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 ‘90s alternative in their sound. In 2021, they’re a tight and ambitious rock band.

It’s been over three years since Citizen released their latest album As You Please. In the meantime, front man Kerekes hasn’t exactly sat still. He put out his solo album Ruby in 2019 and, as recent as 2020, the EP’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. It’ll come out on 26 March.

I Want To Kill You is the album’s first single. Opening with a ferocious four-to-the-floor beat, it’s big, sharp and full of hooks. For Kerekes, I Want To Kill You greatly sums up the overall themes and sounds heard on Citizen’s new album. “Sometimes you feel like you’re being used”, he says. “A lot of the lyrics are liberating, they’re reclaiming control.”
