Citizen – I Want To Kill You

In 2009, Mat Kerekes and brothers Nick & Eric Hamm formed Citizen in Toledo, Ohio. Originally born from the hardcore circuit, they also incorporated post-hardcore, emo and โ€˜90s alternative in their sound. In 2021, theyโ€™re a tight and ambitious rock band.

Itโ€™s been over three years since Citizen released their latest album As You Please. In the meantime, front man Kerekes hasnโ€™t exactly sat still. He put out his solo album Ruby in 2019 and, as recent as 2020, the EPโ€™s Amber Park and Songs For Breanne. Also, he built a studio in his garage. There, his band recorded its fourth long-player Life In Your Glass World. Itโ€™ll come out on 26 March.

I Want To Kill You is the albumโ€™s first single. Opening with a ferocious four-to-the-floor beat, itโ€™s big, sharp and full of hooks. For Kerekes, I Want To Kill You greatly sums up the overall themes and sounds heard on Citizenโ€™s new album. โ€œSometimes you feel like youโ€™re being usedโ€, he says. โ€œA lot of the lyrics are liberating, theyโ€™re reclaiming control.โ€
