We at The Debut have been following Menkena for quite a while now. They’ve been releasing their singles, “Rocketships” and “Red in the Morning” as well as others from their upcoming album for the better part of a year, leaving many wondering when their album will finally be released.

The announcement has finally been made. Menkena’s debut LP, titled “With You I’ll Travel” will be released on January 18th, and we couldn’t be more excited.

The guys at Menkena were kind enough to give us an advance copy of the album a while back and it’s pretty cool to know what’s about to be unleashed on everybody. It’s a stirring, harmonic monster of an album that fills every corner of the sonic landscape with every song. If you like music that goes beyond notes to pure transcendence, and really, who doesn’t, you’ll want to get your hands on this album.

Am I overselling it? Maybe. But I have a feeling 2011 is going to be Menkena’s year, and we’re thrilled to be along for the ride.
