Brooklyn's Nick Chiericozzi, Chris Hansell, and Mark Perro formed scuzzy post-punk group the Men in 2008.
Before recruiting drummer Rich Samis, they self-released the albums We Are the Men and Immaculada, as well as a few tapes. The band recorded in Python Patrol studio for its Sacred Bones
debut, Leave Home, which was released in 2011. They returned the following March with Open Your Heart, expanding their musical palette to meld country, psych, and surf influences with their blistering rock. Their fourth album, New Moon, as well as their Campfire Songs EP, arrived in 2013. The Men continued their musical evolution, as well as their prolific streak, with their fifth album, Tomorrow's Hits, which found them moving further away from their hardcore roots toward the earnest blue-collar rock of artists like Bruce Springsteen
and Tom Petty
. In 2016, the group revisited its noisy, more experimental side with the self-released Devil Music. Returning to Sacred Bones
in 2018, the band released Drift, their most eclectic album yet. ~ Jason Lymangrover, Rovi
