Since 1972, The Residents have produced a remarkable run of singles, classic albums and off-the-wall projects defying categorisation.

Produced with The Cryptic Corporation, “80 Aching Orphans” includes rare recordings, live versions and exclusive extracts and edits, and is packed with photographs and insightful commentary.

The Residents’ most recent album, The Ghost Of Hope, received critical acclaim and proved their appetite for innovation and musical exploration hasn’t diminished, forty five years after their first release.

Extensive promotion across social media – The Residents have approximately 100K followers at facebook.com/TheOfficialResidents and a dedicated fanbase across the world. We also expect excellent print media coverage – comment from the artists and all relevant imagery and information is available by request.

The Residents will soon embark on the ‘pREServed’ archival album reissue series, including previously unheard material, b-sides, rare recordings and extensive sleevenotes.
