Aside from the city, one rarely knows what to expect each night on tour. The Menzingers' guitarist and vocalist Tom May hoped to have wi-fi so we could do a video interview via Skype on Monday night. But it wasn't in the cards. Plopped down on a lawn chair near the band's trailor, smoking a cigarette after a set at the all-ages Kilby Court in Salt Lake City, Utah, May talked to Hear Nebraska on the phone about the "Gurewitz card" that comes from signing to punk rock's biggest label, avoiding car sickness and clunker shows, Desaparecidos, and his favorite all-time chorus (hint: Joe Strummer's involved.)
Watch the Love Drunk video Hear Nebraska helped shoot with The Menzingers in Philadelphia here:
Andrew Norman edits and manages Hear Nebraska. He used The Menzingers "I Was Born" from Chamberlain Waits as the intro and outro music in that interview. Red Scare Industries can send him a cease and desist at email@example.com.
