Menomena Soon to be Back with ‘Moms’
Menomena, the fine band who brought us Mines, will be bursting into the musical consciousness in the UK once again with their fifth album Moms, out on 8 October.
It hasn’t been too much of an easy ride since their widely applauded album Mines, in fact they lost a member along the way. Brent Knopf decided to leave the band in order to focus on his solo project Ramona Falls but that didn’t stop the rest of Menomena, Danny Seim and Justin Harris, from persisting without him.
In fact they did their best to prove that Menomena could function just the same, and in the process discovered more about themselves and decided to explore it.
Danny Seim’s mum passed away when he was young and Harris’ father walked out on him. It’s a juxtaposition of sorts, and one they put to use.
Thus Moms was born.
Although Knopf has left, Seim and Harris have proved that they can function well as a duo. If you want to catch them live they’ll be going on tour at the end of the year:
