25 Most Anticipated Albums of Fall 2016

25 of 26

Modest Mouse, TBA, TBA 2016

We don’t have a title or an official release date, but we do know that the next Modest Mouse album will feature Krist Novoselic, bassist from Nirvana. This next album is also going to be the companion piece to Strangers To Ourselves, which was released in March of 2015.

"Open up the window, All the air, oh the air is falling out. Eyes vacuum up light; Sound gets trapped by the mouth We’ll deal with the remainder when the dents, The dents get hammered out. Then we’ll travel through time. The world’s an inventor with it’s work Crawlin, runnin, squirmin ’round. Trees drop colorful fruits Directly into our mouths. The world’s an inventor, We’re the dirtiest thing it’s thought about… And we really don’t mind. -“The Ground Walks, with Time in a Box”"

Strangers To Ourselves gave us “The Ground Walks, with Time in a Box”, included above, and was just as good as any other Modest Mouse album has ever been. Probably because Modest Mouse has never had an issue with making music that is genuine.

The next album could be titled Whabever, a play on the word “whatever”. Stay tuned for more.
