We still write album reviews? You’re damn right we do! Though it’s been a bit of time (okay maybe a lot of time), we do still like to talk about music and the full album experience. We currently live in a very “right now” society where things need to deliver fast and immediately, but the ATH team still loves a great record. This review of a great record features Scranton, PA based The Menzingers and their new album Hello Exile. Hit the jump for some words and thoughts.
I’m not sure how we let these things happen, but it seems we have never shared any of the stellar music created by Philadelphia based band The Menzingers. I think some of it is due to other sites beating us to the new tunes, or maybe we are just not as with it as we used to be. Either way, today we remedy the situation by loading heaps of praise on this banging new track from the band called “Strangers Forever”. For me, it’s kind of like the expertly crafted post-punk/emo songs crafted by bands like Jimmy Eat World with grittier vocals like Laura Jane Grace. It’s a nice evolution and updated sound a genre devoid of bands doing anything new. Personally, I love this stuff.
The Menzingers will release new album Hello Exile via Epitaph on October 4th.
