Groovy. Heavy. Psychedelic. — These are three words that have been used time and time again to describe Nashville based Alternative/Experimental Rock band, Spirits Republic… a band that is known to deliver a fun, fresh slice of progressive alt-rock and has been cited as being, “dynamic”, “unapologetic” and “like Led Zeppelin mixed with Smashing Pumpkins with a hint of early Red Hot Chili Peppers and Primus.”
Spirits Republic is made up of Russell Somer (lead vocals/guitar), Perry Dornbush (drums) and Ricky DeMeo (bass), all originally hailing from the Northeast (New York and Massachusetts) and now based in Nashville, TN. The three-piece came together in the summer of 2016 and quickly began working on original music that would be included on their debut album, “Hourglass.”
From a young age, all three members of the band experienced the adrenaline rush of Rock N’ Roll and to this day they aim to make music that caters to what they personally love about listening to their favorite bands — interesting changes, catchy choruses, and dynamic genre blending within each song. Thriving in the party element, every show they play is high energy and unique with spontaneous set-list changes and improvisations that involve the crowd.
While still navigating their way through a global pandemic, Spirits Republic managed to stay busy and released four singles that have received raving reviews and significant airplay in 2020. After returning to the stage throughout the Summer and Fall of 2021, 2022 is set to be the band’s biggest year to date. They just released three pairs of EP's, the first of over a dozen brand new songs written during the Pandemic. Their latest release is titled, "Cothymia"which they will be supporting on the road this Spring and Summer.
The band stated in reference to their new music, “We have stepped into a space of creativity that keeps changing and evolving at an exciting pace. These songs will be our best yet!” Subscribe to their YouTube Channel today and keep your eyes out for the new music & videos coming your way soon!
