Yesterday at noon, Guild Shows announced that the Golden Tea House would be hosting a surprise, same-day record release show for The Menzingers’ new album Rented World.

The show reached capacity 14 minutes after opening the doors. Nona and The Holy Mess opened. It was the first Holy Mess show as a three piece since Scott Engel left the band.

This was the first time The Menzingers played Philadelphia since last summer at First Unitarian with Fake Problems, Restorations and Captain We’re Sinking. It was the first house show The Menzingers played in more than two years (the last time was at The Cracker Factory … RIP).

People were really stoked throughout the whole show. When the mic stopped working for the last song of the night, everyone sang it as loud as they could in that wonderful uniting way that is often referred to as “gang vocals,” and it was beautiful.
