Modest Mouse: Strangers to Ourselves LP
Strangers To Ourselves marks the first album in eight years from Pacific Northwest luminaries Modest Mouse and the long awaited follow-up to their platinum 2007 release We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank. Their sixtth full-length recording overall, the 15-track offering is preceded by the well received lead single "Lampshades on Fire."
We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank, featuring The Smith's Johnny Marr, debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 and was released to rave reviews. In 2009, the band issued a collection of unreleased songs and b-sides entitled No One's First And You're Next, and, in 2012, they premiered a 45-minute documentary on the making of 1997 masterpiece The Lonesome Crowded West.
Since playing Coachella in 2013, the group headlined Fun Fun Fun Fest and re-released their critically-acclaimed albums This Is a Long Drive for Someone With Nothing to Think About, and The Lonesome Crowded West, on Glacial Pace. Both earned "Best New Reissue" ratings from Pitchfork, with The Lonesome Crowded West earning a perfect 10/10 score.
