Civil Youth is the independent, Alternative/Rock band based out of Philadelphia, PA. Since their first show in March 2015, Civil Youth has toured nationally and is currently venturing on their 6th U.S. tour.
After the release of their debut album, “Disguised In Color”, Civil Youth has gained air play on 134 FM radio stations, sync licensing with major networks including MTV, VH1, and E!, national press in Alternative Press Magazine, and has released their second full-length album, “Who Rescued Who”, as well as an acoustic album, “Ossein”.
What started as an outlet for lead singer, Michael Kepko, to express his anxiety and depression while living in Boston, has evolved into a cultural movement backed by a community of thousands of supporters who identify with Civil Youth’s lyrics and music. Civil Youth inhabits each stage with light-up drum solos, crowd chanting, instrument swaps, and stage acrobatics. Between heavy guitar riffs, and poetic rapping, fans of all ages can find a way to connect with Civil Youth. Within a year, Civil Youth has surpassed the caliber of “local band”, and has established their name across the United States.
