Menomena Announce New Album and Tour

One of my most anticipated albums of the year, Portland band Menomena will release Moms (cover art above), their follow-up to 2010’s amazing Mines, in September.

Founding member Brent Knopf’s departure last year didn’t seem to slow down production of Moms one bit. The record was written and recorded entirely by remaining members, Justin Harris and Danny Seim. The tracklist and tour dates for the album are below, as well as a teaser video for their upcoming album.

TRACKLIST:

01 “Plumage”
02 “Capsule”
03 “Pique”
04 “Baton”
05 “Heavy Is As Heavy Does”
06 “Giftshoppe”
07 “Skintercourse”
08 “Tantalus”
09 “Don’t Mess With Latexas”
10 “One Horse”
