There are two bands with this name: 1. Formed late 2008 in Manchester, UK, Citizens are pioneers of the new manchester not manchester sound. "Razor sharp post punk is the order of the day here with a dramatically distinctive guitar sound that prods and pushes songs into unexpected areas. Vocals boom and the bass is bombastic enough to turn each song into a danceable literate (see title 'we've read the books') diatribe. Original, dark and somewhat disturbing. And brilliant." -
