Alternately seen as a rock band, an art collective and a spirit, THE RESIDENTS have been regarded as icons in the world of experimental music for over forty years. 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. In addition, the group is also thriving in the world of digital media having released ten DVDs, and two internet series.
From 2010-15, the group celebrated its 40th anniversary with a trilogy of tours — The Talking Light, Wonder of Weird and Shadowland — performing as Randy, Chuck & Bob, the World's Greatest Residents’ Cover Band. 2017 has seen the group release The Ghost of Hope, their 44th studio album, and, regroup as a classic four piece combo. Performing In Between Dreams, the group’s new touring show, the current lineup celebrated its debut at the prestigious Blue Note jazz club in Tokyo in early 2017. The Dreams’ performance is currently touring Europe and plans to tour America in April of 2018.
