Modest Mouse’s new album is so close to being released that fans who have waited eight years for the new material can almost taste it.
Considering the new album was supposed to be released today (it was pushed back until the 17th for some unknown reason), the band decided to treat their fans with a brand new song from Strangers to Ourselves.
The newly released track is titled “Of Course We Know” which happens to be the closing track on the record.
Check out the song below which joins previously released track, “Lampshades on Fire,” “Coyotes,” “The Best Room,” and “The Ground Walks, With Time in a Box.”
New music isn’t the only good news Modest Mouse has revealed. The band will be heading out on tour beginning on Saturday (March 7) making an appearance at Tampa’s Gasparilla Music Festival. The tour appears to be a combination of some solo tour dates as well as a slew of upcoming festival both in the United States and in Europe.
