Through Basurk Records, Menomena will be releasing their new album, Moms, on Septemeber 18. The band will also be touring during the months of September and October. Read on for tour dates and more details about the album.

For this album, the band has been reconstructed by the co-founder, Brent Knopf. Knopf has returned after leaving the band to work with Ramona Falls. The band’s hope is to prove “directly to themselves, and by extension, to everyone else, that the band remains the same brazen band” that put out records in the past.


Moms is “tragic and intimate, comic and endearing, personal and motivated,” says the press release.
