Brent Knopf leaves Menomena

Posted by Greg , Tuesday, January 18, 2011 10:20 PM

Brent Knopf, one of the founding members of the indie rock group Menomena, has left the band.  According to the band's website:

After 10 years of fruit­ful col­lab­o­ra­tion, Brent Knopf has decided to part ways with Menom­ena to focus on Ramona Falls and other cre­ative pur­suits. We want to thank Brent for his vast con­tri­bu­tions over the years and wish him noth­ing but hap­pi­ness in all of his future endeav­ors. All three of us look for­ward to see­ing you soon!

The March US Tour will fea­ture Paul Alcott round­ing out the quartet.
Given the tension in the band, seemingly since its inception, this is not really a surprise.  And since Ramona Falls released one of my favorite albums of 2009, Intuit, I'm not exactly broken up to know we'll be hearing more from that band soon.  (It's too early in the year to be getting bummed out about this stuff...)
