To celebrate the new album the promo photo is of… their dads.

Check the teaser trailer for the album (featuring a guest appearance by an indie-rock pug) below.

In support of their new album, Menomena will embark on a North American headlining tour in Autumn, followed by dates in Europe and an appearance at the revered All Tomorrow’s Parties festival in the UK.

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.
