Citizen Hollow is a rock band from the Norwood, Ontario area, formed in 2008. Their powerful rock riffs and catchy hooks easily get stuck in your head.
They quickly started getting exposure in the area playing many gigs in the Peterborough and GTA. Shows with some significant bands such as Gob, The Arkells, My Darkest Days, Art of Dying, Crash Karma, and Bleeker Ridge greatly helped spread awareness. "That helped us so much in gaining a local fan base. These bands were filling the bars we were playing at, so it got our name out there," said drummer Robb Crofts.
This past Christmas they had the privilege of going on a small tour of southern Ontario with their good friends from My Darkest Days. "We have to thank those guys for all the help they've been giving us; it helped us get better and get exposed," said front man Chris Millar.
In mid 2010, Citizen Hollow moved to the GTA into a jam house to get a solid set down. "This allowed us to get to work with no distractions and allowed to us to work with the guys from the My Darkest Days camp to better our song structure and dynamics," said Robb. "They know what they're doing." It was at this time when keyboardist Brandon Ptolemy and bassist Kevin Austin joined them.
Citizen Hollow is in the midst of recording their single track "What A Night" and are hoping they can release to radio stations across Canada by early 2012. "We are currently working on one track to bring it to its max potential; to take a big step in getting our name out there," said Chris. "We're pumped to get it released."
They are currently booking shows for summer 2012 to get the ball rolling early. "We're hoping to play as many shows as possible next summer. We want it to be a big one," said Robb.
So keep your eyes and ears open for Citizen Hollow.
