Since the release of their debut album Youth, Citizen have become one of the leading names in pop-punk. Though their lyrics and photos may be flooding your Tumblr dashboard, Mat Kerekes shows that he’s more than the frontman of Citizen with the announcement of his EP and tour. It’s clear that Mat’s taking a different direction in the music industry with his solo project, and just by listening to “Forgiveness,” we catch an idea of just how different it will be.  And we mean different, in the best way possible.
