US punk heroes The Menzingers are journeying to Aotearoa for the very first time this coming March, to play a fist-pumping pair of headline events in Auckland and Wellington. Masters of heartstring-tugging singalong anthems, The Menzingers got their start in Scranton, Pennsylvania back in 2006 and are now based in Philadelphia and six studio albums deep, with their new long player Hello Exile (released just last month via Epitaph) tackling such time-honoured themes as holding true to your roots while getting older, alcohol abuse and personal relationship turmoil. Their 2017 record After the Party was a fixture on best-of-the-year lists from such international tastemakers as Clash and Noisey – you can catch The Menzingers at the dates below...

UPDATE 16/03/20: The Menzingers have cancelled their Aotearoa shows for March and shared the following statement...

"Due to the rapidly changing and unpredictable public health situation regarding Covid-19 we'll be cancelling the New Zealand leg of our tour.

This was a difficult decision for us but the safetly and security of our fans, familt, and crew is out highest priority.

Let's not panic, let's be smart and responsible. This sucks, but we are all going to get through this together.

Love you all,


P.S. bet your ass we'll be back"

Press release:

Chicks That Scream couldn't be more stoked to welcome Philadelphia-based punks The Menzingers to Aotearoa for the first time in March 2020.

Expect to grab a stranger and raise your fists in the air whilst singing along to emotionally-tinged, American heartland punk-rock from a band at their peak.

The Menzingers are touring off the back of their brand new anthemic punk rock album Hello Exile - their sixth - out now via Epitaph records.
