Philly outfit The Menzingers have released new single ‘Come on Heartache’, which – you guessed it – deals with all matters close to the heart.
The new track features on the band’s forthcoming seventh album, ‘Some Of It Was True’, which arrives October 13 via Epitaph.
It arrives with a music video shot at Pennsylvania’s historic Lynnewood Hall, featuring cinematic scenes of the band performing in various locations across the property.
Have a watch and a listen to the beautiful new track below.
And today’s a big day for The Menzinger fans out there: not only have the band dropped their new track, but they’ve also announced a headline tour of the UK and Europe in January and February next year.
The tour will commence in Amsterdam on January 24 before dates in the likes of Berlin, Vienna and Paris; it’ll then proceed to the UK where it’ll include two nights at London’s Electric Ballroom.
By that stage, The Menzingers will be playing from their soon-to-be-released ‘Some Of It Was True’ LP.
Discussing the new record and its creation, its Grammy-nominated producer Brad Cook has said:
“The Menzingers are as real as it gets. I had an absolute blast working with these guys and was moved to tears many times.
“They are truly dedicated to artistic growth, and to each other, in ways I found both refreshing and beautiful. I am now a lifer.”
Vocalist and guitarist Greg Barnett, meanwhile, has shared:
“This record just feels different for us,”
“It’s a really important one in our catalog, and a pivotal moment in our history.
“We have the liberty of our fans growing with us now, and after writing these lyrical songs about where we are in life, we decided to take other peoples’ stories and make something bigger out of it.”
