PiercingMetal Thoughts: It’s not often that I use the term “future of Rock” when it comes to the bands that I see on numerous tours but I lean on that when it comes to the overall vibe that I get from a Citizen Zero show. The group is solid and gives you a great time with energy that you can feel is completely legit when they are performing. Their appreciation of the crowd is authentic and if you catch them as an opener you will always find them around the merch table looking to meet their fans. I’ve witnessed this so its true. Their also very nice dudes so I’m happy to bring this tour to your attention. Provided I’m in town and not on holiday when they hit NYC you can count on me being there. So what do you think of this latest announcement? Are you following the band or are you waiting on one of the famous deejays to get around to playing them for you? If you answered the later, just open Spotify to get on board with what I’m selling you. I’ve no time to waste yours and I think after twelve years you can trust me. See you next time.
