Indie-pop group The Mommyheads formed in New York City in 1987, disbanded in 1998 for a decade, and reformed in 2008. In September 2018, they will release their 11th full-length album, “Soundtrack to the World’s End.”

The band is the brainchild of Adam Elk, who was still in high school when the first two Mommyheads records — 1988’s “Magumbo Meatpie” and 1989’s “Acorn” — were released. Throughout their first decade as a band, The Mommyheads put out releases. During that time, they also relocated from NYC to San Francisco and underwent a string of lineup changes. It was after the release of “The Mommyheads” on Geffen that they broke up. Most of the band’s members went on to launch successful solo careers and other collaborative projects, and early Mommyheads songs would go on to be covered by artists like Jenny Toomey and Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin.

Following the death of original drummer Jan Kotik in 2007, The Mommyheads reunited for a tribute show in NYC. They decided to reform shortly after and released new album, “You’re Not A Dream,” in 2008. 2010 saw the release of a remastered version of 1994’s “Flying Suit” and a retrospective album called “Finest Specimens,” as well as a track featured in a Time Warner Cable commercial. In 2011 the band released “Delicate Friction,” their first album of all-new material since the mid-’90s, and followed it with “Vulnerable Boy” in 2012.

“Soundtrack to the World’s End” is due out on Sept. 7, and The Mommyheads will perform live in New York and across Sweden this fall in support of the new album.
