MENOMENA RELEASES “PIQUE” OFF UPCOMING LP MOMS

By on September 9, 2012

Barsuk Records is thrilled to debut Menomena’s “Pique,” the third track to be released off the band’s upcoming album Moms. Pitchforkpremiered the track, which is available for posting HERE. Pre-orders for Moms, out September 18th, are currently available and are coupled with an exclusive shirt design by Menomena’s Danny Seim. In anticipation of the release of Moms, HypeMachine will be streaming the album in full next week.
Early praise for Moms is already rolling in, with Under the Radar calling Menomena “one of the most well thought-out bands working today, never sacrificing structure or composition in the name of delivering a series of power chords.” Pitchforkcalled the lead single “Heavy Is As Heavy Does” “gloriously morose,” while Rolling Stone praised the track as “an emotive outburst of a song that expertly sidesteps melodrama – confessional rock thrills without the cheesy aftertaste.”
  
Moms is the Portland-based band’s fifth album, and their first as a duo. The band will also head out on a North American tour this fall, with support from PVT. The tour will be followed by a European tour with support from Stacks, as well as an appearance at the revered All Tomorrow’s Parties festival in the UK.
