In addition to the new two track @CITIZENtheband 7” that they’ll have out on their fall headlining tour, there will also be a 7” flexi version with the electric version of the new track ‘Silo.’ The flexi can not be purchased, if you want one you have to be one of the first 100 people through the door at the LA, NYC, or Boston shows of the tour. Good luck!

Anonymous said: Would you be willing to offer some quick advice for how to get your band noticed when you're starting out? I've been playing music for years, but every band I'm in always stumbles at the point of growing an audience after we book a few shows. I'm going to try again with a bunch of songs that I've been demoing recently, but I'd like to try to make it "work" this time for real. We live in a major-major market as well. What's the best way to get involved in our local "scene?"

Definitely don’t expect anyone to care after playing a few shows. I would keep practicing, keep writing music, keep trying to get better, keep trying to get better shows in your city and around your area, and if you’re good at all, people will start to take notice regionally. Don’t worry about touring, signing to a label, or releasing a full length for a while.

built-by-machines said: I think the person is asking why a band who is signed to Label A would come to you and say "hey, so we're releasing our next album in Label B, but we're still signed to your Label A." Are they not obliged to the label to which they are signed? That's what I assume, anyway.

I see. Often times bands are not legally allowed to release records on other labels, or at least need permission from the label they are signed to. Also if a band were to do this, it would 99% of the time be an EP, 7”, split, or just a smaller release in general, pretty much would never be a full length. A reason a band would want to release an EP on another label is because perhaps the second label has a different or larger audience than the label they’re signed to, which could in turn also help the label they are signed to because the band would get more exposure.

Anonymous said: Can't really think of an example Im just asking why? Like if one of your bands was like hey dude were gonna release an album with someone else what's the point? Why don't release it with you? Idk if this is making sense I hope so.

Not really sure what you’re asking. I’m sorry :(
