You fall apart this is the new blood It’s the new blood, it’s the new blood Your weary eyes watch the new god As it burns hot, it’s the new blood The blackened sky falls onto ya It’s the new dawn; it’s the new dawn Drop under the weight cause you're a loser Now the door's shut, it’s the new blood Was it all a lie? You're left to wonder Was it all a lie? Her trembling voice, calling out your name "I'd just like to see you smile" A little girl, once she was afraid Now you're cowards in her eyes You fall apart; this is their new love Its the new drug, you will soon be gone You're wondering why it’s not your call Now it’s their shot Now it’s their shot You wonder Was it all a lie? You're left to wonder Was it all a lie?

Come into our aimless fight Joining us, our nameless pride Here they are, our lost endeavors Hunt the lie Is this what everybody's looking for? Suburban depression Your own private hell Welcome to our faceless lives Crawling down where we try to hide So are we Downfalleners Our time's gone We're lost And everybody's empty now Everybody's empty now Suburban depression Your own private hell Everyone wants it Suburban depression

Onto Us 05:46
You came back for the end of the season Came around to see what's down Stuck around for whatever reason You're the one to pull it off Turned shit many years ago But you're still here living the dream Hallucinations from the past Nothing is quite what it seems You gotta love it here buried in shit Try to dig it all out of the way Don’t look back, it’s ahead of you Use the shovel to pave your way All the looks, the happy smiles Crawl into your head And you enjoy this, the saddest of ways Bring it back let's roll again We're weak and we're down And they're onto us They crave this sound It belongs to us The silence is gone But not for long Their fashion is late So we carry on They're coming on Love is the reason  You know we're ready to burst Never knew this was the reason But they're all like cursed Mother love calls upon you Catch you before your burn This being the easy out We'll be gone

We can't hide it’s the middle of the night It’s kinda sad Lost sight in the middle of the fight It’s pretty bad Can't hide its the middle of the night It’s kinda sad Can't hide and you know it’s not right It’s really sad Can't sleep it’s the middle of the night It’s kinda sad Can't breathe and it hurts to fight It’s kinda sad We can't see till the end of the night It’s pretty bad Bleeding hearts living sleepless nights It’s all so sad You don’t know where You don’t know It’s the way it goes The way it flows Under bright neon stars Can't hide its the middle of the night It’s kinda sad Bleeding hearts living sleepless nights It’s all so sad Under bright neon stars Watch it all fall apart Hopeless and bleeding hearts There's no place for us
5.
It’s coming on It’s coming on Fly to fall A crash from the inside It’s coming on Like my darkest hour The loneliest heartache It’s coming on It’s coming on Piles of hope Lights up the horizon It’s coming on Carries me so proud And tears me apart Watch it coming on Watch it coming on Lights the dark Decay from the inside Watch it coming on Like a beautiful flower Just withering away Our heartaches collide Come around for fun Not falling angels We follow the sound The weak go down They're drained and crawling The dream came to an end Went well for some But most were just struggling Somehow we're all to blame They caught us lounging and They kept us off guard

REVIEWS:

“These Danish post-punk specialists transform their voluminous influences into an EP that possesses a singular fault: It is not long enough.” – SLUG MAGAZINE

“…it’s their new EP The American Dream that unquestionably takes the listener into “new frontiers” of electronic music infused with ’80s melodies and new wave punk.” – Elmore Magazine

“captivating post punk passion & 80s inspired new wave romanticism – fully charged with radiant guitars and intense vocals” – 50THIRDAND3RD

“Post Punk par excellence.” – DeepGround

“If you only listen to one song today, make it “Under Bright Neon Stars” by The Foreign Resort (2015, from the forthcoming EP The American Dream).” – this is that song

“…einen sehr dichten, durchproduzierten, kontrastreichen und geschmeidigen Sound, wo Melancholie und Spannung, eingängige Melodien und noisige Momente zu einem Stil werden.” 8/10 – Pretty in Noise

“Post Punk par excellence.” “…genau richtig für eine postpunkige Playlist zwischen den Lichtern der Stadt.” 4/5 – DeepGround

Among the 2015 Top 10 Albums at Billyphobia and 88.1 KDHX, St. Louis DJs Top 10 Albums of 2015
