REGENT are back with the explosive new single “Beggars Belief” - out now. It comes as the Southampton indie-rock outfit today confirm the release of their second studio album of the same name, ‘Beggars Belief’, for release on 26 April 2024.


“You tell me something, some big fat porky pies. You think that I’m stupid, I see right through those lies.” seethes frontman Ben Rooke on “Beggars Belief”, his patent snarl at full lick here.

A political uppercut delivered with a knockout rock’n’roll punch, Regent’s timely new track is a state-of-the-nation address drenched in a seismic, feedback-scrawled score.

Sick to the back teeth of a UK Government veering from scandal to scandal and a practice of corruption and subversion becoming commonplace across the globe, “Beggars Belief” is a straight-up declaration that enough is enough. As Rooke explains:

“This track is a complete dig at the establishment and everything we believe or are told to believe… From the pandemic to wars, the cost of living crisis, to the mockery of the government, and how we the people have been treated these past few years. Corruption runs deep worldwide, not just in this country… I wanted to write a track that sums these times up.”

Compacting Rooke’s fury with a barrage of motorik beats, wormhole-warped guitars, and chugging riffs, “Beggars Belief” is one of Regent’s most bruising statements and exhilarating moments to date.

Following the recent singles “Flying High”, “Liberation” and “Oh No, I Know”, “Beggars Belief” arrives as the latest cut confirmed to be appearing on Regent’s forthcoming second album ‘Beggars Belief’, due for release on 26 April 2024.

Purveyors of an insurgent, no-nonsense brand of rock’n’roll, Regent, have forged a reputation as one of Southampton’s finest and fastest emerging acts.

Tackling widespread issues of political mistrust and economic struggles, to more introspective tracks homing-in on personal hardships to the joy to be found in relationships, Regent’s knack for relatable songs and hook-laden tunes has seen their popularity swell in recent years.

Riding high on a string of highly-charged single releases, the band delivered their acclaimed debut LP ‘Just A Revolution’ in 2022. Swiftly following it with recent EP ‘Believe’, the band supported the release with a number of high profile headline shows, festival slots, and supporting shows with notable acts like Reverend & The Makers.

On their journey to date, Regent have earned praise from the likes of Louder Than War, Earmilk and Gigslutz, and have gained radio play from Radio X, Frank Skinner on Absolute Radio, Amazing Radio and BBC Introducing as well as RTE2 in Ireland and SiriusXM in the US. The group’s gripping sound has also attracted attention across the world of TV and sport, with airplay on Soccer AM, Sky Sports Darts, the Premier League, BBC Six Nations Rugby, BT Sport and BBC One’s Match of the Day.

Intending to ramp things up to an all new level in 2024 and defy expectations at every turn, Regent will release their eagerly awaited new album ‘Beggars Belief’ on 26 April 2024. Stay tuned for more news from Regent very soon…
