The Menzingers Announce North American Tour Dates

WEDNESDAY MAY 9, 2012

Band To Tour with Bouncing Souls

Fiery punk infused rock band The Menzingers are set to embark on an exhilarating North American tour along with the rousing New Jersey punk band, The Bouncing Souls. The Menzingers will also play in New York City with Hot Water Music. The band continue to attract fans and attention with their high energy inspirational sound featuring powerful melodic guitars, rock steady drumming behind heartfelt anthemic choruses and impassioned poetry of the street lyrics.

The band recently released their anticipated Epitaph-Records debut album On The Impossible Past which received outstanding critical acclaim. The album 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 sonic arsenal.

Acclaim For On The Impossible Past:

4.5 Stars - Alternative Press

9.5/10: Rarefied Air – Absolute Punk

“Awe-inspiring third outing from Pennsylvanian punk 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
