The Menzingers New Album Out Today

Rising punk rock band The Menzingers have just released their highly anticipated new Epitaph Records debut album On The Impossible Past. The early reviews from across the globe are already heralding the record as a genre defying breakthrough and future classic, with Absolute Punk saying the record has “transformed them into a band of great American storytellers that not only deserve to be mentioned along with the best in the scene, but deserve your actual, undivided attention.”

On The Impossible Past was recorded at Atlas Studios with longtime collaborators Matt Allison (Alkaline Trio, The Lawrence Arms) and Justin Yates. The record retains all the raw vital energy of the band's earlier output, while adding some powerful new twists to the group’s absolutely inspirational literary-minded melodic punk sound.

Early Acclaim For On The Impossible Past:

4.5 Stars - Alternative Press

9.5/10: Rarefied Air – Absolute Punk

“Awe-inspiring third outing from Pennsylvanian ounk poets” – 5/5 Kerrang!

"Simply put, On the Impossible Past is immediately gripping and accessible; as a listener, it is near impossible to avoid the hooks, melodies, and the ebb and flow of emotion present throughout. The deeply personal lyrics will evoke a heart-in-throat reaction with most listeners." - Sputnik Music

"They might use fewer chords, simpler riffs and less ambiguous lyrics than other more complex bands – but God damn, they say so much more." - Rocksound
