Citizens Unite w/ Mob Machine
Established in 2013, Citizens Unite is Vancouvers newest export of hard-edged rock. The driving force of long-time writing partners Kai, guitars and programming (Methods of Mayhem – MCA Records, Econoline Crush EMI, Nettwerk, Noise Therapy – A&M Records / Redline) and Paul DEath, vocals (Mushroom Trail- A&M Records), C combines hard rock with cinematic undertones and the grittiness of an industrial sound-scape. Hook driven vocals, layered guitars, groove laden drums and bass melded together with an electronic element, punches this band through the musical ceiling and is stirring up interest moment by moment. Drawing from numerous influences, Citizens Unites stamp on the market is cause for attention by all.
With Dave Benedict, bass (Default – EMI Canada / Universal Canada / The Orchard / TVT) joining the band on bass and new comer Cameron Belter completing the C line up early 2014, reuniting this rhythm section from a previous project some 14 years later, Citizens Unite has been writing and perfecting its roster of songs, including the musical energy pill Blacksheep, set for release early May 2015, the soaring melodic ballad Bullets and the stadium-crushing anthem Push. The band entered pre-production where they continued to fine-tune their vision.
Citizens Unite is currently recording with producer Danny Craig (Default, One Bad Son, 604 Records) and Dan Swinimmer (Jet Black Stare, Madeline Merlo, Beyond The Fall).
