Bio

Regionals are a punk/emo band hailing from Sydney’s inner west, featuring former members of The Mission in Motion, who are gearing up for the release of their 2nd EP, ‘Teenage Seance’ in May 2020.

United by a love of mid-90’s emo, punk & grunge music they formed in 2016 and spent 18 months writing, rehearsing and coming up with ridiculous song titles before entering the studio with engineer Dylan Adams (West Thebarton, Horror my Friend, Oslow) to record a double A-side single in July 2017. Their first single ‘Piss & Biscuits’ was added to high rotation on JJJ Unearthed radio and saw Regionals added as a JJJ Unearthed feature artist.

Having continued to develop their sound, which included buying more guitar pedals than any person would actually ever need, they hit The Brain Studios in June/July 2018 to record their debut EP, ‘Sentimental Health’ with Clayton Segelov (Corpus, Endless Heights, Sleepmakeswaves). On the back of this release, Regionals have been playing shows around NSW including supporting artists such as Pianos Become the Teeth (USA), Red City Radio (USA), Jacob, Strangers, Fear Like Us and Have/Hold.

Having spent a large part of 2019 writing their most ambitious set of songs as yet, Regionals once again bunkered down in the Brain Studios to track the new record over the last few months of the year. The result is a darker and heavier hitting record that brings in more experimentation and instrumentation into their throwback sound.

The grit and strength of a Luca Brasi style sound with a noisy '90s feel.
