Modest Mouse Announce Upcoming Spring Tour


After announcing that they would be headlining this years Boston Calling with the likes of Brand New and Death Cab for Cutie, Modest Mouse have announced that they will be heading out on their own headlining tour.

It’s been seven years since the band last released their last record, We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank, and now it looks like the band are finally going to be putting out new material. Signs of new material have been popping up all over the internet for quite sometime including a new track titled, “Be Brave” that was performed at last year’s Coachella.

This comes as great news for fans of the Washington state-based band considering that last year they cancelled their European tour to finish up the last remaining bits of the new album. Since a short, United States tour is currently on the map, it looks like the new album might be coming sometime in 2014, but when exactly remains to be seen.
