“Balancing melodic composure with heavy outbursts is a constant challenge for bands like this, but Citizen sounds like it knows exactly what it wants to do.” –Billboard

“One of the most ambitious albums to hit the scene… The record’s hooks and catchiness [are] manifested in way more shapes and colors than what came before” –Noisey

“Arresting… Folding in overcast guitar lines and largely taming their vocals to more breathy coos pushes them just a little closer to the downtrodden realms” –SPIN

Citizen is streaming their highly anticipated sophomore album Everybody Is Going To Heaven today via SPIN.  The record is officially out June 23, 2015 via Run For Cover Records but is available for purchase for a limited time for $5 on Run For Cover’s Bandcamp. Pre-order for Everybody Is Going To Heaven is available via Run For Cover Records.
Recorded with Will Yip at Studio 4, Everybody Is Going To Heaven presents the most fully realized version of the band to date in spite of it being their most dissonant and chaotic material they have ever written. Members Nick Hamm (guitar, vocals), Jake Duhaime (drums), Ryland Oehlers (guitar) and Eric Hamm’s (bass) contributions are celebrated through an abrasive atmospheric core that oscillates between unforgiving and nurturing, while singer Mat Kerekes careens between distress and violent bliss, tackling a variety of heady topics.

Between the Billboard-charting debut Youth and near constant touring, Citizen have been busy. From wrapping up a headlining North America tour, selling out venues everywhere from New York to Los Angeles, then dominating their first UK/European headlining run, the band has sold over over 20,000 copies of Youth. Citizen just returned from a headlining Australian tour and will be appearing on the Journey’s Stage on the entire 2015 Vans’ Warped Tour this summer (all tour dates below).
