The Menzingers Soundtrack A Halloween Party In The Video For New Track The Freaks

Tuesday, 23 October 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

The Menzingers have released a new single, The Freaks.

The track was produced by their regular collaborator Will Yip, who also helmed their recent surprise single, Toy Soldier, and 2017's 'After The Party' album. The song's video, meanwhile, is the work of Adam Peditto.

The Freaks is a classy example of the Menzingers in ballad mode, with Tom May taking the lead on some reflective, nostalgic lyrics, and a guitar solo thrown in for good measure. What else do you need? Fill your boots below.

Head here to check out our ‘After The Party’ interview with May's partner in crime, Greg Barnett, and here to check out a recap of the band's recent show with the Lawrence Arms and Lagwagon in London.

Jeff Tweedy - WARM (Album Review)
Thu 13 Dec 2018
Jeff Tweedy’s first collection of solo songs adds up to a gentile album of warm Americana that stumbles along in joyous reverie and elegant inebriation. It’s a fine turn from the Wilco frontman, whose band’s 25 year musical catalogue has sometimes fallen flat, but whose previous album—2016’s ‘Schmilco’—seemed to reinvigorate and freshen their sound. These good vibes have continued on 'Warm'.

Fri 14 Dec 2018
td#right {display:none !important;} Illustration: Sam Davies   The train is late. The trains are always late. Table the lost minutes. I absent-mindedly scroll Twitter in a glass shelter as the December cold gets its claws in. Before skipping over a review of the latest Jungle Book remake I’m stopped mid-feed by an autoplay video. Julia Roberts dances in a subway carriage for the New York Times. She grins, the plastic chairs smile back with yellow and orange teeth. The sound is off—my headphones are still playing Hop Along’s Not Abel. The weird thing is, that song won’t yield the floor. Instead it steps in to lead.
