About Us

     Civil Youth is the energetic, alternative rock band exploding out of the East Coast with their roots planted in Philadelphia, PA. Between electronic synths, soaring Pop vocals and heavy guitars, Civil Youth posses the blend of modern rock with the animalistic and captivating ingenuity of synth-based alternative music. Started in 2015, Civil Youth has since led eight national headlining tours and has opened for artists such as the inspired Twenty One Pilots, AWOLNATION, Grouplove, Mutemath, Phantogram, Capital Cities, Judah & the Lion and Catfish & the Bottlemen.


      Their latest album, “Conversations” was released on May 19th, 2017 and has caught the eye of Alternative Press, Substream Magazine and press alike.  It included the singles, “Let You In” featuring Emarosa’s current front man Bradley Scott Walden, and “Between Me & You” which was placed on iHeartMedia’s Radio 104.5’s 9th Anniversary Compilation CD alongside of consistent spins on both The New Music Discovery Show and Live on Air.


      Civil Youth has also had success with their sophomore album, “Who Rescued Who” having placements in outlets such as MTV and VH1. This record spun on 134 FM radio stations across the North America with overlapping stations picking up their latest release. Did we mention this was without label support?

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.
