The Menzingers release new song ‘The Freaks’
with music video

Philadelphia-based punk band The Menzingers have released a new song called ‘The Freaks.’ The Halloween-themed video for ‘The Freaks’ is also out now. Produced and mixed by Will Yip (Title Fight, Quicksand, Pianos Become the Teeth), ‘The Freaks’ is a dreamy midtempo track driven The Menzingers’ bittersweet melodies and full-hearted vocals. In the accompanying video, director Adam Peditto captures a freaks-only Halloween party, attended by devils and bumblebees, aliens and handmaids, vampires and wigged dogs. ‘The Freaks’ video also includes a variation of spin-the-bottle, in which a spun dagger determines the kiss recipient.

The Menzingers are about to embark on a headline tour of the US. With the band also playing THE FEST in Gainesville on Friday, the tour features Tiny Moving Parts and Daddy Issues as support.

Featuring singer/guitarists Greg Barnett and Tom May, bassist Eric Keen, and drummer Joe Godino, The Menzingers formed as teenagers in their hometown of Scranton in 2006, then later relocated to Philadelphia. The band made their Epitaph debut with 2012’s critically acclaimed ‘On The Impossible Past’. Arriving in 2014, their fourth album ‘Rented World’ was praised as “packed with clever songwriting” by The New York Times and “a colossal fist-pumper” by Stereogum. In February 2017, The Menzingers released their fifth and most recent album ‘After the Party’, hailed by Pop Matters as “a superlative set of authentic punk songs that stand as their finest achievement to date.”
