Modest Mouse Announce 2017 U.S. Tour
Modest Mouse haven’t released an album since 2015’s Strangers to Ourselves, but that’s not stopping them from going on the road. Today, they revealed a two-and-a-half week tour of the U.S. for the spring.
Unfortunately for their fans on the East Coast and most of the Midwest, they’re staying mostly on the West Coast and never venturing east of St. Louis, the second-to-last night on the tour. Instead, they’re starting at the Knitting Factory in Spokane, Wash., on May 23 and winding up at the Pinewood Bowl in Lincoln, Neb., on June 10. You can see all the dates below and get full ticket information at their website.
Strangers to Ourselves was their first full-length release since 2007’s We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank, a period that saw former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr join the band for a few years. But outside of a co-headlining tour with Brand New last summer, they’ve kept a low profile. Shortly after that tour concluded, singer Isaac Brock caused a multi-car crash when he fell asleep at the wheel. Fortunately, there were no serious injuries reported, and Brock was cited for careless driving.
