With the release in October 2012 of their  4th studio album Bye Bye Bayou
(Moi J'Connais RecordS) produced by Jon Spencer of the Jon Spencer Blues

After playing alongside Bellowhead  on their 20 date UK tour in November,
Mama Rosin are returning to the UK next February determined to bring their
savage sound to a wider audience. And they have ‘’a wild-eyed desire to fuck
