The Menzingers have just dropped a new single called “Lookers,” a track that could possibly be a preview of the band’s forthcoming LP After the Party. The Scranton natives have been known to dabble in a nostalgia-soaked brand of pop punk, and “Lookers” follows that lead.

References to classic teenage life-changing novel On the Road and coming of age in the back of a diner pepper the song’s lyrical imagery, a trip down memory lane triggered by a photo from many years ago. It’s a feeling many people can relate to: that sense that your best days, the days of reckless abandon and true adolescent freedom, are behind you. But the power of nostalgia, and of this song, is that those youthful feelings can come flooding back when you least expect it, happily drowning you in faded, half-forgotten memories.

Listen to “Lookers” over on Noisy and pick up tickets for The Menzingers’ August 18th all-ages show at The Electric Factory here. Check out “In Remission” from 2014’s Rented World.
