First pressing on limited edition Australian exclusive green vinyl!
The Melbourne-based five-piece CIVIC return with their visceral new full-length studio album, Taken By Force, out via Cooking Vinyl Australia.
The LP was recorded in the Castlemaine countryside with Radio Birdman front man Rob Younger producing, and was mixed and mastered by Mikey Young (Total Control, Eddy Current, Sonny & the Sunsets).
Taken By Force is CIVIC’s follow-up to their critically acclaimed 2021 debut full-length Future Forecast – an album of songs that showcased the band’s frenetic yet melodic sound coupled with introspective lyrics.
Taken By Force picks up where their debut left off, seeing CIVIC joyfully obliterate the line between furious catharsis and unbridled fun. It’s an album the band aptly sums up as “1984 meets Endless Summer.” CIVIC have reimagined the reckless intensity of proto-punk for an era of endless uncertainty to become one of the most exhilarating bands to emerge in recent years.
