Menzingers Announce Headlining TourScranton raised, Philadelphia based punk rock outfit The Menzingers have announced plans to take their rousing live show on the road for a series of headlining dates with four-piece American rock band Fake Problems, fellow Philadelphia outfit Restorations, and Captain, We’re Sinking. The headlining tour is set to begin Friday, May 24 in Philadelphia, PA and wrap Thursday, June 12 in Asbury Park, NJ. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at http://menzingers.soundrink.com/.

On The Impossible Past was recorded at Atlas Studios with longtime collaborators Matt Allison (Alkaline Trio, The Lawrence Arms) and Justin Yates. On The Impossible Past was named 2012’s album of the year by Punknews, Rock Sound, Absolute Punk, and Property of Zack. The record retains all the raw vital energy of the band's earlier output, while adding some powerful new twists to the group’s sonic arsenal.

The night just grew its fangs
I wonder what's on the tour EP...

Reminds me of when I saw Fake Problems and the Menzingers open for the Gaslight Anthem in 2010. Really hope both bands come back to the Canadian prairies sooner than later.

Yeah I hope the Tour EP is new music, that'd be really nice.

Im really sad Minneapolis isnt getting this... but the Milwaukee date is right after the Alkaline Trio Milwaukee Date.
This tour is too good to pass up.

going to cry now. Menzingers and Fake Problems are quite possibly my two favorite bands at this point and Restorations are top 20. Plane tickets will cost at least $400. Not sure its worth it. Gonna see them all at fest. But like... its such a good lineup I donno
