Washington’s Modest Mouse have announced a full UK Tour for July this year following a series of US and European dates.
Formed in 1993 in Issaquah, Washington Modest Mouse over the last decade have become the indie rock standard and one of the few bands capable of treading the narrow path where massive popularity is possible without sacrificing their long-time fans.
The band released their first full-length album, ‘This Is A Long Drive For Someone With Nothing To Think About’, on the Up label in 1996. With the release of their second album, The Lonesome Crowded West in 1997, the band’s status reached new heights with a legion of fans and critical acclaim. In 2000, Modest Mouse was signed to Epic Records and released their third album, The Moon & Antarctica. In 2004 came the release of their breakthrough album, Good News For People Who Love Bad News, which included the hit “Float On” and has sold over 1.5 million copies and earned the band two Grammy nominations
Modest Mouse released We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank, on March 20, 2007 and immediately entered the Billboard Top 200 chart at #1. Most recently the band released the EP No One’s First, And You’re Next and also reissued Moon & Antartica on vinyl.
Modest Mouse will be performing at Coachella and around Europe before heading back to the UK this July which also includes a slot at this year’s T In The Park and Latitude:
