Menomena to tour the US in support of their recent Stanley Cup Victory, or something else.

Hey guys. Unfortunately, there’s only so many puns that can be squeezed out of Menomena’s band name. And we’ve already done them all (and probably repeated a few), to no small outpouring of acclaim. So, it sort of occurs to me that the most clever way I can tell you about their upcoming fall tour is to give it to you straight. Right? Right. Okay, so, pretend that you’re reading Spin or something, okay? Here we go:

Good day, ladies and gentlemen. I hereby wish to report to you the following piece of news regarding acclaimed Portland, OR-based art-rock trio, Menomena, which will then be followed by its direct corollary. (1) Menomena will release their fourth full-length record, Mines, July 27 via Barsuk Records, followed by a July 30 release in Germany and an August 2 release in the UK and Europe on City Slang. (2) As a direct result, the band will be taking to the road this fall in support of the release via the live exhibition of some or many or all of the tracks contained within the aforementioned release. The complete listing of these exhibitions is cataloged below and has been pre-arranged in chronological order by your humble reporter for your browsing convenience.

Please do what you will with this information. I thank you for your careful time and attention to this matter. Have an excellent day, and from all of us here at Tiny Mix Tapes, we wish you the best of luck with all of your future music-related endeavors. May all of your coals turn to diamonds.
