The Menzingers Announce Reimagined Album ‘From Exile’

The Menzingers announced plans to release reimagined stripped down album, From Exile. The reimagined version of Hello Exile will be released digitally on September 25th and on vinyl on November 13th. The band recorded it from their respective homes during the stay at home orders. They were on tour in Australia when the pandemic began. “The live music industry vanished before our eyes, and just like that we were out of work like tens of millions of others,” notes singer/guitarists Greg Barnett. “As the weeks progressed the upcoming tours got rescheduled, then rescheduled again, then effectively cancelled. There were times when it all felt fatal. There’s no guide book on how to navigate being a working musician during a global pandemic, so we were left to make it up as we went along. We wanted to document and create in the moment, and though we couldn’t be in the same room together due to social distancing lockdowns, we got creative.”  Listen to “Strawberry Mansion” and “High School Friend” below and get it here.
