The Foreign Resort’s ‘American Dream’ EP to be re-issued, trio plays Cambridge this weekend


Last year’s American Dream EP by The Foreign Resort was one of the more slept-on releases of 2015. Unfortunately, that’s not entirely surprising, as the Copenhagen trio have remained one of the more underrated post-punk bands of the past decade.

Things fall into line a bit more favorably for The Foreign Resort in the coming weeks, as Texas-based label Moon Sounds Records will re-issue the American Dream EP on October 14, shining new light on a moody, atmospheric record that toes the line between dark, glitchy new-wave pop and familiar efforts by the usual ’80s underground heroes.

Tomorrow night, they start a North American tour in Philadelphia, and thanks to the booking efforts of Boston producer Andre Obin, the tour routes to Cambridge for a Saturday night (September 17) show at the Lilypad in Cambridge alongside tourmates Nite and Massachusetts’ dream-pop collective usLights.


Their current tour is the result of another successful crowdfunding effort by the band.

“That experience goes beyond anything we have done before and it’s so great when we felt that passion about our music and could share it with others,” says singer/guitarist Mikkel Jakobsen. “We have some amazing fans and we are so grateful for that.”
