Originating from the Greater Boston area, Last Regret began with drummer Lazlo posting a simple ad on Craigslist for hard rock/metal band members in August of 2007. A reply came in the form of guitarist Joe Howanski. Together, Laz and Joe wrote a number of songs that would eventually become the foundation for Last Regret. Several more rounds of ads were posted until guitarist Colin ~Axxxwell~, vocalist Josh Monds, and bassist Dana Robarge joined the carefully crafted band. Initially a group of strangers brought together by the power of Craigslist, the band soon became a tight-knit brotherhood.
While paying homage to the band's influences (Korn, Slipknot, Sevendust, and Black Label Society among countless others), Last Regret crafted their own sound instead of simply imitating or rehashing their heroes' material. The group's ass-kicking music is a potent mix of modern hard rock and metal that could easily be featured on radio or any other media outlet. Indeed, Last Regret makes heavy music that is accessible to all, whether they be a hardcore headbanger or a casual rock fan. Above all, the band's unpretentious songcraft is infectious with its solid grooves and provides melody amid maelstrom in the new generation of metal.
Since the band's inception, Last Regret has received a number of accolades such as number 1 Metal Artist on ourstage.com for September 2008 ("Once More"), number 2 Metal Artist at ourstage.com for October 2008 and March 2009 ("Sincerely"), featured artist of the month for April 2009 at Indie's Top 10 Rock in Cincinnati, Ohio, and has opened up for Papa Roach at Oxxfest 09 and Otep at Rock the Ink 09.
Adding to their list of achievements, Last Regret recently released a 3 song EP titled "Unbroken", which is available on iTunes and other online music stores. With their undaunted focus and determination, the band continues to write ruthless melodic music and perform as much as possible. It's clear that this Craigslist band is ready to take on the world.
