Modest Mouse formed in 1992 in Issaquah, Washington, and are currently based in Portland, Oregon.
According to a press release, Epic Records said of the new album:
“The Golden Casket heralds another new chapter in the band’s unpredictable evolution. Produced with Dave Sardy and Jacknife Lee in Los Angeles and in Modest Mouse’s studio in Portland, the album hovers in the liminal space between raw punk power and experimental studio science, frontman Isaac Brock explores themes ranging from the degradation of our psychic landscapes and invisible technology, to fatherhood. The twelve tracks behave like amorphous organisms, undergoing dramatic mutations and mood swings that speak to the chronic tug-of-war between hope and despair that plays out in Brock’s head.”
Modest Mouse will also be performing on the 2nd date of this year’s Life Is Beautiful Festival happening in Downtown Las Vegas this September.
