Decivilize / Bio

"(DE • CIV • I • LIZE)

To reduce from civilization to a savage state.

To become less civilized."

“Civilised life, you know, is based on a huge number of illusions in which we all collaborate willingly. The trouble is we forget after a while that they are illusions and we are deeply shocked when reality is torn down around us.” - J.G. Ballard

"Every man has a wild beast within him." - Frederick the Great

As technology and society advance, mankind's true nature becomes more repressed and sanitized. We find ourselves funneled through modern life amidst a maze of increasingly confined velvet ropes, yet we are truly more lost and directionless than ever. As our autonomy diminishes, how long until words such as 'mystery', 'discovery', 'exploration', and 'freedom' fade from our consciousness altogether?

There remains only one question...
Are you ready to DECIVILIZE?

Hailing from Wisconsin and formed from seasoned veterans of the Midwest music scene, Decivilize is making waves and peeling paint from venue walls wherever they roam. Decivilize's music flawlessly integrates raw unbridled passion with cold machine-like precision, and is sure to leave your ears ringing and your soul craving more.
