The Menzingers dropped a new track and video “America (You’re Freaking Me Out)” from their upcoming release that uses an extraterrestrial to comment on the current political climate in the U.S.

The song is the first track on the band’s forthcoming record Hello Exile, out October 4 via Epitaph Records.

“We’re living in a pretty insane time, where all you can think about every single day is ‘What the Hell is going on with this country?’” vocalist Greg Barnett said in a statement. “But as I was writing that song, I realized that it’s kind of always freaked me out, especially coming-of-age during the Iraq War. I love so much about America, but I think you can’t deny that there are some people in power who are absolutely evil.”

The video shows an alien traveling across the United States, baffled by what it finds in this country. Check out the full video down below.

Hello Exile is the follow up to the band’s 2017 album After The Party. You can preorder it here and check out the full tracklist below.
