Menomena Announces New Album
  • THURSDAY, JUNE 14, 2012

  • Posted by: Amanda Scherker

Portland-based indie rock band Menomena just released a teaser and track list for their latest album, Moms, along with a sprinkling of album art and upcoming tour dates. This quick peek offers more of the humor and often dark whimsy that fans have delighted over in the past. The news should come as a relief; after all, the past two years have had their share of highs and lows for Menomena. After receiving rave reviews for their fourth album Mines, the band lost founding member Brent Knopf to his other musical project, Ramona Falls.

But if this teaser's any indication, these critical darlings didn't let every rock n' roll band's inevitable game of musical chairs throw them off guard. A band hailed for their unpredictability and daring, Menomena was probably wise not to reveal too much in this winking, lo-fi clip. Instead, the tongue-in-cheek teaser promises the same innovation that fans have come to expect from the constantly evolving group. Whether you're a diehard groupie ready to buy tickets to every upcoming show or a newcomer to Menomena's quirky universe, it's worth taking a look.
