Modest Mouse Announces New Album “The Golden Casket”, Shares New Song “We Are Between”

By: Staff –

Returning with their first new album in six years, Modest Mouse will release their anxiously awaited seventh full-length, The Golden Casket, on June 25 via Epic Records. Pre-order/Pre-save The Golden Casket HERE.

The GRAMMY Award-nominated multi platinum band has also shared the first single off the release, the anthemic “We Are Between,” a song driven by frontman Issac Brock’s trademark vocals vacillating between sonic isolation and the support of a full chorus, with lyrics alternating between “the best” and “the worst” parts, determining that “we are somewhere between the dust and the stars.”

The Golden Casket heralds another new chapter in the band’s unpredictable evolution. Produced with Dave Sardy and Jacknife Lee in Los Angeles and in Modest Mouse’s studio in Portland, the album hovers in the liminal space between raw punk power and experimental studio science, Brock explores themes ranging from the degradation of our psychic landscapes and invisible technology, to fatherhood. The twelve tracks behave like amorphous organisms, undergoing dramatic mutations and mood swings that speak to the chronic tug-of-war between hope and despair that plays out in Brock’s head.

The Golden Casket tracklist:

  1. Fuck Your Acid Trip
  2. We Are Between
  3. We’re Lucky
  4. Walking and Running
  5. Wooden Soldiers
  6. Transmitting Receiving
  7. The Sun Hasn’t Left
