Possible album artwork? has been updated with what could possibly be the artwork and colour scheme for the new album, "We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank."

"Dashboard", the first single off Modest Mouse's upcoming album, "We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank," is now available for download from iTunes. The rest of the album, due to be released March 20th, is now also available for pre-order from them as well. The iTunes pre-order also comes with an extra video track entitled "A Fisherman's Tale," which is a behind the scenes look into the making of the group's latest video.

There also seems to now be conflicting album art between iTunes and MySpace, iTunes having a similar cover to the single and MySpace having one similar to what we reported on earlier today.

Primavera Sound Festival - Barcelona, Spain

Modest Mouse will be performing along side Built To Spill, Slint and others sometime between May 31st and June 2nd at the Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona, Spain. More acts are to be announced as the date draws closer, although as it appears to be in conjunction with ATP, the line up will probably be similar to the English festival.

Modest Mouse in Mexico?

Inland Empire Touring, who handled Modest Mouse's touring back in the day (2005 I think...), have updated their tour page with a single entry for March 10th in Mexico City at the Foro Sol stadium. There is nothing yet mentioned on the venue page at, but that would probably be the best place to start looking for tickets and if the date turns out to be confirmed.
