Modest Mouse Announces Summer Tour Dates Behind 'Strangers to Ourselves'
Modest Mouse has recently announced a summer tour in support of its new album, Strangers to Ourselves, which dropped in March. The lengthy trek includes festival stops at Sasquatch!, Forecastle and Maha. The group will wrap things up in October at Austin City Limits, Consequence of Sound notes.
Other notable stops on the jaunt include the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View on June 6, the Brooklyn Bowl in Las Vegas on Aug. 20 and MusicFest NW in Portland on Aug. 23. Check out the full schedule below.
Strangers to Ourselves peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200. The album received mostly positive reviews.
"Singer-songwriter Isaac Brock and drummer Jeremiah Green, aided by a cast of dozens, including the Shins' James Mercer, have stuffed Strangers to Ourselves to infinity with textural detail and manic leaps in style: the chamber-folk title song, the rococo hip-hop of 'Lampshades on Fire,' the '79-Talking Heads sprint 'The Ground Walks, With Time in a Box,' Rolling Stone wrote.
