Regents contains members who hail from some of the most influential hardcore bands of the 90’s including Maximillian Colby, Sleepytime Trio, Frodus, Men’s Recovery Project, Battery, and Combat Wounded Veteran.
Regents line up solidified around David NeSmith, Drew Ringo, Jason Hamacher and Dan Evans in the late part of last the decade. Drawing inspiration from years playing in basements, squats, and living rooms, Regents crafted four songs of pure ferocity laden with heavy hitting drums, distorted ringing guitars and blood curdling screams. Recorded by Joseph Mitra at Wired Wrists, the four songs they recorded were released as a 7 inch record on Lovitt Records. After several shows and a few weekend tours, Dan Evans left the band.
Regents regrouped with Lukas Previn (Thursday bassist) as the permanent replacement for Evans. Old friend and Sleepytime bassist Ben Davis periodically sits in for Previn when away on tour with Thursday. Davis joined the band in 2011 for North and South East US mini-tours.
Regents is currently in the studio recording a full length release for Lovitt with J Robbins, acting as both Engineer and Bassist for the album.
Plans for 2012 include tours of the West Coast, South East Asia and more.
