For their fifth full-length After the Party, The Menzingers set out to make the
quintessential jukebox record: an unstoppably melodic album primed for bar-room sing-alongs. Delivering anthemic harmonies, furious power chords, and larger-than-life melodies, the Philadelphia-based garage-punk four-piece amply fulfills that mission while achieving something much more deeply nuanced. With its delicately crafted storytelling and everyman romanticism, After the Party
ultimately proves to be a wistful but life-affirming reflection on getting older but not quite growing up. “We spent our 20s living in a rowdy kind of way, and now we’re at a point where
it seems like everyone in our lives is moving in different directions,” says Tom
May, who joined fellow singer/guitarist Greg Barnett, bassist Eric Keen, and
drummer Joe Godino in forming The Menzingers as teenagers in their hometown
of Scranton. Adds Barnett:
” We’re turning 30 now, and there’s this idea that that’swhen real life comes on. In a way this album is us saying, ‘We don’t have to grow up or get boring —we can keep on having a good time doing what we love.'”
