NXNE Alum: The Men Hit the Road

Need more rock & roll in your life? If you saw The Men at NXNE 2012, you’ll know the band is all about guitars + loud music. Lucky for some other select cities across the world, they’ve announced a massive tour. Exclaim! has more on where you can see the Brooklyn punk rockers (sorry, Toronto – not this time around.)

If you can’t make it to a show, The Men also released a new music video for “Electric.” Watch it below and maybe just pretend you’re in a sweaty venue instead.

The Men Hit Canada on World Tour

By Josiah Hughes

On March 5, Sacred Bones will issue New Moon, the latest in a string of albums from hard-working Brooklyn indie rockers the Men. Rather than sit around and wait for you to buy it, however, they’ll show you the songs in person with a hefty North American tour.

The run of shows includes dates all over the globe, with scheduled stops in Australia and Europe, but its still a mostly North American affair.

The trek includes a healthy batch of Canadian shows as well, with the group scheduled to hit Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver in April.
