Modest Mouse to return with new album, share lead single “We Are Between”

It’s been some time now since we last received a proper Modest Mouse LP – six years to be exact. It’s no real surprise, as the indie rockers age, they only return when they feel genuinely compelled to share something. Whatever your opinion of 2016’s Strangers to Ourselves, it’s nice to see the icons still enjoying each other’s company as well as the creative process.

Hence, it’s heartwarming news that they’re set to return with a new album, The Golden Casket, come June 25th. Recorded in both L.A. and their Portland home studio, the album was produced alongside Dave Sardy and Jacknife Lee. Check out the project’s lead single, “We Are Between”, below, along with the project’s tracklist (and that’s its, shall we say, crowded, cover art below). With the grim nature of our current reality, it’s a great time for a healthy dose of nostalgia. Let’s hope Modest Mouse deliver.

You can find Modest Mouse on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. The Golden Casket arrives on June 25 through Epic (pre-order/save).

The tracklist is:

01. Fuck Your Acid Trip
02. We Are Between
03. We’re Lucky
04. Walking and Running
05. Wooden Soldiers
06. Transmitting Receiving
07. The Sun Hasn’t Left
08. Lace Your Shoes
09. Never Fuck A Spider On The Fly
10. Leave A Light On
11. Japanese Trees
12. Back To The Middle
