The Residents are an American rock band, arts collective and spirit, regarded as iconic in the world of experimental music. In addition to their groundbreaking work in the areas of trance, world fusion, electronica, punk, industrial and lounge music, the group has also been credited with being among the originators of performance art and music video.
Their early videos are in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, and their Freak Show CD-ROM was featured in MOMA’s “Looking at Music 3.0” exhibition. Their four-decade-long career has also taken them into the world of film and television music, having scored numerous films and TV series as well as several projects for MTV.
Since their first official release, 'Meet the Residents' (1974), the group has released over sixty albums, numerous music videos and short films, three CD-ROM projects, and ten DVDs. They have undertaken seven major world tours and scored multiple films. Of their extensive discography since 1974, the most widely regarded as the best are 'Duck Stab' and 'The Commercial Album'.
After celebrating over 45 years of their career, The Residents are to tour the UK for the first time in their history with the In Between Dreams tour this February. Catch them live by checking out the tour dates and concert ticket information below on Stereoboard.
