Modest Mouse Modestly Announces Dates

Modest Mouse is filling up its summer schedule with dates in the States and provinces including stops in Kansas City, Boise and Missoula, as well as shows up north in Edmonton, Regina and Saskatoon.

We’re still waiting on news about a new LP. As we pointed out in March, Modest Mouse hasn’t let out as much as a squeak about the new tunes on any of its social media accounts since telling fans last year that it was canceling its European tour to continuing working on its forthcoming album. In June 2013 the band promised to make it up to fans and said new music was coming in 2014. Modest Mouse’s most recent studio album is 2007’s We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank.
