Marr was part of the Modest Mouse set-up between 2006 and 2008, playing on the band’s album ‘We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank’ in 2007.
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 said.
Now, Marr has responded again to the suggestion on Twitter, responding to NME‘s query as to whether or not he’d be up for reuniting with the Oregon rockers.
“Food for thought. Modest Mouse was the best time of my life,” Marr wrote. “Still a great record, great shows.”

Earlier this week, Modest Mouse were announced as one of the headliners for next year’s Just Like Heaven festival in Pasadena, California. The bill also features the likes of Interpol, The Shins, M.I.A., Bloc Party and more.
Marr played guitar on the film’s score, appearing on the Billie Eilish and Finneas O’Connell-penned theme song. Marr joined Eilish to perform the song live for the first time at last year’s Brit Awards in February 2020.
