Band will preview their Alex Kapranos produced debut album at tonight's gig
Citizens will headline Club NME at London’s Koko tonight (May 4).
The hotly tipped London band will play the venue this evening as part of this weekend’s Camden Crawl. Doors for the event will open at 10pm (GMT) with tickets costing £5 in advance.
Speaking to NME, the band’s Tom Burke said of their plans for the show: “We’re looking forward to Club NME at Camden Crawl. Thom and Martyn [Band members] went to university in London so they know what Koko is like on a Friday night. We can’t wait to see it from the stage.”
They continued: “We had our first stage invasion in France the other day, so we hope the Londoners can literally step up. We’ll crawl around Camden this weekend, since it’s rare to have all the other new bands together in one place.”
Citizens! will release their first LP ‘Here We Are’ on May 28. The 11-track LP was recorded in Scotland last year with Franz Ferdinand frontman Alex Kapranos acting as producer. You can see the video for ‘Reptile’ by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.
Next Friday (May 11), Retro Stefson will be performing at Club NME, while the following Friday (May 18), Concrete Knives will be taking to the stage for a live set.
