It's official: Modest Mouse has cancelled their upcoming European tour consisting of 29 dates. The official word from the band is that they are using this time to complete their new album, tentatively due out next year.
After much thought, we have decided to cancel our EU/UK tour to continue work on our forthcoming album. We do appreciate our fans and promise that we will make it up to you next year.
Refunds will be available at the point of purchase.
We look forward to sharing our new music with the world next year.
As of now, the only tour date still on is the First City Festival in Monterey, CA, on August 24, where they will be headlining with Passion Pit.
In other news, yesterday's static image on the band's website has returned to the original homepage. Although the site traffic is understandably taking quite a beating at the moment.
