The PledgeMusic campaign for I AM A RESIDENT! closes in 14 days. Get in there while the gettin's good. Or wander in there while the wanderin's weird. However you like.
In Between Dreams continues to roll across Europe, and tickets go on sale today for the North American leg of the tour, which kicks off in Los Angeles in April. We hope to see you at one or more of the shows.

If you've been poking around on ticket seller sites, you may have noticed some Residents dates in North America in April of 2018. Well, they are true. We've collected venue and ticket info on our tour dates page: http://www.residents.com/tourdates
Tickets go on sale on Friday at 10am (that's local to the venue), so your plan of action is clear: buy tickets Friday, plan your days off from work, and save your pennies for the merch table because THE RESIDENTS ARE COMING TO TOWN!

Deep in a San Francisco basement, lost in time and space and long-forgotten by their masters, lay over a hundred tattered boxes containing master tapes, demos, curios and acres of unreleased material dating back to the early 1970s.
Beginning at the beginning - with Meet The Residents and The Third Reich N Roll to be released in January 2018 - and working chronologically through the mire, daisy-fresh sets of newly remastered albums and singles, live recordings, alternate versions and as much long-lost and unreleased material as The Residents' can bear to part with will be available for your purchasing pleasure.
As ever with The Residents, users are advised to expect the unexpected and put their faith in the unknowable.

If you're waiting anyway, perhaps you'd be interested in browsing some other releases, some already available and some coming soon: Bobuck - Egg Booty, Title in Limbo Special Edition, Frith/Fox - A Day Hanging Dead Between Heaven And Earth.
