Named after a passage from a Virginia Woolf story, Washington outfit Modest Mouse grew from cult outsiders to Grammy-nominated chart-toppers with an introspective blend of lo-fi indie and melodic post-rock. Formed in 1994 by lead vocalist Isaac Brock, bassist Eric Judy and drummer Jeremiah Green, the band released their debut E.P., Blue Cadet-3, Do You Connect?, in the same year before heading into the studio with the producer who would later become Seasick Steve to work on their first studio effort, Sad Sappy Sucker. Due to record company wrangling, the record would only surface seven years later, and the group’s 1996 release, This Is A Long Drive for Someone With Nothing To Think About, was crowned their official debut album. 1997 sophomore The Lonesome Crowded West and the Interstate 8 and The Fruit That Ate Itself E.P.s cemented their popularity on the indie circuit before the band scored their first entry on the Billboard 200 with 2000’s The Moon & Antarctica. The group further boosted their profile when they joined the likes of The Hackensaw Boys, De La Soul and The Flaming Lips on the Unlimited Sunshine Tour in 2002, and two years later, they reached the US Top 20 with fourth album, Good News For People Who Love Bad News, which alongside lead single “Float On,” also picked up a Grammy nod. In 2006, former The Smiths’ guitar hero Johnny Marr joined the line-up in time for We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank, which confounded all expectations by peaking at number one on the US charts in the spring of 2007. Following a two-year stint touring the record, Marr left to join British indie trio The Cribs, and was replaced by Grandaddy’s Jim Fairchild, while 2009 rarities collection, No One’s First and You’re Next, temporarily satisfied fans’ appetite for new material. The band subsequently took a long hiatus from the studio, choosing instead to focus on their reputation as a live act with various headlining tours and festival sets at the likes of Coachella, Splendour in the Grass and Boston Calling. In late 2014, the group released their first new single in seven years with “Lampshades on Fire,” and issued its long-awaited parent album, Strangers To Ourselves, shortly after.
