February 14, 2017 (Burbank, CA) - LA-based punk act The Regrettes have announced a headlining tour for Spring 2017. The 17-date tour kicks off March 9 in Stockton, CA and includes stops in Chicago, New York, Boston, DC, and Toronto, as well as Austin for SXSW. A full list of dates is below, with tickets for all shows available for purchase this Friday, February 17 at 12pm EST on TheRegrettes.com. Alongside the tour announcement, the band has shared an all-new live video for their song, "Seashore,"filmed at the band's recent album release show. Frontwoman Lydia Night says:
"The live video caught a moment of the show where I dedicated the song to Trump. I wanted everyone in the audience to know that it's important to be who you are and stand up for what's right, even during this divisive political climate. Lyrically Seashore is an expression of that."

With the release of their 15-track debut album Feel Your Feelings Fool!, The Regrettes have established themselves as a leading breakout band, earning buzz from Stereogum,BUST, NYLON, Brooklyn Vegan and more for what LA Weekly praises as, "the sound of young, socially aware people sharing their frustration and elation with heavy energy and a no-fucks-given attitude." The band has toured with such leading acts as Sleigh Bells, Kate Nash, Peaches, Cherry Glazerr and The Frights.
The Regrettes is composed of Lydia Night (vocals & guitar), Genessa Gariano (guitar), Sage Chavis (bass) and Maxx Morando (drums), who have dominated the Los Angeles punk rock scene since forming in 2015. Night leads the group with a bashful, blunt attitude reminiscent of Debbie Harry and Joan Jett, drawing listeners in to the band's infectious - and unapologetically honest - punk-driven pop songs.
Further Praise for The Regrettes
"The Regrettes deliver it all with a retro-infused enthusiasm. Nary a putdown or a kiss-off is delivered without a winning melody or soaring harmonies."
- LA Times
"Their music sounds like a lively blend of lo-fi surf rock meets The Strokes with a strong female lead-a combination sought by many but well executed by few."
"the track's real barbs can be found in its lyrics and Night's confrontational, DGAF delivery, as she takes on all detractors and critics who've dismissed her over the years simply because of her age and womanhood"
- Consequence of Sound
"LA quartet the Regrettes make an infectious brand of punk with '50s and '60s pop leanings, and they beam with a youthful exuberance and raw vulnerability that result in deceptively provocative songs."
"While The Regrettes are still fairly new, it's clear that Night and her crew are a swiftly developing force to be reckoned with."
"The Regrettes kick serious ass in every single respect."
