Civic Duty is a young band based in Washington, DC with a match lit under their asses. They have a variety of influences such as Mac DeMarco, Nirvana, and the Beatles. However, Civic Duty tries to create something new that anyone could enjoy.
In 2018, their close friend and frontman Raymond McGavin tragically passed away after the release of their debut album “Funny Sad Songs”. After almost a year and a half of recording, Ray had narrowed down his large variety of originals to the 17 songs he felt were the strongest and most unique for the album. Although Ray will no longer be playing with Civic Duty, the remaining members know he would push them to continue recording music and playing whatever gigs they could get a hold of. Civic Duty is pursuing their dream to bring a sound never heard before to the public. It is their civic duty to do so.
