Regressive Left Share New Single, Announce Signing, and New EP

regressive left band 2022

Luton-based trio Regressive Left have returned – sharing news of their signing to new label, Bad Vibrations, and that their debut EP, On The Wrong Side Of History, is set for release on July 15th. Celebrating the news, the trio have also shared their first new track of the year, arriving in the form of Bad Faith – which features a vocal contribution from the Manchester-based, experimental pop act, Mandy, Indiana. 

Bad Faith picks up where last year’s Cream Militia and Take The Hit left off, with social commentary and the band’s dancefloor roots placed right at its core. Speaking of the themes behind the track, front-man Simon Tyrie states:


This song essentially focuses on the idea of deliberately assuming the worst of someone or something they’ve said or done. Social media has really amplified this trend: everyone has to have a take. So we read between the lines and make wild accusations on the faintest of evidence. It’s something of an art, but one that I think is ultimately detrimental to society.

Already, Regressive Left have built up a strong live reputation for themselves. This year so far the band have played alongside the likes of BODEGA and Folly Group – and now they have announced their first set of headline shows seeing the band on the road in late September.
