Tell us a bit about yourself?
We are REGAN, a five piece rock 'n' roll band from Bradford, blowing the Yorkshire music scene away with their huge hooks and riffs, singalong choruses and their awesome electric live performance! Heavily influenced by Guitar driven Indie Rock n Roll from bands such as The Enemy, Oasis, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Sterephonics, Foo Fighters, Manic Street Preachers etc
There are a lot of emerging artists in the UK right now. What sets you apart from the rest?
We believe our songs set us apart from the rest. We believe in what we write and know we have huge choruses and hooks that are so easy to latch on to and sing along and lyrics that are easily relatable to the every day life of so many young people right now. We are also massively driven and determined to succeed, which only benefits us in everything we do.
What’s your back-story?
Again back to our songs, we write about things that happen to everyday people in every day life. Whether it be relationships, going out and having a good time, having issues with various things in life that can bring you down, our songs are so easy to relate to that anybody can easily feel as though they are part of the songs themselves. We primarily write though to try to make people sing or dance, or both, and just make sure everybody is feeeling alive and having a good time at our gigs.
What are you working on at the moment?
We have two more singles due to be released over the coming few months, and then it'll be back to the studio to record some more. There are also some big gigs coming up along with festival season, so its looking pretty exciting for the foreseable future!
