New album Johnny Foreigner vs Everything released November 7th, Gigs in London and Birmingham on 12th and 13th November
Special edition pre-order album package comes with comic and exclusive t-shirt
Speaking about their new album, guitarist and singer Alexei says: "We are bursting with excitement to be able to start talking about our wonderful record. It was made this spring and summer in our hometown by our old friend Dominique James, and will be released november 7th on Alcopop. it's going to be called Johnny Foreigner vs Everything.
"We started writing it two years ago, and staggered recording and mixing over 5 months. The title came first. This is the first full length record we've made without a Grammy – nominated producer, without contracts and New York and professionals. The biggest challenge we've faced as a band, and the worst thing about leaving the world of corporate-funded labels, was knowing that sooner or later we'd come to this point; having to make a way better record for a way worse budget… and I'm beyond proud to say that I think that’s exactly what us and Dom have achieved. We've made the record that sounds like we do in our heads."
