ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This band of misfits have been bringing their brand of floor-stomping Celtic punk rock to clubs all over California and beyond for the past 4 years. While their sound is rooted in traditional Irish folk, the 7 members of The Mighty Regis inject a variety of influences into their music. Most often likened to The Pogues, who lead singer Franky refers to as "The Old Guard", TMR also draws inspiration from such bands as The Clash, NOFX, Johnny Cash, The Clash, Bad Religion, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, The Misfits and The Police. Its members having made ends meet in Hollywood via all manner of artistic endeavors, the entertainment value of their live show pairs perfectly with their tight musicianship. They have a rare ability to dissolve any demographic or musical genre lines and make instant fans of any crowd no matter the venue.


Formed in Los Angeles in 2007, TMR landed an early residency at Molly Malone's pub, best known for launching the career of their friends Flogging Molly. After playing countless gigs all over southern California, the band began to spread their sound by striking out on DIY tours up and down the west coast, on the east coast and points in between. Countless music festivals followed, bringing the band further out of pubs and into clubs, and as the band's lineup changed in small ways their sound progressed by leaps and bounds. They were honing in on something special, finding their own specific balance of traditional Irish and modern punk that would set them apart from other bands in the burgeoning Celt punk genre. The buzz quickly translated into a spot on the 2010 Vans Warped Tour, putting the band in front of its largest audiences yet all over the U.S. and Canada. Something of an anomaly for an unsigned, unsupported act, spending well over a month on Warped proved to be the band's strongest testament yet to its cohesion and determination.


A Japanese distribution deal with Uncleowen Records and plans to get in front of exponentially more fans all over the world in 2011 has the band scratching their heads as to how they've gotten so far with no help - be it management or record label - on their own soil. A relentless work ethic and utter refusal to beg for handouts are at the heart of it and have gotten them a very long way. Featured not only on FuseTV but also 'Live! With Regis & Kelly', the band have a magnetic, infectious dynamic whether they're rocking a stage, doing press or waking up on a bus in some creepy parking lot. 'The Reege' continue to plow forward making lifelong friends and fans every stop of the way; and they're coming for you next.


Sláinte.
