Modest Mouse release

Last weekend, Modest Mouse released their first single in four years as a special limited release for Record Store Day.

While the A-Side, "Poison The Well", was released digitally on March 29th, the B-Side had remained exclusive to the Record Store Day release.

Yesterday that track, "I'm Still Here", was made available, and can now be purchased separately.

Also, in some promotional materials released for Record Store Day, the band indicated that their was more new music to come. Which might be released in a similar fashion to how they did the EP No One's First, And You're Next in 2009, where they released a set of limited 7" singles, followed by a more commercially available compilation (this is however just our speculation).

One of the messages read:

Good morning, afternoon, and evening Luckies,

The "Poison The Well" b/w "I'm Still Here" 7 inch is out now or soon or recently.

These are the first two songs in a series of installments.

Stream the track and see the message bellow.

Stream

"Poison The Well" is now available for streaming and can also be found on Modest Mouse's YouTube channel.

The track is also available for digital purchase in some markets, with more expected to follow tomorrow. So far only "Poison The Well" is available, it is not sure if the b-side, "I'm Still Here", will be included in the digital release, or if it will remain exclusive to the Record Store Day release coming April 13th.

Fans receiving puzzles in the mail?

UPDATE: The puzzle includes a note with a release date for "Poison the Well" of March 29th (we presume this is digital). With the physical vinyl single to come on Record Store Day, as we previously reported.

Last week Modest Mouse sent out messages to some users on Instagram and Twitter asking the following:

Hey. We made something for you.
it's smaller than the sky and larger than the air.
if you give us your name & shipping address, we'll overnight so it arrives by yesterday's mail.

This week fans have started to receive this package, which contains a triangular puzzle. This coincides with the band supposedly releasing a triangular 7" for Record Store Day containing the tracks "Poison The Well" and "I'm Still Here". However, it has been pointed out, that this listing has now been removed from the Record Store Day website.

Modest Mouse previously did something similar in late 2014, when they mailed "test pressings" of Lampshades On Fire to members of the fan community, to announce the release date for Strangers To Ourselves.

Been away for a bit and just got back to this piece of news, but it seems like "Poison The Well" is being released as a 7" single for Record Store Day 2019.

There's been no official word from the band, but the single is showing up on some websites related to the event taking place April 13th. From Record Store Day Canada's website, it looks like it will be released on a triangular 7" single and will also include a new song "I'm Still Here" as the B-side.

"Poison The Well" was one of the first new songs the band debuted live in the years leading up to the release of Strangers to Ourselves, but disappeared from setlists after 2012. The track was then the only new live song not to be included on that album. However in 2018 the band put it back into live rotation, performing it 36 times.

We'll keep you posted as we get closer to the date.

Modest Mouse reissue

Modest Mouse was one of the bands announced today by Ten Bands One Cause, that will be reissuing one of their albums on pink vinyl in support of Gilda's Club NYC. The band will be reissuing their 1996 debut full length This Is a Long Drive For Someone With Nothing to Think About to help the cause.

Gilda's Club was founded in 1995 in honour of SNL cast member Gilda Radner, who died of ovarian cancer. The organization provides support for people fighting cancer and their families. A documentary on Radner's life and career will be released in September, entitled Love, Gilda.

Since its inception in 2013, Ten Bands One Cause has raised over $200,000.

Voodoo Music + Arts Experience

Modest Mouse will be returning to this year's Voodoo Music + Arts Experience in New Orleans this year. The festival takes place over the Halloween weekend of October 26 to 28. A detailed schedule has not yet been released, so it is unknown which day Modest Mouse will actually be playing at present.

The band also announced more tour dates last month (I've been away), for the months of September and October. Judging by the amount of new cities and venues I had to enter, they are going to be touring in a lot of places they have not been before. Those tickets are on sale now.
