Modest Mouse

Album: TBA
Release Date: TBA
When Strangers to Ourselves was released in 2015, there was a lot of speculation about why the first Modest Mouse full-length since 2007 didn't include the track that the indie rock veterans had reportedly recorded with Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic. No worries – that cut had been saved for later, not scrapped, along with enough songs for a second album. "We basically made two records at the same time," frontman Isaac Brock told Hot Press in March 2015. "Which, if people look at it that way, cuts down the amount of time it took us to make this record in half, man!" In that same interview, Brock promised a 2016 release, so it's likely we'll see something soon. As for the Novoselic track, Brock exclaimed, "It sounds like a bunch of boulders falling down a mountain!"
