Regurgitator cult band returns to city

ATTENTION. This is not a pop show.  Alternative cult band Regurgitator is ready to ‘invade’ Cairns for one night of classic Regurgitator bizarreness at the Tanks this June.

The Tanks Arts Centre will host one of Australia’s most beloved alternative rock bands Regurgitator as they make a comeback with their latest album Invader, boasting hits like ‘This is not a pop song’ on June 22.

For their 10th studio album Invader, Regurgitator returned with their classic alternative rock and synthy sound but with a lot more craftmanship.

Bassist Ben Ely said this album was the result of two years of work.

“This album took a lot longer to record than most albums we’ve made, it took us almost two years to make,” he said.

“We hold ourselves to a very high standard, so we wrote for about a year until we came up with an album title and that helped us focus a little bit more on the songs. It’s our standard Regurgitator record but it’s probably more focused and we worked a lot harder on it.

“And as we get older we really appreciate the fact that we’ve had a very long career and such supporting fans over the last 30 years and we’re working harder on our live shows and we wanted to work harder on our recording as well.”

Mr Ely said it was exciting to return to a venue like the Tanks and perform for FNQ fans after years of not playing Cairns.

“We’re really excited to return to the Tanks. It’s an amazing venue and we haven’t been in Cairns for some years, so we can’t wait to play,” he said. “We’re touring with this big light show and our support band Party Dozen which are really amazing to see. They’re amazing.”
