LOOK: Menomena To Release New Album, “Moms”; Plus Big North American Tour

Portland’s Menomena announced the departure of third-member Brian Knopf (who now gigs as Ramona Falls), downsizing the group to two, but that doesn’t mean the band is quite done yet. In fact, they have just announced the September 18th release date of their fifth studio album, Moms, which is described as “tragic and intimate, comic and endearing, personal and motivated.” Moms will be the follow-up to 2010's Mines, and just like its predacessor, will be released via Barsuk.

Watch the album’s teaser trailer below. Artwork, tracklist, and tour dates follow.
