2013 and 2014 saw a huge success for Ménage in North America as the band toured both the US & Canada sharing stages with such bands as Stone Temple Pilots and Billy Talent. Songs hit playlists on the famous KROQ and were used on "Degrassi" on BBC 2 in the UK. The year continued to get better when Ménage won best rock song of the year in the International Portuguese Music Awards with their new single "Our Time is Now", out now. With mixer David Bottrill (Muse, Placebo, Peter Gabriel) and mastering engineer Ted Jensen (Radiohead, Bjork, Sigur Ros) on their side, this brother/sister, dual fronted band is ready to spread the music that inspires on an international level.
