It was almost the album that never was. Modest Mouse have talked, and pushed back release dates, and talked, and now they'll finally unveil their new album We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank on March 20th.
Although the album title makes it sound like a complete bummer album, any news of a new Modest Mouse release is good news!
The album will be the first to feature new guitarist Johnny Marr, who was a member of the Smiths in a former musical life. The album also features an appearance from The Shins' James Mercer on a number of tracks.
Modest Mouse is set to play at All Tomorrow's Parties ATP vs. the Fans weekend and Spain's Primavera Festival in May. They'll also hit London's Royal Albert Hall on May 23rd.
