Hello ExileThe Menzingers

Philadelphia-based punk band, The Menzingers will release their sixth studio record 'Hello Exile' on October 04 via Epitaph. The videos for the first two singles from Hello Exile titled "Anna" and "America (You're Freaking Me Out)" can be watched below.

The album arrives as the follow-up to the band’s 2017 critically acclaimed release 'After The Party', which debuted #19 on the Billboard Top Current Albums Chart and #67 on the Top 200. In creating the album, the band again joined forces with producer Will Yip (Mannequin Pussy, Quicksand), spending six weeks recording at Yip’s Conshohocken, PA-based Studio 4. “That’s the longest amount of time we’ve ever worked with Will,” notes vocalist Greg Barnett. “We wanted to make sure these stories didn’t get lost in the music, so we kept it to a lot of room sounds with the guitar and bass and drums.” Pre-orders for Hello Exile are available here.

On 'Hello Exile', The Menzingers take their lyrical narrative to a whole new level and share their reflections on moments from the past and present: high-school hellraising, troubled relationships, aging and alcohol and political ennui. With the band achieving that soul-baring intimacy all throughout the album, 'Hello Exile' emerges as The Menzingers’ most emotionally daring work to date.
