New album "Outnumbered"!
The Foreign Resort, the outstanding post-punk trio from Copenhagen, are releasing their new album Outnumbered on Toronto-based Artoffact Records this spring on April 5th!
Says band founder and frontman Mikkel Borbjerg Jakobsen, "Outnumbered" is about us, being part of a large minority, watching how the corporate world has convinced large parts of the European and American populations that immigrants are stealing our money and committing crime while it is really them, the mega rich, who are taking everyone’s money and setting us up against each other."
The Foreign Resort combines the shadowy mysticism of The Cure’s Pornography era with a driving production aesthetic akin to LCD Soundsystem. Intricate reverb-enveloped guitar lines glide over Steffan Petersen’s motorik bass and Morten Hansen’s powerful drumming, all while Mikkel Borbjerg Jakobsen’s taut and sincere vocal delivery demands your attention.
The Foreign Resort have toured relentlessly, addicted to the allure of America’s lost highways, sharing bills with bands like Cold Cave, DIIV, The Soft Moon, She Past Away, The KVB, Slowdive, Minor Victories, Ash Code, and many more. Since 2010, the band has been rigorous in playing more than 420 shows across North America and Europe, with performances at several festivals including SXSW, Iceland Airwaves, Wave Gotik Treffen, Canadian Music Week, POP Montreal and Nocturnal Culture Night.
