The Menzingers - Some Of It Was True LP (Cherry Bomb Splash Vinyl)

T H E M E N Z I N G E R S 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, S O M E O F I T W A S T R U E , 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 T H E M E N Z I N G E R S ’ 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, T H E M E N Z I N G E R S are still holding their listeners square in the immediate present, and S O M E O F I T W A S T R U E 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 T H E M E N Z I N G E R S in El Paso’s legendary Sonic Ranch studios and lent his incredible ear for raw, immediate sound to help the band achieve S O M E O F I T WA S T R U E ’ S in-the-room live feel.
