Run For Cover Records has released Young States, the debut EP from Toledo, OH indie rockers Citizen on October 23. Available on vinyl for the first time, the CD and digital versions will also feature the EP + bonus tracks.
The band have been busy touring this fall with the likes of Aficionado and Mixtapes. A trek with Such Gold, Mixtapes and Raindance is now underway and runs through November 3rd. On November 8, Citizen kicks off their headline tour, featuring support from State Champs and Candy Hearts. The run marks the band’s first time touring Canada. See dates below.
With influences ranging from Brand New to Knapsack to Sunny Day Real Estate, Citizen started in 2009 as a side project and came to full fruition in 2010. In 2012, the band recorded 2 songs with Will Yip in Conshohocken, PA which made up their side of a split EP with Virginia Beach’s Turnover. Soon after, the band signed to Run For Cover Records, graduated high school, and went on a full US tour with Turnover and Light Years.
Young States was recorded at The Getaway Studio in Boston, MA with Jay Maas (Title Fight, Defeater) and is now available on iTunes at: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/young-states/id571761246.
