Mu­sic fans will re­gret miss­ing this gig

Paisley Daily Express - - The Ticket - Ris­ing punk band in Glas­gow

Don’t miss The Re­grettes as they sup­port SWMRS at Glas­gow bar and mu­sic venue Stereo.

The LA-based punk band re­cently an­nounced that they’ll play a UK tour which com­mences next month as guests to SWMRS. Led by 16-year-old Ly­dia Night, The Re­grettes have es­tab­lished them­selves as a lead­ing breakout band with the re­lease of their de­but al­bum Feel Your Feel­ings, Fool! which has earned praise from Bill­board, NPR, Vogue, En­ter­tain­ment Weekly and NY­LON.

The band has toured ex­ten­sively through­out the past year, in­clud­ing shows with Taco Cat, Sleigh Bells, Peaches, Cherry Glaz­err and The Frights.

Out­spo­ken front­woman Night is known for her lyrics about smash­ing pa­tri­archy and re­ject­ing so­ci­etal norms, and most re­cently penned an es­say for Medium about body pos­i­tiv­ity.

Night on vo­cals and gui­tar is joined by mem­bers Ge­nessa Gar­i­ano, 20, on gui­tar, Sage Chavis, 19, on bass and Maxx Mo­rando, 18, on 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.

They sup­port SWMRS, for­merly Emily’s Army, on Oc­to­ber 1 in Glas­gow.

SWMRS is an Amer­i­can punk rock band formed in Oak­land, Cal­i­for­nia in 2004 by Cole Becker and Joey Arm­strong, with Cole’s brother Max join­ing only a few weeks af­ter­wards.

They drew on a mix of in­flu­ences rang­ing from the Beach Boys to the Ra­mones to cre­ate their own brand of rock.

Check out both of the USA tal­ents when they play next month.
