Modest Mouse have been working on the follow-up to 2007’s We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank for what feels like an eternity — news of an as yet unheard collaboration with Big Boi arrived well over three years ago — but it seems like Isaac Brock might finally be giving us some new music. The band started a new Instagram account today, and the first post appears to be a teaser for a new 7″ called “Lampshades On Fire.” Here’s the post.
No further info at this time, but it seems like 2015 could be the year we finally get a new Modest Mouse album. As Pitchfork points out, the band has been performing a song called “Lampshades On Fire” on tour since 2011. Here’s a recording from the soundboard at that year’s Sasquatch! Festival.
