In 2016, Morando told Modern Drummer, “Hey MD! I’m Maxx Morando, drummer of the Regrettes. I’m eighteen years old and have been playing drums since I was eight and joined the School of Rock in Hollywood.

It taught me to just play drums like I usually would, comfortably. It brought out some really great takes.
At the moment, I’m playing a three-piece vintage Rogers 1972 kit, with a Ludwig Acrolite snare and Zildjian cymbals. I use hickory Vater 5A sticks.
In 2019, Morando described the heavy touring schedule as a drummer for Liily to 4See, “Especially when you’re in Europe, cos we left for Europe for two weeks then we came back home, and we were home for maybe two and a half weeks, then we’re back in Europe, and it’s like the time, and it’s a lot of…”
