Marr previously told NME in 2018 that he’d be open to reuniting with the band, saying: “I’ve got a feeling that Modest Mouse is a chapter that’s yet to be finished.”
“I hope [it’s an unfinished chapter]. I love being in a band with Johnny, it’s fuckin’ fun…,” he added.
“One thing I don’t think people expect because of the history – you know, The Smiths were a moody band and shit aesthetically, so people expect poetry not comedy – but Johnny’s fuckin’ hilarious. He’s one of the funniest dudes I know.”
Modest Mouse are set to be among the headliners at the Californian festival Just Like Heaven, which is set to return to Pasadena in May next year.
