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.

Mon 22 Oct 2018
Photo: Robin Pope Here’s a thing. Do you remember when Rod Stewart was cool? Probably not. It’s been over 40 years since Faces, the original lad-rockers, split. Perhaps you remember when Sting was cool instead, then? But once the Police went the same way as Stewart’s mob, their frontman launched a similarly disappointing solo career.
Alt-J - Reduxer (Album Review)
Mon 01 Oct 2018
Remix albums don’t always work. The best examples refresh and reveal elements of the original songs, giving them new life and often broadening their appeal. When they fail, it is often because the tracks lack the integrity and consistency of the source material.
