“Come On Heartache” By The Menzingers

The Menzingers release their long new album, Some Of It Was True on October 13th, ahead of the LP’s arrival, the band have shared “Hope Is A Dangerous Little Thing.” The song is accompanied by a music video shot at the historic preservation site Lynnewood Hall in Elkins Park, PA, featuring cinematic shots of the band performing in various gorgeous locations across the property.

“Our third single, “Come on Heartache”, is out now! This one felt extra special from the get go, it’s one of our favorites off the album and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Thanks to Britain Weyant & co for crushing the video, and extra thanks to Lynnewood Hall for allowing us to film at their unbelievable location.” Check it out below:

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 Sonic Ranch. Lending his incredible ear, Cook helped accomplish the daunting task of capturing the Menzingers’ live energy within the confines of a studio.

“The Menzingers are as real as it gets,” Cook says on his time in the studio with the band. “I had an absolute blast working with these guys and was moved to tears many times. They are truly dedicated to artistic growth, and to each other, in ways I found both refreshing and beautiful. I am now a lifer.”

Speaking on the impact that Cook had on the band, guitarist and vocalist Tom May says, “Brad massively changed the way we were approaching the record. We’d talk about music and develop a vocabulary about how to work together, and that made us embrace chasing the feeling instead worrying about locking in things immediately.”

Lyrically, Some Of It Was True is a showcase for how the band’s songwriting has expanded beyond their own personal experiences, drawing from what’s happening around them and the lives of those who keep this world’s lifeforce pumping. Acknowledging that they’re in a very different place than when they formed in 2008, this album embraces change and it’s definitely for the better. “This record just feels different for us,” Greg Barnett explains. “It’s a really important one in our catalog, and a pivotal moment in our history. We have the liberty of our fans growing with us now, and after writing these lyrical songs about where we are in life, we decided to take other peoples’ stories and make something bigger out of it.”
