Modest Mouse will release its latest album Strangers to Ourselves on March 17th via Glacial Pace. The follow-up to 2007’s We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank was co-produced by frontman Isaac Brock and recorded at his own Ice Cream Party studio in Portland, Oregon.
Already the band’s previewed the 15-track effort with “Lampshades on Fire”, “Coyotes”, and “The Best Room”. Now, they’ve let loose “The Ground Walks, With Time in a Box”, a choppy yet melodic tune that marries the differing sonic textures of past classics The Lonesome Crowded West and Good News For People Who Love Bad News. Listen in below.
Strangers to Ourselves features guest appearances from The Shins’ James Mercer, Tom Peloso, Jim Fairchild (Grandaddy), Dann Gallucci (Cold War Kids), Russell Higbee (formerly of Man Man), Ben Massaralla (Red Red Meat), Lisa Molinaro (Talkdemonic), Davey Brozowski (The Catheters), and more.
