Live music has returned to one of the most renowned Brewery’s in the world, Brewery Ommegang, located in the beautiful village of Cooperstown, NY. Fans were clearly excited as Modest Mouse with special guests The Districts have sold out the show in record time. With a new album and new US tour, including a slew of festivals, fans are in for a real treat.
Modest Mouse with the release of new music has plotted out an extensive US tour which will include festival stops at Lollapalooza in Chicago, Life is Beautiful in Las Vegas, and Austin City Limits in Austin, Texas. This is in addition to shows at NYC’s Brooklyn Steel, LA’s Theatre at the Ace Hotel, and DC’s The Anthem. They’ll also be joined on a string of dates by special guests, Future Islands, at their shows at Denver’s Red Rocks Amphitheater and Seattle’s Marymoor Park.
The band’s seventh- studio album, The Golden Casket, heralds another new chapter in the band’s unpredictable evolution. Over the past quarter century, Modest Mouse frontman Isaac Brock has served as indie rock’s resident backwoods philosopher, pondering his infinitesimal place in the world at large and seeking balance in a universe governed by polar opposites. On Modest Mouse’s earliest records, he was surveying the changes in the world’s physical landscape from the windows of the tour van, lamenting the displacement of natural beauty with big-box blights. The Golden Casket explores the degradation of America’s psychic landscape through the glass of the smartphone screen and invisible technology. In the early release of “Leave a Light On,” the song finds Brock navigating the existential threat of losing our humanity – and the interconnectedness that come with it – amidst a constant societal barrage of physical and digital materialism. We also see Brock touch on a new theme in his life, fatherhood in this new music.
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.
The Districts will join Modest Mouse on this leg of the tour. Promoting their latest release, You Know I’m Not Going Anywhere, the band followed their creative instincts every step of the way, resulting in their most sophisticated and adventurous record to date. This record is paradoxically the most-Districts record ever with no intention of ever being one at all. It’s about breaking free from how you’re seen, always being yourself first and holding on to who you are—but also about coming together as a whole and putting your ‘self’ aside.
