CITIZEN RETURNS WITH NEW ALBUM ‘CALLING THE DOGS’

CITIZEN RETURNS WITH NEW ALBUM ‘CALLING THE DOGS’
Salad Days

Renowned alternative rock band Citizen is back with a sensational new single, ‘If You’re Lonely’ marking the first release from their forthcoming fifth album ‘Calling The Dogs‘ due October 6.

The accompanying video for ‘If You’re Lonely’ is captured through a nostalgic lens as it finds the band playing out of their garage while the suburban chaos of neighborhood politics ensues around them. With introspective lyrics and a heartfelt melody, the track delves into the personal experiences of lead singer Mat Kerekes who drew inspiration from a challenging upbringing and his own journey of self-discovery. Reflecting on the song’s emotional depth, Kerekes shares, “I grew up around a narcissistic parent and absorbed a lot of that behavior over time, negatively affecting people close to me. ‘If You’re Lonely’ is about recognizing that, growing from it, and becoming a reliable shoulder to lean on.” The single serves as a compelling introduction to Citizen’s new era. It’s a remarkable testament to band’s ability to reinvent themselves with every album. The forthcoming LP is the band’s most poignant body of work yet, as the record approaches themes of self-reflection, personal growth, and resilience. On ‘Calling The Dogs’, the band exemplifies that passionate songwriting and styling while stripping back to what they do best: guitar-driven rock’n'roll.
