Citizen’s As You Please reports from ground zero of an epidemic. Two years removed from their previous Run For Cover LP, Everybody Is Going To Heaven, Citizen’s perspective is far less sublime. As You Please is a confrontational record, incapable of turning a blind eye toward the inescapable strife. And so, songwriter Mat Kerekes pursues the source of discontent that is ravaging his Rust Belt city of Toledo, Ohio with the band’s most dynamic record to date.
As You Please showcases the growing versatility of a band seven years deep and still restless. Citizen has churned and ground out their own unique foothold within the greater context of alternative rock. Written over the course of a year, the record is devoid of the brutish and sinister elements found on Everybody Is Going To Heaven. Here, Citizen go beyond their early grunge contrasts and strive for something benevolent.

Formed in late 2015, four-piece Honey Lung came on to the alternative rock scene in a storm.Influenced by the likes of Smashing Pumpkins, My Bloody Valentine, Dinosaur Jr, and contemporaries such as Alex G and Yuck!, they bring together fuzzy, driving bass lines, thunderous drums, soaring guitars and melodic, introspective vocals into one brew of nostalgic 90's-esque alternative rock with a modern twist.
Honey Lung released their debut EP, 'Kind of Alone' with RYP Recordings in November 2016. The single off the EP: 'Something' was chosen as John Kennedy's 'Xposure Big One', and has been played, along with the second single 'End of Time', on his Radio X show, where they also went for a recording session and live interview. They were also BBC London Introducing's featured artist of the week, as well as having being featured in Louder Than War, The Metro Online and Line of Best Fit.
Most recently, they became a four piece, with Jamie Batten on vocals and guitar, Charlie Gardner on guitar, Omri Covo on drums and newcomer Kerstin Resander on bass. They will be taking a short break to record a new single and B side during the winter of 2016/17, returning for more in the new year.
