Barsuk Records is thrilled to release the first Menomena track “Heavy Is As Heavy Does” off their upcoming album Moms, out September 18th. The track premiered via Pitchfork, and is available for posting HERE. Moms is the Portland-based band’s fifth album, and their first as a duo. The band is also pleased to announce that PVT will be joining them on their North American headlining tour in support of Moms. The tour will be followed by an appearance at the revered All Tomorrow’s Parties festival in the UK. Full tour dates are listed below.
During the last decade, Menomena has become its own reference point. From hooks wrapped around plummeting baritone saxophone lines and nearly inhuman rhythms to serpentine lyrical frameworks and high-concept album art, Menomena has established a singular and unmistakable aesthetic. They embed magic and mystery within pop songs that have never sat still or taken the path of least pressure.
