In all the excitement last week, we all missed out on BrooklynVegan's piece on the upcoming Residents album, Intruders.
BV has a preview track available which you can stream right now. (It's also included as a download if you pledge in the I AM A RESIDENT! campaign.)
The release date (Friday the 13th!) is nearly upon us, so we thought we'd give you a little peek at the packaging:
And for those who have ordered the autographed version from Cherry Red, those look something like this:
The Residents, long known as one of the most mysterious and reclusive bands of all time, are pleased to announce a new chapter in their lengthy and legendary career. A new door is opening and the name on that door is YOU!
After joining the I AM A RESIDENT! PledgeMusic campaign, fans will cross the line between passive consumption and active participation.

Also, the Cryptic Guide to the Residents and Beatles Play The Residents single were relisted due to the previous auctions not completing.
From 1972-76, The Residents, inspired by Federico Fellini, The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari and Betty Boop cartoons, dumped nearly half a decade of creativity into Vileness Fats, a film they expected to become the ultimate underground movie of all time. It was never finished.
Fast forward forty years, and The Residents are inspired again. Not to finish Vileness Fats, but to re-contextualize the original video into a brand new film, Double Trouble. In the new film, the time is 2023. Randy Rose, the group's singer has just died, and his son, Randy Junior, a Catholic priest, has come into possession of the original Vileness Fats footage, and finds that his life holds some strange parallels to that long-abandoned project.Watch the trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FtWS_Jtb68k
