Groovy. Heavy. Psychedelic. — These are three words that have been used time and time again to describe Nashville based, 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."
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.
While navigating their way through a global pandemic in 2020, Spirits Republic managed to stay busy and released four singles that have received raving reviews and significant airplay. After returning to the stage in the summer of 2021, they began debuting the numerous new songs that were written collaboratively during the COVID lockdown. 2022 saw the release of some of this music, as three pairs of EP's, Ambivert, Bicardial, and Cothymia.
In 2023, Spirits Republic shows no signs of slowing stating in reference to their new music, “We have stepped into a space of creativity that keeps changing and evolving at an exciting pace!” May 19th saw the release of their new EP "Sleeper" featuring the hard-hitting single "Brain Poke."
