“We knew we had to make another album, but it took us a while,” Modest Mouse drummer Jeremiah Green told USA Today in a March interview. In the absence of a new record, the band members kept busy writing music, touring, practicing and focusing on other music related efforts, Eric Judy, the founding bassist, would even find his exit somewhere in there. On March 13, fans anxiously awaiting the release of new music got what they were waiting for with Modest Mouse’s sixth studio album, Strangers to Ourselves. On Friday, April 24, Modest Mouse’s current roster that includes Isaac Brock, lead vocals, guitar, banjo and keyboards; Lisa Molinaro, strings, vocals and keyboards; Tom Peloso, upright bass, trumpet, keyboard, fiddle; Jim Fairchild, guitar and vocals; Jeremiah Green, drums and percussion; and Russell Higbee, bass upright bass and guitar, will perform at Oklahoma’s Diamond Ballroom. Joined by Morning Teleportation, the show will begin at 7 p.m. For more information, visit www.diamondballroom.net.
