The band’s new record LOW is out on 2 August.
THECITYISOURS have shared their jaw rattling new track If You Know, You Know taken from their forthcoming album LOW set for release on 2 August 2019. With the release of their debut album on the horizon, THECITYISOURS unleash a barrage of riff after neck cranking riff, that leaves you with the empowering knowledge… If you know, you know!
“If You Know, You Know is a ray of positivity, in an otherwise dark album, born out of the frustration of living with your own demons. In a climate dominated by social media, we often seek validation from others around us, usually from people who are in no way qualified to do so, yet it can be extremely frustrating when we are overlooked or judged by others.
This track is about standing by what you believe in and doing what makes you happy – regardless of what anybody else has to say. Learning to love yourself can be a challenging concept, but it’s impossible to help others, without looking after yourself. We wanted to highlight that despite all the challenges featured throughout LOW there is always a light at the end of the tunnel.” says Mikey Page.
On LOW, THECITYISOURS take an introspective look at mental health and self-betterment; combining heartfelt lyrics and impassioned melodies with a gigantic serving of neck cranking riffs. Recorded, engineered, mixed and mastered by Oz Craggs (Feed The Rhino, NECK DEEP, Mallory Knox) at Hidden Track Studios in Folkestone, Kent, LOW is a truly empowering record that will leave you ready to take on whatever the world throws at you.
“In a social climate where mental health, particularly in Males, is often treated as a taboo subject, we felt it was important to take an honest and sincere approach when putting this album together. These songs have been our coping mechanism for some of the most difficult times in our lives, but also a huge lesson that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, even in the darkest moments.
We wanted to empower the ideology that it is okay to be vulnerable, it’s okay to be honest about your emotions and nobody is alone in feeling this way, even if it seems that they are. We hope people can interpret these songs in their own way and experience the same comfort we have in creating LOW.” says Mikey page.
