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.
