On the Impossible Past

Epitaph / Ada 87170.2

Released on February 21, 2012



Vinyl includes MP3 download card

Scranton-raised, Philadelphia-based punk rock outfit The Menzingers drop their Epitaph debut On the Impossible Past this February, after two acclaimed albums on small indies. The band’s fiery early releases and dynamic live performances supporting Anti Flag and Against Me! have created a serious buzz and landed the group on several best of lists. The band caught the attention of Epitaph founder and President Brett Gurewitz, who says, “These guys play the kind of pure punk rock that I grew up with. They are seriously talented songwriters and I’m happy to welcome them to the Epitaph family. I think the band is a great fit here.” Their high energy sound features crashing power chords, rock steady drumming and anthemic sing-along choruses alongside poetic salt of the earth lyrics in the vein of Against Me! and Gaslight Anthem.

Absolutely love this cd. The songs casey, Burn after writing and the gates are ridiculously awesome and well worth the money.

I feel bad that I didn't give a review of this album earlier. This album is just awesome,no other words come to mind. They are a pretty good pop punk/punk band,this isn't your normal punk band,by far they tend to have poetry like lyrics,that have that catchy chorus that all pop punk bands seem to have.This album is even better when you can relate to the songs.

This is my introduction to this band and I'm blown away with how good this is! They have classic melodic/catchy as hell anthems that get stuck stuck stuck stuck in your head! "Gates" is the best song....such a crushing melody! This band has nothing but success in their future!

Catchy as hell and I can't stop listening to it. STand out songs for me are "mexican guitars" and "obituaries". The menzingers are going to be f'ing huge and they sure as hell deserve it.
