Modest Mouse release new song and announce that a new album will follow
It’s been over seven years since Modest Mouse last released an album (the Johnny Marr featuring ‘We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank‘). I’m a big fan and it’s been a frustrating wait. But over the last few days the band have been leaving little clues on their Instagram account, and over the weekend sent a limited edition 7″ of the their new tune, Lampshades On Fire. It’s a tune they’ve had in their locker for at least 3 years and has been played at a number of lives shows, and the good news for those who haven’t heard it yet is it’s a cracker. Classic Modest Mouse.
A new tune is good news in itself but the even better news is that a new album called, Strangers To Ourselves, is going to be released on the 3rd March next year. Finally the wait is over.
