The Menzingers is a punk rock band from Scranton, Pennsylvania.

Biography Edit

The Menzingers formed in the wake of Scranton ska-punk bands "Bob and the Sagets" (featuring Tom May, Joe Godino, Eric Keen, and non-Menzinger member Curtis Ayers) and Kos Mos (featuring Greg Barnett, Adam Mcilwee of Tigers Jaw, and Leo Vergnetti of Captain, We're Sinking!). Their first release was a self-titled demo tape made in 2006, which made its way onto many top ten lists of that year.[1]

Their debut full length, "A Lesson In The Abuse Of Information Technology" (released on Go-Kart Records), was produced by Jesse Cannon. According to Cannon, "I record bands every day and almost all of them are missing something. The Menzingers have it all — the songs, the aggression, the heart, and the passion that most only dream of."

In 2009, the band released a 4-song EP titled "Hold On Dodge" through Red Scare Industries, their first vinyl release (including a 600-run olive edition.)[2] A bonus track for the EP titled "Kentucky Gentleman" is available through iTunes.

Early in 2010, the band did a brief stint with Anti-Flag. April 13th saw the release of their second full length, "Chamberlain Waits," through Red Scare Records. In March and April they also toured in support of Against Me!.
