Metal Anarchy’s New Music Showcase: Exclusive Q&A With Citizen Rage

Time for the next edition of Metal Anarchy’s “new music showcase,” the feature where I introduce you to artists that readers of this site may find interesting. This time I have an exclusive Q&A with Citizen Rage.

METAL ANARCHY: Tell me a little about your band:

CITIZEN RAGE: Citizen Rage is a five piece punk/hardcore band that is pissed off, energized and we have no qualms with telling it like it is, we practice Positive Mental health and say no to racism, bigitry and ignorance.

METAL ANARCHY: Who are your main influences?

CITIZEN RAGE: Team CR draws influence from all over the genre sphere, some of us love old school thrash, death metal, punk rock, hardcore, and feed off those influences and love the godfathers that brought us here. We also go back and draw influence from blues gods like BB King or pop stars like Prince and Alicia Keys.

METAL ANARCHY: What is your latest release and why should readers of this site check it out?

CITIZEN RAGE: CR’s latest release was in 2020-2021 a 4 song EP “The Black EP” released on Wasted Wax Records. It’s a short heavy hitting EP discussing topics like, Racism, Bullying, sleep paralysis and heartache. Being our 6th EP and the last one before we got into the studio for a full length, it strikes an emotional chord with anyone paying attention to our current social climate.

METAL ANARCHY: What can people expect when they go to your live shows?

CITIZEN RAGE: Expect some P.M.A!!. If you’re having a hard day and need to scream it out, come to a CR show, if you’re having some mental health issues and need some place to get it all out, come to a CR show, if someone is picking on you or getting you down, come to a CR show. we are anti-racist, anti-bully all inclusive and we want to share our message with all the homies.

METAL ANARCHY: Where do you see your band heading in 5 years?

CITIZEN RAGE: Fingers crossed we can get out to the UK and get some tours under our belt over there, and getting down to the States side wouldn’t be too bad either.
