Lee Corey Oswald Releases Regards

What do you get when you take a classical music teacher, a philosophy student, a nanny/barber, and a professional poker player and stick them in a house in Northeast Portland. No, its not a house of mid-20’s retirees nor is it a Portlandia Skit. It’s the up-and-coming indie/punk quartet Lee Corey Oswald.

The band got their start in the vibrant and vivacious punk scene of Scranton PA, alongside bands such as Title Fight, Tigers Jaw, and The Menzingers, before relocating to Portland, OR in 2009. Though they inevitably drew influence from the laid back elements of a West Coast lifestyle and the indie/folk scene of Portland, their sound never shook that sense of emotional urgency and intensity that is so familiar with bands out of the Northeast.

After releasing a split with Scranton/Philly’s Three Man Cannon in the winter of 2012 the band toured the U.S., sharing the stage with The Lawrence Arms, Titus Andronicus, Title Fight, The Menzingers, La Dispute, Pianos Become the Teeth, Broadway Calls, Touche Amore and The Sidekicks among others.

In 2014 Lee Corey Oswald signed with No Sleep Records and released their new record Regards. Drawing influence from 90’s emo-esque bands like Weezer and Knapsack the record fuses punk and power-pop with intense emotional messages about life on twelve catchy, upbeat songs like “Snowglobe,” “Progress” and “Regards.”
