Alternative Citizens is an alternative punk band from Anaheim California. Formed in February of 2017 the band has played some of the most popular venues in SoCal including: Chain Reaction, House of Blues, The GlassHouse, etc. Their sound comes from not just their inspirations (Fidlar, Misfits, Nirvana, etc) but also from their age and location.

The band includes Mason Ortiz (18, guitar and vocals), Aidan Ortiz (18, drums), Zachary Dickson (18, guitar and vocals) and Tom Palmer (20, bass). They write about their lives as young adults and how it is to be their age at this time in the world. This band mixes punk rock with catchy melodies and guitar riffs with underlying metal and surf roots. Their live shows bring a fast, loud, energetic vibe to their audience and are always excited to share that with a new crowd.
