Recently signed to No Sleep Records, Portland indie-punk band Lee Corey Oswald has announced plans to release a new full-length album titled Regards on August 5th.

“This song is about people often thinking that being progressive has to mean being exclusive and narrow minded to other points of view,” explains Corey Ciresi. “This contradicts the meaning of the term “progress,” which means being open to other ways of thought and change, without exclusivity. The title of the album, Regards, is a sort of sardonic reference to the ironic politics of the underground and the term “punk.”


Comprised of a classical music teacher, a philosophy student, a nanny/barber, and a professional poker player, Lee Corey Oswald have crafted a collection of twelve intriguing indie-punk classics all on one record. The band’s clever, honest and thought-provoking lyrics combined with their 90’s-esque indie sound, recall bands like Weezer and Knapsack, while their contemporary edge adds a dash of grit to the musical landscape of Portland.


Regards was recorded analog on reel to reel tape, capturing the band’s spirit in the moment as they perform each track live to record.


“We love the  warmness it adds to the sound as well as the rawness that can’t be achieved digitally,” adds Ciresi.
