Getting their start in the musical hub of Seattle in the 1990’s, Modest Mouse brings a unique sound to the alternative world. Led by Isaac Brock on vocals and guitar, the Issaquah based band has released six studio albums, six extended plays, one live album, and 25 singles. Since their most recent album, Strangers to Ourselves, was released three years ago, the band hopes to revive fan interest with their 2018 tour.
Modest Mouse first received critical acclaim in 2000 with their release of The Moon & Antarctica, which attracted a huge indie following. At first, a majority of their fan base was the indie and alternative crowd, but their release of We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank in 2007 brought them mainstream success. Songs like “Dashboard,” “Missed the Boat,” and “Fire It Up” proved that Brock and Modest Mouse had what it took to become a popular band. While their development of new material has slowed in the past few years, songs like the 2014 single “Lampshades on Fire” help the band stay relevant2 in the 21st century.
Modest Mouse will play at the Anthem on Monday, April 30th. The show is part of summer 2018 tour that will run all the way until July 21st. Monday night’s concert will start at 8 PM, and the doors will open at 6:30 p.m. More information can be found here.
