Philly quartet The Menzingers reckon with their pain in new single ‘Come on Heartache’, a slowed down rocker with twangy licks, released today. The track features on their recently announced, long awaited seventh album, ‘Some Of It Was True’, which will be released 13th October via Epitaph.
Demonstrating the band’s rich strength in songwriting, ‘Come on Heartache’ personifies the feeling of heartache with vivid imagery as they confront the emotion head on. The song is accompanied by a music video shot at the historic Lynnewood Hall, featuring cinematic shots of the band performing in various gorgeous locations across the property.
Joined by Grammy-nominated producer Brad Cook (Bon Iver, The War on Drugs, Waxahatchee), The Menzingers took off to El Paso, Texas to record ‘Some Of It Was True’ at the legendary Sonic Ranch. Lending his incredible ear, Cook helped accomplish the daunting task of capturing The Menzingers’ distinctive live energy within the confines of a studio. What results is their most immediate-sounding and energetic record to date, which is rich, raw, and complementary to the group’s increasingly prismatic songwriting approach.
