Pennsylvania punk rockers The Menzingers are prepping the release of their eighth studio album, Some Of It Was True, and late last week the band shared a contemplative new single that the band calls one of their favorites on the new album.

“Come On Heartache” finds co-songwriter Greg Barnett taking lead and delivering an earnest and emotive rock ballad about yearning to move beyond internalized pain and sorrow; “I confess I’m no better than the rest,” he sings. “Creature of comfort, internal unrest. Some days it takes me everything that I got just to endure another miserable thought.”

The gorgeous music video for the song finds the band performing live in Montgomery County’s historic abandoned Lynnewood Hall — a favorite rogue photo shoot location of Tyler School of Art students circa late 90s and early 00s — and the stark contrast between naturalistic beauty of the grounds, the antique grandeur of the early 20th century architecture, and the chilling desolation of both is a perfect compliment to the band’s lyrics.

The band is also using the video to raise awareness about the building’s preservation efforts; for more information, visit its website. Some of It Was True is out October 13th on Epitaph Records, and can be pre-ordered and pre-saved here. The Menzingers play Franklin Music Hall with Microwave, Cloud Nothings, and Rodeo Boys; tickets and more information on the show can be found at WXPN’s Concerts and Events page.
