The band teased the news by announcing single 'Lampshades On Fire'
A spokesperson from Modest Mouse‘s label Epic Records has confirmed that the Washington band will release a new album in the first quarter of 2015.
The news was sparked by an Instagram photo posted by the band – their first since joining the social media site – showing a vinyl with the words ‘Side A: ‘Lampshades On Fire’.
Since then, as Revolt reports, a spokesperson for the band’s label has confirmed a full-length release for early 2015.
No further information regarding the album has been announced.
Modest Mouse’s last album was 2007’s ‘We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank’ – the band’s only full-length effort with Johnny Marr as a member of the band. It is yet to be announced whether Marr will make a return for their forthcoming release.
