Watch Modest Mouse perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live

With little warning yesterday, it was announced that Modest Mouse would be performing on Jimmy Kimmel Live that night. The performance was in fact recorded the day before, where the band played a set of five songs. Only the performance of "The Ground Walks, with Time in a Box" was broadcast last night.

Watch the band perform below. They are now on their way to South Africa, for the first shows they will have played in that country. The tour then continues on May 23rd in the States, where Modest Mouse will headline the Sasquatch Music Festival.

Here's also a recording of "Wicked Campaign".

Modest Mouse perform

Last week Modest Mouse reissued their Interstate 8 EP and Building Nothing out of Something compilation on vinyl. Both come out tomorrow on CD.

Last night in Ithica, NY, the band performed a track that appears on both of those albums: "Sleepwalking". The last time it was documented that this song was performed was in 1996 at Fletcher's in Baltimore, MD.

"Sleepwalking" is based on a Santo & Johnny's 1959 hit "Sleep Walk", with original lyrics then added by Modest Mouse. Watch the performance below (thanks to Norman McKenney), along with the Santo & Johnny original UPDATE: The videos have since been removed.
