Win! Tickets To Regurgitator's 2024 Australian Tour


Last month Regurgitator released 'Invader', the tenth studio album from the Australian experimental champions and genre chameleons – another sonic chapter depicting their lasting legacy on the indie-DIY scene.

"We're an old-school band," guitarist and co-frontman Quan Yeomans says. "The album just makes sense to us somehow, and in the current musical environment nothing really makes sense. It's just getting weirder and weirder out there.

"I watched a video about developments in AI before I went to bed the other night and had an existential crisis. I will say, even though there was a lot of hard work that went into this album, it was also the most I've ever enjoyed the work and been satisfied by being in the zone of making it."

Fans were given their first taste of the album earlier in 2024 with the release of 'This Is Not A Pop Song', the band's first new song in nearly six years (excluding their children's album from 2019) and their first-ever collaboration with the one and only Peaches.

A mix of dance-punk and electro-funk, it doubles down on the eccentricities of both artists – who have been kindred spirits since they met at the Big Day Out in 2002. "We've always had this connection," Yeomans says. "I really wanted to work with an artist of that calibre who also has that longevity.

"She's an amazing, incredible performer and we've been fans of one another since day dot. I really appreciate everything she's done – I saw her show again last year at Northcote Theatre in Melbourne, and she's still just so awesome."

The album also sees Regurgitator working with Minjungbal/ Gudjinburra rapper JK-47 on the track 'Dirty Old Men' and – perhaps most unexpectedly of all – an Apalech author and academic named Tyson Yunkaporta on 'The Bastard Poem No-One Wanted'.

The band are currently in the middle of a 21-date run with shows still remaining in Margaret River, Perth, Fremantle, Wollongong, Newcastle, Sydney, Adelaide, Canberra, Albury, Byron Bay, Gold Coast, Brisbane, Mackay, Townsville, and Cairns.
