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.

Whenever You See Fit reissue

As part of their 20th anniversary celebratory series, Suicide Squeeze is reissuing the 1998 collaboration between Modest Mouse and 764-HERO, Whenever You See Fit.

The track list of the single is remaining the same, however the artwork has been slightly updated by designer Jesse LeDoux. The 12" will also be released on half blue and half yellow wax, and will be limited to 1000 copies. Pre-orders will ship on June 24, 2016.

Mark Kozelek covers Modest Mouse again

Some of artists being covered on the album include 10CC, David Bowie, Bob Seger, and Waylon Jennings. Guest singers include Mike Patton and Mimi Parker, although it is unknown yet if either will appear on the Modest Mouse track.

Eric Judy and other collaborations

Here's something that's been on our radar for a few months, but has slipped through the gaps while we've been trying to get more information.

Eric Judy has a new project called RudyWaltz with Robin Perringer and Mat Brooke. Perringer and Brooke were both in the band Carissa's Wierd and Band of Horses, although not at the same time for the latter. Perringer was then in 764-Hero and had a brief sting as Modest Mouse's touring guitarist. Brooke started Grand Archives.

The band has put out some demos, and has played a handful of shows in Seattle, WA over the past few months. Listen below.

In other collaboration news, Isaac Brock has contributed backing vocals to the song "Beautiful You" on Mark Kozelek's new album Jesu/Sun Kil Moon (itself a collaboration with Kozelek's Sun Kil Moon and Justin Broadrick's Jesu). The album was released this past Thursday. Sun Kil Moon recorded an album of Modest Mouse covers back in 2005.
