After dropping hints earlier in the week, Modest Mouse have officially confirmed the rumors that they will be releasing a new album in 2015.
The new album will be the long-awaited follow-up to 2007’s We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank.
Yesterday, the band began the talk among fans when they officially joined Instagram and soon after posted a picture of a mysterious 7-inch record labeled, “Lampshades on Fire.”
Some fans began to make the connection between the name on the record with a song they debuted live in 2011 which was also named “Lampshades on Fire.”
But, it appears that is not where all the good Modest Mouse new ends today. Though there is no projected release date for the upcoming, yet-to-be-titled record, there has been confirmation by 91X DJ, Robin Roth, that “Lampshade on Fire” will make its radio debut on Monday (Dec. 15).
As label representative confirmed that Modest Mouse is slated to release the new album through Epic Records sometime during the first quarter of 2015.
The Washington-based band were previously confirmed for KROQ’s almost Acoustic Christmas.
