Johnny Foreigner

UK indie rockers Johnny Foreigner are currently touring North American and will play NYC tonight (11/6) at Glasslands with Motive and Rumors. Tickets are still available. All upcoming tour dates are below.

The group haven't toured this side of the Atlantic in a couple years. Maybe some of you, like me, caught them at CMJ 2008. I saw JF at a day party at Public Assembly and my main recollection from that show -- besides them being pretty good -- was that singer Alexei Berrow was absolutely drenched in sweat by the second song. They put their all into it. You can stream Johnny Foreigner's 2011 album, Johnny Foreigner vs Everything, below and is recommended for fans of Los Campesinos! (with whom they've toured) and other spazzy/anthemic guitar pop.

Album stream and tour dates are listed below.

Foreigner are great....I love that song "it feels like the first time".

Is this a solo project from their lead flautist?
