As predicted, Philly’s favorite punks The Menzingers sold out Kung Fu Necktie in mere minutes yesterday for their album release day party. But they still gave fans a taste of that new album, After The Party, with the release of new track, “Thick as Thieves.” Opening with blunt guitar power chords, the song is carried along by an easygoing melody, then jumps to a headbang-inducing, infectious chorus that will undoubtedly be streaming through your head all day. Along with the new song, the band — noted craft brew enthusiasts that they are — announced the creation of an After The Party beer through a collab with Neshaminy Creek.
From the band:
“we’re very excited to announce we’re collaborating with our friends at Neshaminy Creek once again. This time it will be an Irish-style Dry Stout brewed with English maris otter malt and conditioned on Reanimator coffee. 4% ABV and it is absolutely crushable.”
The After The Party beer will be available on tap on February 3rd at their intimate album release Kung Fu Necktie set, while cases of the brew can be purchased starting February 6th. If you aren’t able to catch The Menzingers for the album release show, don’t fret, you have another chance to see them later this spring, when they headline The Fillmore on March 31st. More details can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar. Listen to the new jam, “Thick as Thieves,” off of After the Party below.
