Formed in the early 1970s, The Residents have now been charting a unique path through the musical landscape for over 50 years. From far-out, experimental recordings to highly conceptual, innovative multi-platform projects, the band refuses to stand still, and continues to move in several different directions at once. But you already knew that.

Produced with The Cryptic Corporation, using archival material supplied by the group and their friend and collaborator Carla Fabrizio, this package takes a deep dive into the classic 2002 album – The Residents’ response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks, exploring loss, denial and grief as only they could. Remastered, expanded and packed with previously unheard music, including a disc of early instrumentals and vocal demos, ‘Demons Dance Alone’ pREServed sheds new light on the development of one of the band’s modern masterpieces.

pREServed for future generations - this is The Residents as we’ve always wanted to hear them, and the latest in a series of archival reissues that will continue throughout 2024 and beyond. Look out for forthcoming ‘Animal Lover’ and ‘Tweedles!’ sets, as well as the long- awaited ‘American Composers Series’ pREServed set and a number of special vinyl releases.
