The Men at Saint Vitus in 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro//BBG)
The Men

As mentioned, Brooklyn rockers The Men are set to release their fourth album, New Moon, on March 5 via Sacred Bones. Each album by The Men has had its own sound so far, so when they revealed the first single, "Electric," it was a little surprising how much like Open Your Heart it sounded, but on their newest album cut, "I Saw Her Face," they show yet another shift in sound, coming off like the Grunge Grateful Dead or Crazy Horse-via-Dinosaur Jr. You might miss them being "more punk," but they do this sound really well too. Listen to the new song below.

As discussed, The Men will be supporting the new album with a tour, which includes a sold out record release show at Bowery Ballroom on March 7 with Nude Beach and Parquet Courts, and a just-announced Northside Festival show opening for the Greg Ginn/Ron Reyes' incarnation of Black Flag at Warsaw on June 14. Good For You and Netherlands are on that bill too and tickets go on sale Friday (2/22) at noon.

A list of all dates and the new song stream below...
