It’s been eight long, slightly less fun years since Modest Mouse’s last album. Thankfully they’ve made the announcement that their next one is right around the corner. March the 3rd is the date you should mark off in your 2015 calendar, they’ve also let us know the album will be titled Strangers To Ourselves.

The details were released to a select few Modest Mouse fans, who were sent a vinyl test pressing of the first single from the album, Lampshades On Fire. Lucky bastards. The single officially drops on radio today and then for digital download tomorrow, though they’ve played it live as far back as 2011, it’s all kinds of groovy.
The band also posted the below photo on their Instagram of what could either be the album cover or the single artwork. Either way, this flurry of activity will have Modest Mouse fans chomping at the bit in anticipation. We’ll be here as more details emerge.
