BRADFORD band Regan are going from strength to strength, with three new songs ready for release this year.

The five-piece indie rock band - Aaron Regan (vocals), James Murphy (backing vocals/guitar), Jack Smith (drums), Tom Clayton (bass) and Jamie Hirst (guitar) - are taking the regional music scene by storm with their huge hooks and riffs, singalong choruses and impressive electric live performances.

Their first single of 2018 will be released over coming weeks and they'll be showcasing new material at a series of gigs.

Regan are gaining a following across Yorkshire and have played at venues including The Underground as well as local events including the recent Kazoopa Festival in Leeds and North Parade Street Party in Bradford.

Band members Aaron and James also helped to organised the Musicians Against Homelessness event in Bradford last September, bringing an array of solo artists and bands to city venues and raising £2,152 for homeless charity Crisis.

Now Regan are through to the SoundWaves Music Competition regional final and will play at the O2 Academy in Leeds.

And 2018 looks set to be even busier for the band, who are keen to help organise a follow-up to the Musicians Against Homelessness event. Last year's day-long event was headlined by Justin Sullivan and Dean White from Bradford rockers New Model Army, and the line-up featured other local artists including Katie Ellie; Dave McKinley; Northern Comfort; Palace Motion; The Voodoo Bats and Where Fires Are.

Musicians Against Homelessness (MAH) was launched by Oasis guru Alan McGee, to host benefit gigs nationwide for the homeless. “There's a stigma with homelessness but the reality is that a lot of people are living on the edge," said Aaron. "Last year's event was a big success in Bradford. Hopefully there'll be another one."

* Regan are at the Frog & Parrot, Sheffield, on January 18, O2 Academy Leeds for SoundWaves Leeds on January 20, 360 Event at The Library/Lending Room, Leeds, on February 9 and West Street Live, Sheffield, on March 1.
