DEBUT RELEASE FROM IRISH/SWEDISH CELTIC PUNK WARRIORS SIR REG
The eagerly awaited first release from this exciting progressive punk band from Ireland and Sweden is finally here. With their self titled 8 track disc "SIR REG", they offer an overdue insight into their progressive Celtic punk universe.
For a band barely a year in existence, SIR REG has achieved perhaps more than most bands do in a decade. The ambitions of Dubliner Brendan Sheehy and his longtime fiddler accomplice Karin Ullvin fell into place with the formation of the band and the recording of this fine debut. The band have received both national and international acclaim from DJs and critics alike the world over with their tunes getting heavy rotation on radio stations from Sweden to the USA. Irish Radio New York described them as "the hottest new band in New York", a fact which amused the band as they'd never even played there.
"If this band doesn't get more attention than they've
received so far then the world is an unfair place."
- Skrutt Magazine
"Now how did I miss this? SIR REG contains all of the
Swagger and Celtability found in Flogging Molly and
Roaring Jack, rolled up into one tidy package!"
- Christopher P. Toler, Shite’n'Onions
"Pure Quality! SIR REG has just as much stage presence
as Bruce Springsteen and his Seeger Sessions Band."
- Karl David Englund, Bärgslagsbladet
"An irish-style folk punk band from Sweden, not quite
different from bands like Flogging Molly, only better. "
- Oftblog, One for the Birds
"SIR REG are influenced by bands like Flogging Molly
and DKM, but SIR REG is a better band than Flogging
Molly and Dropkick Murphys."
- Micke Ström, Schizo Distro
