About On The Impossible Past by The Menzingers

Rising punk rock band The Menzingers create a rousing sound featuring crashing power chords, rock steady drumming and anthemic sing-along choruses alongside powerfully poetic everyman lyrics. On The Impossible Past was recorded at Atlas Studios in Chicago with longtime collaborators Matt Allison (Alkaline Trio, The Lawrence Arms) and Justin Yates. While the record retains all the raucous spirit of the band's earlier efforts sonically, it's a monumental step forward. "I think that 'Gates' is one of the most mature songs on the album," guitarist/vocalist Tom May explains, referencing the tender rock song sung by Barnett that truly transcends genres. "I hope it surprises people because it's not a straight-forward punk song with gang vocals or anything like that but it still definitely sounds like us."

Hands down my favorite quote from ol' Uncle Kurt, and one of my favorite quotes of all time. https://t.co/zUBzyfX2kV

My resume: pretty good at smoking pot, pretty good at playing guitar. Strengths: fuzz pedals. Weaknesses: hate people.
