It all started off in the year 2000 in Ocean City,
Maryland when Lower Class Citizens were
formed. Tyler, James, and Ryan all started off by
playing guitar and eventually decided to pick up
other instruments in order to form a band. Soon
after James bought his first drum set and Tyler
picked up the bass, the jamming began in
James's garage. The trio started off by playing
simple punk covers like "I wanna be sedated" by
the Ramones, and "My Generation" by the Who.
Then started to experiment with original sounds.
"Spliff Glow" was the first written song by Lower
Class Citizens and is still a favorite.
After jamming in James's garage for a few
months, the decision of obtaining another guitar
player came about. Lower Class Citizens were
looking for an explosive sound, a guitar player
that could defy the rules of playing the
instrument, and finally stumbled upon Bill Todd.
Bill joined Lower Class Citizens having a good
background of music, playing with former bands,
First Things First, and writing songs for Orange
Avenue. After a few practices, Bill fit the mold for
a Lower Class Citizen.
The addition of Bill Todd made Lower Class
Citizens a dynamic foursome, with more ability to
innovate their sound with an extra guitar player.
In the summer of 2003, Lower Class Citizens
decided to go into the studio and record their first
EP titled "Electric Euphoria" at Clay Creek
Studios in Newark, Delaware.
They've played a variety of local spots including
Mellow Beach, Talbot St. Cafe, Battle of the
Bands, White Horse Park, and a hell of a lot of
house parties. Lower Class Citizens have also
played at Maryland Institute College of Art, and
Clairon University.
Lower Class Citizens have also recieved substantial radio play, locally (WZBH, WRXS, WOCM)and nationally (XM Satellite Radio).

Class Citizens will be invading a town near you.
