The Menzingers is an American punk rock band hailing from Scranton Pennsylvania, US, forming out of the remnants of popular local ska bands, Bob and the Sagets and Kos Mos.

The band came together in 2006, consisting of the four members Greg Barnett (guitar/vocals), Tom May (guitar/vocals), Eric Keen (bass) and Joe Godino (drums). The band impressed with their self-titled demo released in 2006, gaining the attention of record label Go-Kart Records, who brought the band onto their roster.

A year later, The Menzingers had released their debut album, titled “A Lesson in the Abuse of Information Technology,” which made significant waves in the punk world, finding new fans, achieving a sound similar to the likes of the Lawrence Arms. The band moved to Red Scare Industries in 2009 to release their four-song EP, “Hold on Dodge,” before then embarking upon a tour alongside Broadway Calls.

In 2010, they released their second full-length, “Chamberlain Waits,” which went on to be named one of the best punk records of the year by sites like Punknews.org, Absolutepunk.net and Exclaim.ca. The success of the record also gained them a front-cover appearance on AMP Magazine. The album brought the respect of their peers, embarking on support slots for The Gaslight Anthem, Against Me!, NOFX and ANTI-FLAG across the US and Canada.

With hype building, Epitaph Records signed the act, going on to release their third album through the popular punk label, titled “On the Impossible Past, released in 2012. The album was voted album of the year on a number of online media outlets, including Absolutepunk.net. “Rented World” followed, being released in April 2014.
