The MEN – ” God Bless The USA “

Posted: December 1, 2022 in MUSIC

Not a cover of Lee Greenwood’s schmaltzy, jingoistic 1984 hit, this original by The Men offers a different look at our country. “I woke up with this melody in my head, went into the kitchen and grabbed my guitar amidst constant infuriating headlines and a lot of Chuck Berry and Eddie Cochran,” says Nick Chiericozzi. “It’s not a statement on anyone or anything in particular – at the end of the day, it’s all going down in flames.” This is from The Men’s upcoming album “New York City“.

We’re dead excited to announce that Brooklyn institution The Men are returning with their ninth studio album, ‘New York City’ The record is out February 3rd and the band have already shared the incendiary lead single, ‘Hard Livin”

“These songs became the blood of the band as the band could only exist for and of these songs. Without making this record, the group would not exist, so there really wasn’t another option. NYC is fluid. It means a lot of different things to all kinds of people. We present the record in that spirit.”

A series of cuts played live and recorded to 2″ tape, ‘New York City’ marks a return to the more scuzzy and abrasive punk ploughed over their decade and a half spent coursing through the grimy sewers of NYC. There are exclusive vinyl editions available to pre-order from Rough Trade, LEVITATION and the Fuzz Club store

‘God Bless The USA’ is lifted from The Men’s new album ‘New York City’, out February 3rd 2023 on Fuzz Club Records.
