First New Album in Six Years Produced with Dave Sardy (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Slayer, System of a Down) and Jacknife Lee (U2, R.E.M.)!

Returning with their first new album in six years, Grammy-nominated multi platinum band Modest Mouse delivers their anxiously awaited seventh full-length, The Golden Casket via Epic Records. The new collection is introduced by the anthemic "We Are Between," a song driven by Isaac Brock's trademark vocals vacillating between sonic isolation and the support of a full chorus, with lyrics alternating between "the best" and "the worst" parts, determining that "we are somewhere between the dust and the stars."

The Golden Casket heralds another new chapter in Modest Mouse's unpredictable evolution. Produced with Dave Sardy and Jacknife Lee in Los Angeles and in Modest Mouse's studio in Portland, the album hovers in the liminal space between raw punk power and experimental studio science, Brock explores themes ranging from the degradation of our psychic landscapes and invisible technology, to fatherhood. The twelve tracks behave like amorphous organisms, undergoing dramatic mutations and mood swings that speak to the chronic tug-of-war between hope and despair that plays out in Brock's head.
