THE MENZINGERS are an absolute institution. The Philadelphia punk legends' multi-decade reputation as road warriors with an unbeatable catalog is
cemented as hard truth-and their seventh album, SOME OF IT WAS TRUE , stands as their most immediate-sounding and energetic record to date. The
follow-up to 2019's sensational Hello Exile accomplishes the daunting task of capturing THE MENZINGERS' distinctive live energy in the confines of the
studio, resulting in a sound that's both rich, raw, and complementary to the group's increasingly prismatic songwriting approach. More than 15 years in,
THE MENZINGERS are still holding their listeners square in the immediate present, and SOME OF IT WAS TRUE documents that power in thrilling fashion.
"We wanted to make a fun record and write songs that we wanted to play live, and that's exactly what we did," co-vocalist/guitarist Greg Barnett says
"We've always said that we want every album to sound live, but we never recorded an album live before. This was the first time we committed to that idea.
We wanted to sound like how our band sounds onstage."
Making the process easier: Grammy-nominated producer Brad Cook (Bon Iver, the War on Drugs, Waxahatchee), who joined THE MENZINGERS in El Paso's
legendary Sonic Ranch studios and lent his incredible ear for raw, immediate sound to help the band achieve SOME OF IT WAS TRUE'S in-the-room live
feel. " 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."
