acts that made waves decades prior, but Night’s insight offers listeners a fresh, in-the-moment resurgence of feminist angst.”
-Nylon
 
“Their music sounds like a lively blend of lo-fi surf rock meets The Strokes with a strong female lead-a combination sought by many but well executed by few.”
-Vogue
“With a 90’s pop/rock attitude and a vintage style reminiscent of the ’50s and ’60s, The Regrettes is a teenage band made up of kids who are clearly wise beyond their years.”
-Bust
“Free of cynicism or entitlement, The Regrettes’ passion mirrors the spirit of their dizzying music.”

-Chicago Tribune
