Menomena set to release "Moms"

Hooks wrapped around plummeting baritone saxophone lines

Barsuk Records have announced that Menomena will release their new album, "Moms", on September the 18th 2012. "Moms" is the Portland-based band's fifth, and their first as a duo. In support of "Moms", Menomena will embark on a North American headlining tour in the fall, followed by an appearance at the revered All Tomorrow's Parties festival in the UK.

During the last decade, Menomena has become its own reference point. From hooks wrapped around plummeting baritone saxophone lines and nearly inhuman rhythms to serpentine lyrical frameworks and high-concept album art, Menomena has established a singular and unmistakable aesthetic. They embed magic and mystery within pop songs that have never sat still or taken the path of least pressure.

After 2010's irrepressible and intricate "Mines", Menomena co-founder Brent Knopf took his leave to focus on his solo project causing Justin Harris and Danny Seim - close friends since high school and now well into their second decade of making music together - to recast Menomena as a duo. They didn't slow down; they actually sped up, writing, recording and releasing "Moms" with more focus and speed than ever before.
