Ahhh, Boxing Day… Well, let’s forget the crowds and last night’s family dinner and get back to some good old pop-punk courtesy of The Region. The suburban Chicago band are releasing their brand new EP Everything I’ve Got tomorrow, but no need to wait all the way until then as you can hear it now! You can pre-save the album here and find more of their impressive and growing catalogue of songs via Spotify.

One of the real highlights for the band was collaborating with frontman Cory Castro of the group Free Throw, the well-known Nashville, Tennessee emo act. Commenting on the EP, the guys shed some light on the DIY process that helped bring these songs to light: “This EP feels like a big step up for us. We recorded and mixed Everything I’ve Got all on our own in a basement, and we’re really proud of how everything turned out. We hope others enjoy these songs as much as we do!”

Excited to hear Everything I’ve Got? Listen now:

Led by the brotherly duo of Jake Cyprian on lead vocals and guitar and Phil Cyprian on bass and vocals, they are backed up by the talented drummer Jon De St. Jean. Dynamic, heartfelt, melodic and sometime nostalgic, the trio delivers passion and energy, a quality that translates seamlessly between their live performances and recorded material. The Region are passionate about what they do and what they want most is for their listeners and fans to extract some of that passion for themselves in their own lives. With their EP release show coinciding with its live date tomorrow, it’s sizing up to be a lively year for The Region.
