Mark Kozelek covers Modest Mouse again

Mark Kozelek will be releasing a new album of covers on May 27 titled Mark Kozelek Sings Favorites. The album will include a cover of Modest Mouse's 2004 single "Float On".

Some of artists being covered on the album include 10CC, David Bowie, Bob Seger, and Waylon Jennings. Guest singers include Mike Patton and Mimi Parker, although it is unknown yet if either will appear on the Modest Mouse track.

Kozelek's Sun Kil Moon previously released an entire album of Modest Mouse covers titled Tiny Cities back in 2005. Isaac Brock just contributed vocals to his track "Beautiful You" off his latest album a few weeks ago.

Eric Judy and other collaborations

Here's something that's been on our radar for a few months, but has slipped through the gaps while we've been trying to get more information.

Eric Judy has a new project called RudyWaltz with Robin Perringer and Mat Brooke. Perringer and Brooke were both in the band Carissa's Wierd and Band of Horses, although not at the same time for the latter. Perringer was then in 764-Hero and had a brief sting as Modest Mouse's touring guitarist. Brooke started Grand Archives.

The band has put out some demos, and has played a handful of shows in Seattle, WA over the past few months. Listen below.

In other collaboration news, Isaac Brock has contributed backing vocals to the song "Beautiful You" on Mark Kozelek's new album Jesu/Sun Kil Moon (itself a collaboration with Kozelek's Sun Kil Moon and Justin Broadrick's Jesu). The album was released this past Thursday. Sun Kil Moon recorded an album of Modest Mouse covers back in 2005.

Modest Mouse heading to Australia in the new year

Usually I try to avoid news posts for single tour dates, but with news having been really slow as of late, and the tour finally ending recently, I think the first date of 2016 needs an announcement.

Modest Mouse has been added to the lineup of the Byron Bay Bluesfest taking place at the Tyagarah Tea Farm in New South Wales, AU. Their performance is scheduled for Sunday, March 27th.

Normally I doubt the band would travel that distance and not play other shows, so I would expect additional Australian dates to be added at some point. This will be Modest Mouse's first show in Australia since 2011.

Sharpen Your Teeth reissued with additional tracks

Glacial Pace has announced that Ugly Casanova's 2002 album Sharpen Your Teeth will be reissued this October on CD and LP.

The LP version has been out of print for a long time, and will include four additional tracks. Three of these tracks are available the other Ugly Casanova 7"s, the Magic Eye Singles compilation and the Diggin Holes single. The fourth track is an unreleased instrumental titled "They Devised a Plan to Fuck Forever".

It is presumed that with the addition of these four new tracks, the etching on the original vinyl will be removed. Glacial Pace is also doing a limited run of the vinyl on yellow / white wax.

Both the CD and LP are now available for pre-order from Glacial Pace's store.

Late Night with Seth Meyers

Update, 7/22 9:39 AM PST: The band performed "Pups to Dust". Watch the performance below.

It has been announced that Modest Mouse will be the musical guests on Late Night with Seth Meyers this coming Tuesday, July 21st. Adam Sandler and Margaret Cho are the other guests for that evening.

As with most TV performances, it's sometimes hard to know if this will be pre-recorded, but seeing as how the band is performing in Brooklyn the following day, there is a good chance the date is accurate. If you're going to be in NY, there might still be tickets available for the taping.

Lastly, we've been slack with updates in the last few weeks, and our email seems to have been stuck (for a while). All the latest set lists and tour dates are in now, and we'll be back to regular posting as the tour continues. I'll also start making my way through a few months worth of emails.

Posted 2015/07/01 at 11:34 | By: Gregg | Tags: Modest Mouse, Video

Modest Mouse debuted a new music video this morning for "The Ground Walks, with Time in a Box" via NPR. We had earlier reported that the band was working on a video last month.

The video seems to follow the concept Isaac originally discussed for a "Pistol" video, but the band seems to have used the idea for this song instead.

The video was directed by Jorge Torres-Torres, the same director behind the "Lampshades on Fire" video, and also seems to feature at least one character from that video (The eyelash lady sings parts of the chorus). The video was shot in the Tillamook State Forest.

There also seems to be a little shout out to Game of Thrones. Watch below.

New music video in the works

Courtesy of Sofia Flash's Instagram

Some images have shown up on the Instagram account of a Sofie Flash, who appears to have been an extra for a new Modest Mouse video that was being shot approximately 2 weeks ago.

The images seem to closely relate to the concept Isaac described in the BuzzFeed interview back in March, in which he mentioned he wanted to make a video in the Tillamook State Forest with Crispen Glover for "Pistol" (references to Glover seem to have been removed from that article now though).

Thanks to Dani for tracking these down. See more of Sofie Flash's photographs below.

Modest Mouse reissue Everywhere and his Nasty Parlour Tricks

In a very quiet and unexpected move, Glacial Pace added a reissue of Modest Mouse's 2001 EP Everywhere and his Nasty Parlour Tricks on both LP and CD to their online store last night. The EP was originally released on Epic, which Glacial Pace is still a connected to, if not still a subsidiary of.

The EP is already available for purchase, this is not a pre-order.

They've also added a special $200 Modest Mouse Vinyl Collection, which includes all 12 major Modest Mouse albums and EPs.
