News : Northlane release new single “Citizen”

By on March 20, 2017

Sydney metalcore band have unveiled their latest single, “Citizen”. The new track was recorded by David Bendeth (Bring Me The Horizon, A Day To Remember, Paramore) at his studio in New Jersey, and was filmed by Jason Eshragian who has previously worked with Northlane on the “Intuition” and “Impulse” videos. Check out the new video in the link below.

“Citizen is a song that was written about the First World police state and our willingness to live under the watch of those in power, for their means, while those who blow the lid on it suffer,” explains Northane guitarist Josh Smith. “Writing this one was quite a mission, we went through five completely different sets of lyrics and the final incarnation of the song was the eighth revision. It took a lot of work but we are proud of it and beyond excited to share it with you all.” 

“Citizen” follows on from their previous track “Intuition” which was revealed as a surprise gift for fans during their headline set at UNIFY 2017. Northlane will continue to hit festival stages throughout 2017 with appearances on the main stage at Download Festival (UK) and Hellfest (France). The band will also play at Vainstream Rockfest (Germany), Jera On Air (Netherlands), Graspop (Belgium), Dissonance Festival (Italy), Rock For People (Czech Republic), Resurrection (Spain) Hammersonic (Indonesia) as well as Big Pineapple Music Festival here in Australia.
