Scranton, Pennsylvania based punk rockers The Menzingers get a little bit political with their new single, ‘America (You’re Freaking Me Out)’, and for its video they involve an alien life form.
This is what vocalist/guitarist Greg Barnett had to say about the track.
“We’re living in a pretty insane time, where all you can think about every single day is ‘What the hell is going on with this country?’ But as I was writing that song I realized that it’s kind of always freaked me out, especially coming-of-age during the Iraq War. I love so much about America, but I think you can’t deny that there are some people in power who are absolutely evil.”
You can stream and watch the video for ‘America (You’re Freaking Me Out)’ below.
The band’s sixth studio album, ‘Hello Exile’, is set for release on October 4th 2019 via Epitaph Records.
