Melbourne-based Rock band Civic released their album Taken By Force on ATO Records, and will be bringing their live show to stages across the US for the first time this Fall. The tour will include stops in New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Seattle and more, as well as appearances at LEVITATION Festival and Gonerfest. They have recently revealed new single Hourglass alongside an official video as a track that lyrically and stylistically finds hope in change.

Frontman Jim McCullough shares:

Off the back of Taken By Force we wanted to create something new, an evolution of sound for us. We’d dropped down to a 4 piece so already Lewis had more space to come through with his guitar parts, be more experimental, less chaotic; more defined. Lyrically I am touching on aspects of change, more specifically the process during change. Going through some kind of shit and sediment and coming out the other side; a hopeful development of a refined version. We start again.
