Citizen have announced that they will release their highly anticipated sophomore albumEverybody Is Going To Heaven on 22nd June, 2015 via Run For Cover Records. The band revealed the first single of the album, “Cement” today on Noisey. Marrying gloom and beauty with the confrontational lyrics of singer Mat Kerekes, “Cement” is just the first taste of a record that represents just how far Citizen have come since the release of their wildly popular 2013 debut LP Youth, which helped to put the band on the map as one to watch. Pre-orderfor Everybody Is Going To Heaven is available today via Run For Cover Records.
Listen to “Cement”
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.
