We are BEYOND EXCITED to announce a super special collaboration with our current favorite overseas obsession: The Foreign Resort!
The Foreign Resort hail from Copenhagen, Denmark and play some of the best and most driving modern new wave/postpunk/shoegazey r’n'r that we’ve heard in quite some time. Their brand new full-length album, “New Frontiers,” hits the world with a digital release on February 24, and a BLVD LP/CD release soon to follow! A little extra bonus: an American tour in March, which includes a midwest leg with our own New Canyons! And speaking of… TFR’s upcoming “Alone” single (out 2/10) includes a special New Canyons remix… and it is KILLER.
They’ve shared stages with Swervedriver, A Place To Bury Strangers, The Raveonettes; they’ve released two incredible full-lengths and a handful of singles/EPs (check the Bandcamp and Soundcloud links below); they’ve toured relentlessly throughout Europe and the States; and their rise is only just starting! We gladly welcome TFR to the BLVD family– please stay tuned here and at our Facebook page for ongoing updates and news over the next few weeks!

On their 2011 EP, from The Big Takeover:
This is a too-short five song EP from these Denmark dynamos, it’s Swervedriving shoegazed Britpop with a nice goth edge. This band is epic! Remnants of Killing Joke and Joy Division lay in their wake as they pick up random sonic body parts left by bands ranging from The White Lies to U2…The slower movements, especially on “Heart Breaks Down,” are sparse, cold, and emotional, earth wrenching enough to make Ian Curtis smile. And then it explodes back into a rave down sound, speeding across new waved highways with vengeance”
