Published Mar 20, 2019If you've been paying attention to Modest Mouse recently, you know the band are plotting their return. From tour announcements to mysterious mail-out puzzles, all signs point to them releasing new material, and we now know exactly when we're getting our first taste of that.
On March 29, Modest Mouse will release the new single "Poison the Well." That's its cover art above, and it's indeed what those puzzles were hinting at.
If you were paying close attention to the Record Store Day list, though, this shouldn't be too much of a surprise. After all, it listed Modest Mouse putting out a "Poison the Well" 7-inch, which we now know will be pressed on "triangular mint-green vinyl" on April 13. The 7-inch will also reportedly feature another track on the B-side.
Modest Mouse previously debuted "Poison the Well" in concert, and you check it out below.
The band recently announced plans to tour alongside the Black Keys. You can see all the dates for that here.
Modest Mouse's last album was 2015's Strangers to Ourselves.
