The Menzingers Release Video For New Single 'Gone West'

Beloved Philadelphia punk institution The Menzingers are announcing ‘Some Of It Was True (Deluxe)’: the expanded special edition of their critically acclaimed seventh album out this Friday, May 31st. Enhancing the collection of contemplative sing-a-longs marked by cathartic choruses, The Menzingers extend the fun with two new tracks including single ‘Gone West’ which is available to listen to now. Both new songs will also be available physically on limited 7-inch vinyl.

The Menzingers also share the accompanying music video for ‘Gone West’ which was shot and edited by the band’s good friend and touring crew member, Tyler Long. Filmed during their massive headlining tour last Winter, the video depicts a collage of endearing moments on and off the stage. 

“We recorded ‘Gone West’ at the same time as ‘Some of it Was True’ and although we didn’t think it fit just right on the album, it has some of my favorite guitar and vocal melodies,”

vocalist/guitarist TomMay recalls.

“The lyrics are a tongue-in-cheek play on accepting the truth of your own mortality. I always thought “goin’ west” was an interesting euphemism for dying; following the sun.”
