Foreign Legion - Light At The End Of The Tunnel REB1024

Foreign Legion from Wales was formed in 1984 out of the ashes of Dead On Arrival (est 1983). Despite various lineup changes, the band always kept it's own sound and style. Although coming from an Oi! background, the band always used lots of punk rock influences which resulted in a style which will appeal to fans of bands like the Angelic Upstarts, Menace and of course the Clash.

During the band's thirty years of existence, they released four full-lengths including the album What Goes Around Comes Around, which was produced
by Mick Jones from The Clash. Furthermore, the band released a split album with their friends from Major Accident and numerous split EP's. Also,
the band released several demo tapes and contributed to many compilation albums.

So far the band has played in 15 different countries, and they are the only Welsh band to ever play at the legendary CBGB's in New York.

Despite this track record, slowing down was never an option for the boys. In recent years, the band has shared the stage with the Cockney Rejects, Guitar Gangsters, Control, The Warriors, GBH. The Ruts, Stiff Little Fingers and many more. Also the band has performed al festivals such as Back On The Streets, Punk & Disorderly (both 2013) and next summer the band will again perform at the Rebellion Festival.

Their latest album - Light At The End Of The Tunnel - is a co-release by Rebel Sound (USA) and Aggro Beat (Europe). To promote the new album, the band will play throughout mainland Europe in Spring 2014.
