‘Calling The Dogs’ is set for release on October 06.

The first taste of the new LP comes in the form of the terrific, nostalgic-sounding track ‘If You’re Lonely’.

The track is an introspective number that delves into lead singer Mat Kerekes’ own self-discovery.

Have a listen via its video below, which depicts a classic suburban neighbourhood setting.

Reflecting on the song’s emotional basis, Kerekes has said: 

“I grew up around a narcissistic parent and absorbed a lot of that behaviour over time, negatively affecting people close to me.”

“‘If You’re Lonely’ is about recognising that, growing from it, and becoming a reliable shoulder to lean on.”

As well as a new single and album announcement, Citizen have revealed plans for a UK headline tour, taking place throughout February next year.

The band will be playing four special headline shows in the UK with support from Drug Church.
