The Menzingers
Page: Booking Stars Ltd.

A punk rock band, The Menzingers, was created in Pennsylvania in 2006. The initial lineup featured Greg Barnett and Tom May (both are vocalists and guitarists), a bassist Eric Keen, and a drummer Joe Godino. In the past 13 years, the band recorded five LPs and several EPs and singles.

The Menzingers released a demo album right after the formation. It helped them get the attention of several labels. Eventually, musicians signed a contract with Go-Kart Records and released their debut LP, A Lesson in the Abuse of Information Technology, in 2007. The producer of this album was Jesse Cannon. When talking about the group, the reputable producer said that The Menzingers have excellent potential because, unlike the majority of the beginners, they have all it takes for success, including mild aggression, good songs, and a real desire to perform.

In 2009, the band released an EP, consisting of four tracks. Hold On Dodge was recorded with the assistance of the label, Red Scare Industries. It became the artists’ first vinyl release. The bonus track "Kentucky Gentleman" appeared for the band’s fans in iTunes.
