Friends long before band mates, Civil Villains spent many evenings discussing the music they loved before they decided to start making their own.
Their debut double single Pale Horse/Fallow turned heads, walking the tightrope between mathy alt rock and desert riffage. Having shared stages in London with listener, Tides From Nebula, Polymath, and Wild Throne, and played at Brighton Electric's The Alternative Escape, they toured North America in September 2016. This included headline shows in Toronto and Cambridge, and appearances at Mondo.NYC festival and Envol et Macadam Festival in Quebec City.
"Humble and talented, Civil Villains may still be young in their arc, but as their sound evolves it won’t be long before they get picked up" Broken Amp, 2016
