Citizen Zero-Go (Let Me Save You)!

I learned about this band from a friend and I have to say the singer’s (Josh LeMay) voice just took me by surprise. His voice grabs you right away and takes you on a journey through the song. Really enjoyed this one. The guitar solo is pretty sweet, too. They have a new album out called State Of Mind. You can learn more about the band here. I hope you like them as much as i do.



Last week’s Rockucation question: This band throws out another band’s albums during the song in which the band is named. Name the song and the artist who performed it and the band they mention in their song.
