Men Without Hats Return. Yes, Really.

Men Without Hats. With a hat. And a woman.Yes, it’s true that they haven’t had a hit since “Pop Goes the World” in 1987.  But still, one must give props to a band that’s been around (more or less) since 1977.  

The new record is Love in the Age of War and will be available on iTunes Tuesday with the physical copy coming a week later.  Ivan Dorschuk, his brother Colin along with Lou Dawson and James Love recorded this album with Dave “Rave” Olgilvie, a guy known for his work with Skinny Puppy and Marilyn Manson.

  • Thanks for posting….I heard this track in back ground a few days ago and thought to myself, "wow Men Without Hats had a song from years ago I never knew about." I credit Cold Cave for making Synth Pop cool again.
