RIYL: Against Me!, Bob and the Sagets, Iron Chic, Gaslight Anthem
Dunder Mifflin and Joe Biden aren’t the only good things to come out of Scranton, PA.
Why, there’s also punk rockers The Menzingers.
When they signed with Epitaph Bad Religion guitarist Brett Gurewitz wrote in the press release,
“These guys play the kind of pure punk rock that I grew up with. They are seriously talented songwriters and I’m happy to welcome them to the Epitaph family. I think the band is a great fit here.”
Now entering their second decade as a punk band The Menzingers are all grown up and asking questions like, what does it mean to be 30 and still in a punk band? For the Menzingers it sounds like age won’t negatively affect their output. Not this time around anyway.
This is the Indie store exclusive red vinyl pressing.
"WE'RE TURNING 30 NOW, AND THERE'S THIS IDEA THAT THAT'S WHEN REAL LIFE COMES ON. In a way, this album is us saying, 'we don't have to grow up or get boring.'" The Menzingers consists of Greg Barnett, Tom May, Eric Keen, and Joe Godino, and the Scranton, Pennsylvania band came together while the members were still in their teenage years. 5 albums later, the punk rock gang has kept its youthful energy, and After The Party brims w/ "anthemic harmonies," "furious power chords," and larger-than-life melodies. Check out "Tellin' Lies," which features a very catchy hook ("Where we gonna go now that our 20s are over?"), "Thick as Thieves," "Midwestern States," and the title cut. This is the indie exclusive, download card included.
