The eagerly awaited debut full-length, titled Youth, from Michigan’s Citizen will finally be released on June 11, 2013 via Run For Cover RecordsMTV Buzzworthy today premiered the first track from the record “The Summer” and made it available for free download.  Guitarist Nick Hamm explains why they chose the song, saying “We thought “The Summer” was a good meeting of Mat (singer Mat Kerekes) and my writing styles and it ended up being one of my favorites on the record because of that.”  The song can currently be heard and downloaded at: http://buzzworthy.mtv.com/2013/05/13/citizen-the-summer/

Since first meeting as midwestern high-schoolers in 2009, Citizen have emerged as one of the most promising young bands in the alternative rock underground today.  The band signed to Run For Cover Records in early 2012, releasing their EP Young States that year as well as a split with labelmates Turnover.  In February of 2013, Citizen entered Studio 4 with producer Will Yip (Title Fight, Circa Survive, Daylight) to record Youth, their debut full-length.  From the first note of Youth, the fuzzy, guitar-driven rock songs bleed emotion straight through to the album’s end (full tracklisting below).  Citizen have called on the ghosts of Brand New and early Nirvana, creating a sound that is familiar but immediately all its own.

Pre-orders for Youth are currently available via the Run For Cover webstore at http://bit.ly/YtFsg0 .  Make sure to catch Citizen this summer as they tour North America as part of the Vans’ Warped Tour (all tour dates below).
