Formed as teenagers in 2006, The American punk rock band consisting of; vocalists and guitarists Greg Barnett, Tom May as well as bassist Eric Keen and drummer Joe Godino have shown their strength as rough-and-tumble storytellers, turning out songs equally rooted in frenetic energy and lifelike detail. On their new album Hello Exile, the Philadelphia-based punk band take lyricism to a whole new level and their introspections on moments from the past and present: troubled relationships, highschool misdemeanours, alcohol ageing and political ennui . Although revealing certain painful truths, Hello Exile ultimately maintains the irrepressible spirit that’s always defined The Menzingers.
