The Regrettes announce new album, CT and MA tour dates scheduled

The Regrettes announce new album, CT and MA tour dates scheduled

L.A. power-pop outfit The Regrettes have announced their highly-anticipated sophomore album, How Do You Love?, set for release on August 9 via Warner Records. The infectious, guitar-driven first single, “I Dare You” is out today, along with an official video. Listen to the new track and pre-order the forthcoming 15-track album HERE now, as well as at the band’s official store here. To coincide with the forthcoming release, The Regrettes have confirmed North American summer and fall headline tours, with the just-announced fall dates for “The How Do You Love Tour” on sale this Friday, June 21 at 10am local time. A full list of dates is below.

How Do You Love? is an album about the most universal of emotions: love. Throughout the record, 18-year-old frontwoman Lydia Night details the rise and fall of a relationship—from that first rush of butterflies, through a destructive break-up, to ultimately finding peace and closure. Night, who wrote the vast majority of lyrics, begins the record with a spoken-word poem, diagnosing the listener as being “infected” with a “love disease.” Throughout the album, it becomes evident that The Regrettes are infected, too—but that’s not a bad thing. The band hopes that the album will provide “the cure,” by showing listeners that no matter how they’ve experienced love—whether it’s romantic, platonic, or self-love—they’re never alone.

Night came up with the idea after writing a group of songs about her experiences in various real-life relationships. She states, “I realized that they all fit together and tell a story. It’s about finding bravery through [love]… learning and accepting that, yes, you went through a shitty breakup, but that’s amazing—because all that means is next time you’re in a relationship, you know so much more about yourself and about what you want.”
