Things at the Moneen camp appear to be slowly getting active again. Kenny tweeted "things are happening" a few days ago, and now it has been announced that the band are playing an acoustic set at the "My Friends Over You" one-year anniversary party in Toronto. He also shared that The Red Tree would be repressed with a bonus 7" for Record Store Day.

I will be interviewing the Moneenthis weekend so if you didn't get a chance to contribute to the questions you want to hear answered, then here's your chance. Post your questions in the replies and then listen to The Red Tree on repeat for the rest of the day.
If you hit rewind for 1 minute and 9 seconds at the very beginning of Moneen's new album, The Red Tree, you might just find a special hidden track (similar to how the hidden track on Armor For Sleep's What to Do When You Are Dead worked).
