“OH MY LIFE! These guys are savage heavy”
Alex Baker – Kerrang! Radio
” …metalcore at its most infectious”
“…punches and soars in all the right places”
“…impassioned melodies and neck-snapping fervour.”
THECITYISOURS reveal their brand new single ‘Dangerous’, a stylistic experiment showing an additional edge to City’s sound, wrapping catchy pop choruses in driving beats, and encompassing honest lyrical content about feelings of empowerment from pushing forward to make the best of a bad situation.
The track is taken from the band’s sophomore album COMA set for release 22nd October 2021, via Arising Empire.
Speaking on their new single, guitarist/vocalist Mikey Page remarks: “When writing this record, we really wanted to blow the doors of gate kept genre boundaries wide open. We believe art should be about expression of thoughts, feelings and values however you see fit, without fear of judgement.
Dangerous was born through this mentality. Collating ideas we had whilst removing the hand break of “what if?” We wanted to create something that empowered the ideology of being true to yourself no matter what and the lyrical content really reflects the excitement and freedom we felt through embracing the process.
We were keen to try something new with the visuals to truly embrace this ethos, so what better way than to throw stereotypes to the wind and create an independent wrestling promotion as a vessel to carry this message. You’re perfect just the way you are, so don’t let anybody tell you otherwise.”
COMA was recorded, engineered and mixed by long-time collaborator Oz Craggs (FEED THE RHINO, NECK DEEP, MALLORY KNOX) at Hidden Track Studios and mastered by Ermin Hamidovic (ARCHITECTS, PERIPHERY, NORTHLANE) at Systematic Productions.‘
