Not only will Modest Mouse play the album in its entirety for the first time live, but they also plan to harken back to the original Lonesome Crowded West era by touring once again as a four-piece. The lineup will include original members Isaac Brock and Jeremiah Green, alongside Russell Higbee and Simon O’Connor.
The Lonesome Crowded West anniversary tour will kick off Nov. 18 at the Wilma Theater in Missoula, Montana, and wrap Dec. 17 at Terminal 5 in New York City. Tickets will go on sale this Friday, Sept. 9, at 10 a.m. local time. Full info is available on Modest Mouse’s website.
Along with the anniversary tour, Modest Mouse are prepping a special reissue of The Lonesome Crowded West on vinyl picture disc. A limited number of copies will be available to pre-order as an add-on with concert tickets to the upcoming tour. Copies will also be available to purchase at each show.
Modest Mouse released their most recent studio album, The Golden Casket, last June.
