About Citizen Zero

A thoughtful and hard-hitting modern rock quartet based out of Detroit, Michigan, Citizen Zero employ an engaging mix of honest, homespun rock & roll and arena-ready alternative rock/post-grunge that's drawn comparisons to Stone Temple Pilots, Theory of a Deadman, and Kings of Leon. Founded in Rochester Hills in 2010 by siblings Greg (bass), John (drums), and Matt Dudley (guitar) and vocalist Josh Mayle, the band quickly caught the ear of Kid Rock's recording engineer Al Sutton, who whisked them into his well-regarded Rustbelt Studios and recorded their eponymous 2011 debut EP. Tragedy struck the following year with the death of eldest sibling Matt Dudley, positioning the group at a pivotal crossroads. Deciding to forge on, the band brought virtuosic guitarist Sammy Boller into the fold and headed back to the studio to finish up their sophomore EP, 2012's Life Explodes. High-profile gigs alongside Kid Rock, ZZ Top, Halestorm, Royal Blood, and Highly Suspect followed, and in 2013 Citizen Zero nabbed a Detroit Music Award for Outstanding Rock/Pop Recording. In 2016 Citizen Zero inked a deal with Wind-Up Records and issued their much-anticipated debut studio long-player, State of Mind. ~ James Christopher Monger
