Citizen is a punk/indie band that hails from Toledo, Ohio. With some of their members still in high school, to date they've released "The Only Place I Know", a split EP with local friends The Fragile Season [Either/Or Records], which was met with great reviews. Their song "Tracking Time" was included on the compilation "Vs The Earthquake", released after the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan in early 2011.
The band released their debut EP, entitled "Young States" (recorded by Jay Maas at The Getaway Recording Studio), digitally on September 1st, 2011 and will be releasing the 12″ LP in January 2012 via Either/Or Records and UK-based City Of Gold Records.
Signing to Mightier Than Sword at the end of 2011, Citizen will also be entering the studio in mid-January to record two tracks for an upcoming split with Virginia Beach, VA-based Turnover, to be released Spring 2012 via Mightier Than Sword/Broken Rim Records. With infectious melodies and a passionate live show, Citizen is poised to be a name you won't soon forget.

The Southern California six piece made a name for themselves this year releasing their first single "Cry for Me" which was met with universal acclaim gaining more than 900,000 plays since it's premiere and charting the Top "Most Popular Tracks" on Hype Machine. HUNNY began as a solo effort from front man/lead guitarist Jason Yarger who brought the music to his long time collaborators Jake Goldstein on guitar and bassist Gregory Horne who helped cultivated the early sounds of the band. The project went on to include third guitarist Jacob Munk, keyboardist Kevin Grimmett and drummer Joey Anderson who rounded out the outfit and established the unique blend of pop & 80's post punk.
Their debut EP "Pain/Ache/Loving" was done with producer Eric Palmquist (Bad Suns, Trash Talk) where the band channels a wide array of influences, blending post-punk tendencies with their love for classic artists like Prince and The Cure. The result is a lovelorn themed EP that paints a colorful picture of heartbreak and frustration through angst driven anthems like their new single "Natalie".
