About Us

Cannonballing into the scene, Civil Youth left their roots in Philadelphia to quickly take on the rest of U.S. (Independently) “You remind me of…” “How do you have so much energy on stage?”, “You guys are so different, but I love it!”. Fans and critics alike can’t quite put Civil Youth into a genre, and they’ve loved it ever since their start in 2015.


Civil Youth finds a way to fuse heavy guitars, electronic synths, Pop vocals, and fast rapping, into a song like no band has yet. At least not like this… After 8 national tours, sync placements in outlets like MTV & VH1, opening for Twenty One Pilots, Awolnation, & Grouplove, people are starting to see why these Philly boys are worth watching. Civil Youth’s highly anticipated 3rd full-length album is set for release on May 19th, 2017. You need to take notice why people can’t stop saying “Civil Youth is the next big thing”.

::We’re in this together::


The name "Civil Youth"

Mike got the name Civil Youth from the non-government organization, Civil Defense. That organization helped Americans in the case of a military attack of any sort,  by providing fallout shelters. We wanted to emulate that concept of being a band that helps others through our art and our music. To become a faction of people who cared for one another, to not think any one person is better than the other. We are here for you, and we want you to use our music to see that you’re not alone.
