“This song is about people often thinking that being progressive has to mean being exclusive and narrow minded to other points of view,” explains Corey Ciresi. “This contradicts the meaning of the term “progress,” which means being open to other ways of thought and change, without exclusivity. The title of the album, Regards, is a sort of sardonic reference to the ironic politics of the underground and the term “punk.”
Regards was recorded analog on reel to reel tape, capturing the band’s spirit in the moment as they perform each track live to record.
“We love the warmness it adds to the sound as well as the rawness that can’t be achieved digitally,” adds Ciresi.
