The Menzingers‘ classic breakthrough album On the Impossible Past turned 10 earlier this year, and the band will be playing it in full at Riot Fest this weekend, and then at The Fest, and then on their fall tour with Touche Amore and Screaming Females. They’ve also just announced that the album’s accompanying limited vinyl-only acoustic demos EP On the Possible Past will come to streaming services for the first time ever on November 4 via Epitaph (pre-save), and along with that announcement comes a lyric video for the acoustic version of “Burn.” Check it out below.

“This record changed our lives forever,” guitarist/vocalist Tom May said. “The last ten years have been a whirlwind of vans and airplanes, loud stages, late nights, love, dear friends, and once in a lifetime experiences. On the Impossible Past was the ticket. It was a rocket that took the four of us from our small smoke-filled basement in South Philly to stages in cities all over the world.”

The Menzingers’ tour begins with four Asbury Park shows at House of Independents on November 3, 4, 5 & 6, hits NYC on November 8 & 9 at Le Poisson Rouge, and Long Island on November 10 at Stereo Garden. All dates are listed below.
