Isaac Brock performing solo later this month in Seattle

UPDATE: Not sure what happened exactly, but apparently Isaac was replaced with The Head And The Heart, and this was only posted on the Ticketfly event page the day before the show, with no reason given. We're only learning of this now.

Modest Mouse's official website has posted a solo date for Isaac later this month in Seattle, WA on August the 26th.

The event is being hosted by winemaker Charles Smith and is being described as follows:

In celebration of his new, special release, barrel-aged K Vintners Jet City Riesling, award-winning winemaker Charles Smith is hosting the first-annual Jet City Riesling Revolution on Saturday, August 26 at Charles Smith's Jet City in Seattle. Showing consumers a new, radical side of Riesling and creating the ultimate wine-tasting experience, Charles is bringing together 18 premier wineries primarily from the Pacific Northwest and a few favorites from Germany to showcase the best Riesling including Charles & Charles Riesling, the famed Kung Fu Girl Riesling and K Vintners Jet City Riesling, which is only available for a limited time at the event and in the Jet City tasting room.

Following the tasting, performances by Calexico and a rare solo performance by Isaac Brock, Modest Mouse frontman, making this a truly one-of-a-kind event.

Tickets are on sale now for $45, and are apparently extremely limited.

Isaac Brock's last recorded solo performance was back in 2012, when he participated in benefit show for Joel Burrows.

Some interviews

Wow, it's been almost 6 months since the last major news posting, and not much has been happening other than the announcement of one festival date coming up this May. Hopefully that gives way to maybe some new news or additional tour dates.

In the meantime, three interviews have surfaced in the last week with Isaac, Jeremiah, and Davey. All three don't really concern anything new, but are worth a listen.

Isaac talks about skateboarding and the song Shit Luck having been used in so many skate videos, as well as touching on the music industry and how canceling tours is expensive.

Jeremiah and Davey are both interviewed by the The Trap Set, the interviews were both recorded before their show at The Forum last year in California. Their interviews touch more on their early careers. Jeremiah also touches on some of the topics he spoke about during his Shit Show interview from 2015, and Davey talks about how he got the job with Modest Mouse after Joe left.

Listen to the Isaac interview below. The interviews with Jeremiah and Davey can be found here and here respectively.

Thanks to Jamie and Barnacles for sending this in.

Jim Fairchild rig rundown

Modest Mouse news has been a little quiet since the band finished their tour a little over a month ago, but here's a decent length interview with Jim Fairchild talking about his guitar setup that has just been brought to our attention.

The interview was taped just before the band's Nashville show back in July by Premier Guitar. Jim talks about a wide range of his guitars, as well as his peddle setup, and how the "steel drum" sound on "Ansel" was actually performed on a ukulele.

Night On The Sun EP reissue

Glacial Pace has announced that they are reissuing the 1999, Japanese only, Night On The Sun EP. The EP should not be confused with the slightly more common Night On The Sun 12".

As mentioned, the EP was originally only released in Japan during Modest Mouse's 1999 tour, only on CD, and limited to 700 copies. The reissue will be released on both CD and vinyl. It also seems that it will feature slightly altered artwork.

The 6 track EP is available now for pre-order, with shipping/delivery occurring closer to the July 29th release date.

In other reissue news, it has also been announced that a 12" test pressing of the Whenever You See Fit reissue, has been donated for a charity auction to Studio for Schools. A non profit organization that seeks to design and build music and film production studios in low-income schools. Find out more about the auction and the charity here.
