UPDATE – You can now listen to the first single “Lampshades on Fire” over at The Current.
Today is a good day for artists thought to be dead, hibernating, or otherwise apathetic about making music. Modest Mouse last released an album in 2007, and by the time March 3rd rolls around, we’ll have had an 8 year gap between Strangers to Ourselves (March 3, 2015) and We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank. I am going to go ahead and declare that “a very long time”.
Fevered anticipation will be stoked even more on Tuesday, however, when first single “Lampshades on Fire” hits the world at large. And if you can’t wait just one more day, here’s a poor-ish quality soundboard pull from the band’s 2011 Sasquatch show.
