Regret The Hour
Comprised of brothers Nate McCarthy (lead vox/guitar) and Ben McCarthy (lead guitar) with childhood friend Anders Fleming (drums), and recent addition Tim Emmerick (bass), Regret the Hour cut their teeth playing live in New York City and their hometown of Nyack, New York before even finishing high school. By their senior year the band amassed tens of thousands of plays on YouTube fueled by their DIY demos and air-tight live show. This grass roots support funded their first full-length record, "Better Days," which they tracked in a now demolished plastics warehouse.
Tragically, during those recording sessions, the band lost their beloved friend and bassist, Jesse Yanko, to stage-four soft tissue cancer at the age of 16. After a period of mourning the band released "Better Days" in 2013. With the help of a few temporary bassists, they resumed live shows with a renewed vigor and half of the proceeds from record sales have since gone to cancer research.
Following their freshman year of college, the band returned to the studio to record their upcoming EP, "The Far and the Near." For the sessions they connected with engineer D. James Goodwin (Kaki King, Devo, Norah Jones, the Bravery) and arranger/orchestrator/bassist Sammy Oatts (Hudson Hank, Jesus on the Mainline, James Levy and the Blood Red Rose, Guy Berryman of Coldplay). In those sessions, the band crafted an artistic statement that shows their profound growth into adulthood.
Regret The Hour's sound swirls with chiming guitar melodies reminiscent of early U2, and a heavy, yet subtle rhythm section gaining frequent comparisons to The National and The War on Drugs. The band's energy and reputation as a live act has earned them packed nights at NYC's finest venues, including Music Hall of Williamsburg, Rough Trade, Mercury Lounge, and the Gramercy Theatre, as well as appearances alongside punk legends The Misfits, rock n' roll hall of famer Dave Mason, and indie pop sensation Best Coast. The band is currently working on a new, full length record in Brooklyn, NY.
