After teasing fans with an Instagram photo of a 7-inch vinyl record with the words, ‘Lampshades On Fire,’ scrawled on the center white label, a representative from Epic Records has confirmed that 2015 will bring with it a brand-new album from Modest Mouse.

As Revolt reports, once the photo of ‘Lampshades’ was shared with fans, the record rep verified the rumors, claiming the new Modest Mouse disc will hit the streets in the first quarter of the new year.
