More than a year ago, Calgary, Alberta based hardcore punk band CITIZEN RAGE released their EP “Pink”. They have regularly been playing live shows across the country. Video of “Silent Army”, the last track of their latest EP is premiered at IDIOTEQ.
Informs the band: “Silent Army is a song about strength in numbers. When people love and respect each other enough to work together and have each others backs, they can change the world. Because of this theme to the song, Citizen Rage decided that the video should include as many of their friends and family members as they could get in front of the camera. It’s a combination of live footage, candid shots, and shots of them with their friends and family screaming their rage straight into your face.”
Formed in 2013, CITIZEN RAGE is a hardcore punk band from Calgary Alberta Canada. Drawing influences from seminal acts like DRI, Madball and Good Riddance, as well as more modern bands like Ignite, Comeback Kid and Get The Shot, Citizen Rage make their own brand of hardcore to tear apart controversial topics in pursuit of social change.
On the strength of several western Canadian tours, 5 self released EPs, the band secured slots on festivals like Armstrong Metal Fest, Loud as Hell, East-Town Get Down, Lethbridge Deathfest and a headline spot at the inaugural Decimate Metal Fest.
After sharing the stages with bands such as DRI, Cro-Mags, Trapped Under Ice, Madball, Revocation and Dayglo Abortion, as well as upcoming show with California’s long-running melodic hardcore band Ignite, Citizen Rage are poised to unleash their first full length album soon. They hope to carry on spreading their message of positive social change through more tours and more recordings.
