The Brooklyn rock band The Men have a new album -- but they're not ready to discuss details just yet. "I don't want to talk too much about that, because we still have two records out," says Ben Greenberg, the band's bassist, laughing gently.

The Men emerged on the radar of independent music fans in 2011, with their album Leave Home, a furious hurricane of thrashing guitar that jump-started conversations about the return of muscular rock n' roll. But resting within all that noise, was a firm sense of direction, the idea, always, that the band knew what they were doing and how they were going to go about doing it. The Men were and are fiercely collective, a fact which accounts for the unity of their sound, and also explains their discipline in all other facets of industry life.
