The Menzingers have confirmed that their seventh studio album ‘Some Of It Was True’ is due out on 13 October 2023 via Epitaph Records.
Vocalist and guitarist Greg Barnett commented, “Written over the last two and a half years in hotels, backstages, basements, and rehearsal rooms and recorded during a life-changing retreat down south, ‘Some Of It Was True’ is the most realized version of what we set out to do when we started this band 17 years ago—have fun and be ourselves.”
The Philadelphia punk rockers have also shared lead single ‘Hope is a Dangerous Little Thing’.
Following the release of their last studio album, 2019s ‘Hello Exile’, The Menzingers presented an acoustic re-work of the record entitled ‘From Exile’ in 2020.
Gregor Barnett also went on to release solo record ‘Don’t Go Throwing Roses In My Grave’ in 2022.
‘Some Of It Was True’ was produced by Brad Cook (Bon Iver, The War on Drugs, Waxahatchee) at Sonic Ranch studio in El Paso, Texas and was mixed by Jon Low (Taylor Swift, The National) and mastered by Ryan Smith (Coldplay, Smashing Pumpkins). The full-length will also include recent single ‘There’s No Place In This World For Me’.
