Bio: Regular Gonzales is a Brisbane heavy metal band, combining bluesy riffs, intricate rhythms and harsh breakdowns, wrapped in a sludge metal blanket. In the vein of Every Time I Die, Converge & The Sword.
Starting out as a rockabilly four-piece and taking their name from an obscure Futurama reference, Regular Gonzales have been jamming and gigging since 2011. After releasing an album, an EP and a vocalist, they are cranking up the distortion, stretching their neck muscles and working on their new sound. The album WAR WERE DECLARED was released in March '17 and their latest single CHAINS dropped in early January '18.
Regular Gonzales are working on establishing themselves in the Brisbane scene, working with groups such as the SCHEMA Collective & Beats Cartel, as well as planning interstate shows later in the year to spread the word of THE RIFF. Their song BOMBRERO was also featured on ESPN as the music for a Real Wake 2017 wakeboarding v ideo.
