Punk is just too stubborn to die. Because of the genre's tenacity, some young bands are lucky enough to tour with artists that have been making music for decades. The Menzingers have played shows with The Descendents, and the group is currently on the third leg of a tour with The Bouncing Souls.
"We grew up listening to them. Some of the first shows we went to were their shows, so to have it come full circle like this a couple years later is pretty gratifying," says vocalist and guitarist Tom May.
We recently caught up with Tom May to discuss the band's latest album, On the Impossible Past, his first time meeting The Lawrence Arms' Brendan Kelly, and how the punk community responds to stolen gear.
