The Men 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 LP's- We Are the Men and Immaculada- two more tapes, and a 7"¬ù. The buzz in their hometown has grown so fervent that the Village Voice debuted this album's first single, "Bataille"¬ù a full six months before the record was scheduled to street. Recording to tape for the first time here, using elements of distortion, feedback, pop hooks, and a couple of beautifully destructive instrumental passages, The Men have been described by Mishka as, "more composers than musicians." They have breathed new life into the genre of hardcore and created a seminal album that is truly for punks of all ages.
