THE MEN ARE WE

THE MEN

We first heard The Men a while back when a buddy of ours sent us a download for their debut 12″ – We Are The Men. At that point, we’d never seen them play a show or knew anything about any of the members and, to be honest, were just kind of “whatever” about it. Since then, we’ve seen them and heard a number of their cassette releases [their split cassette with Nomos is killer] and their other record, Immaculada [which you can now pick up a repress of here] We caught word today that the bad boys have finished their third LP and it’ll see release in the new year from Sacred Bones. If you’re into crude noise-y Wipers-plus-MBV-plus-hardcore slime, check them out. Here’s a couple tracks from the boys [including a Devo cover] They’re slated to do a West Coast tour shortly after we switch to the 2k11, dates below…
