Johnny Foreigner - 2 unheard albums on their site!

Johnny Foreigner

Birmingham trio Johnny Foreigner have announced the official digital release of two albums via their website www.johnnyforeignerband.com.

Both LPs were recorded before their debut, Waited Up Till It Was Light. which was released in 2008.

The releases, available today, coincide with their previously announced new EP due to be released through Alcopop! Records in November. The band will be touring the UK around that time, with Stagecoach in support. Before that, the band head off on their first ever North American tour, opening up for Los Campesinos! over three weeks in October.

Both ’we left you sleeping, now gone’ and ’everyday is a constant battle’ have been secretively shared amongst fans for years, but the newly released versions come with a slew of new and additional tracks, comprehensive liner notes and photos from the period.

The records chart the band’s progression from their alt-country tinged slow burning origins to the acclaimed furious art pop outfit they’ve become today.

Additionally, the three piece have made available audio and video from their performance at The Garage, London this July as part of the Wichita Recordings 10th anniversary parties, and have also released an expanded tour EP from February 2009.
