Upon its release, Regal Vigor was heralded by The Straits Times' Richard Lim as "the boldest venture ever in the history of local recording", and Zircon Lounge as "the only local band who's got a firm grasp of what rock 'n' roll is all about". Zircon Lounge was also billed as "Singapore's Most Exciting Group", and their live shows were compared to the Velvet Underground's and called "the first time [in Singapore] that a band has gone out of its way to challenge the audience".
To promote the album, Zircon Lounge played a one-week stint at The Rainbow on Cuscaden Road, alongside American funk band New Joy and Australian group Cut Glass. Their live repertoire included covers of Joy Division's "Transmission" and Lou Reed's "Street Hassle".
In May 1984, Zircon Lounge was dropped by their label as Regal Vigor had only sold about 1,000 copies. In comparison, a Tracy Huang album sold an average of 50,000 copies.
