Philadelphia-based punk band The Menzingers shared the music video for the song 'Strangers Forever,' a track off the band’s forthcoming record 'Hello Exile', out October 4 via Epitaph.

The track is a searing tribute to parting ways. “Lyrically, the song is inspired by Leo Tolstoy's classic novel, ‘Anna Karenina’. In it, the character Darya Alexandrovna learns of her husband’s infidelity and declares: ‘Even if we remain in the same house, we are strangers — strangers forever!’” explains vocalist Greg Barnett.

“The idea of becoming a stranger to someone you so intimately know stuck with me and became the overarching narrative to this song.”
