Scranton / Philadelphia natives, The Menzingers have been turning heads in the punk world over the last few years. Their latest LP, Chamberlain Waits, was named one of the top punk records of 2010 by tastemaker sites such as Punknews.org, Absolutepunk.net & Exclaim.ca as well as gracing the cover of AMP Magazine. In the same year, they also supported The Gaslight Anthem, Against Me!, NOFX & ANTI-FLAG across US/CANADA. All of this culminated with the band signing to punk rock powerhouse label Epitaph Records in 2011. Label founder, Brett Gurewitz commented on the signing: "These guys play the kind of pure punk rock that I grew up with. They are seriously talented songwriters and I'm happy to welcome them to the Epitaph family. I think the band is a great fit here." Currently, Menzingers are wrapping up the writing of their Epitaph debut to be recorded in September by Matt Allison (Alkaline Trio, Less Than Jake, The Lawrence Arms). The band will spend the summer touring on the VANS WARPED TOUR and then head to UK/Europe for some majoe festivals such as Reading/Leeds, Highfield, Area 4 and others.
