Philly based foursome The Menzingers have shared a boot stomping new single, ‘There’s No Place In This World For Me’ that finds them exploring an Americana/roots sound as vocalist Greg Barnett pushes the limits of the natural rasp and twang in his distinct vocal tone. Recorded at Sonic Ranch in April 2023, it was produced by Brad Cook (Waxahatchee, Kevin Morby), mixed by Jon Low (Taylor Swift, The National) and mastered by Ryan Smith (Coldplay, Smashing Pumpkins). Drawing inspiration from both the gritty punk rock tradition and the introspective storytelling of folk music, the band establishes a unique and elevated sound.
The Menzingers comment, “Very excited to share our new single, ‘There’s No Place In This World For Me’ from our upcoming album that… well we can’t go into details just yet but trust us, it’s coming soon! This song is an anthem for anyone stuck between where they are and where they want to be.”
Featuring singers/guitarists Greg Barnett and Tom May, bassist Eric Keen, and drummer Joe Godino, The Menzingers formed as teenagers in their hometown of Scranton, PA in 2006, then later relocated to Philadelphia. The band made their Epitaph debut with 2012’s ‘On The Impossible Past’, which was voted Album of the Year by Absolute Punk, Punk News and Rock Sound. Arriving in 2014, their fourth album ‘Rented World’ was praised as “packed with clever songwriting” by The New York Times and “a colossal fist-pumper” by Stereogum. In February 2017, The Menzingers released their fifth album ‘After the Party’, which landed on best-of-the-year lists from outlets like Clash, Noisey and Kerrang!, with Stereogum praising its “almost unfairly well-written punk songs.” Fall of 2019 saw the release of ‘Hello Exile’, the band’s “boldest and most self-assured album” according to Pop Matters, coming back with reimagined version ‘From Exile’ (2020) a year later.
