The Men yes, "The," are a four-piece post punk outfit from Brooklyn, NY. Their catalog, which began in 2008 with a hand-dubbed self-released demo cassette, has grown to include two LPs - We Are the Men and Immaculada - two more tapes, and a 7-inch. They have toured three times, played over 75 shows and have grown a following of die hard fans crowding into living rooms and basements throughout the five boroughs, desperately trying to see them. The buzz in their hometown has grown so fervent that the Village Voice debuted this album's first single, "Bataille," a full six months before the record was scheduled to street. Named for the famed French pornographic writer, the track review expounds, "rides a pug-ugly joy-punk riff into almost krautrock oblivion - complete with gorgeous voice cracks and face-mooshing distortion." They have breathed new life into the genre of hardcore and created a seminal album that is truly for punks of all ages.
