One of the biggest names in indie music today, Modest Mouse's success has been built on the back of releasing remarkablyconsistent albums in recent years. Their breakthrough can be traced back to the release of 1997's The Lonesome CrowdedWest, after which the band were picked up by Epic Records, with whom they released The Moon And Antarctica, whichtook them to a new level of popularity, thanks in part to the licensing of one song from it for commercial use by Nissan. In spiteof drummer Jeremiah Green quitting before the recording of Good News For People Who Love Bad News , this saw them hita whole new demographic, thanks in part to the success of single Float On, and appearances on shows such as The O.C.The band also have the dubious achievement of having been mentioned by name in a United States Supreme Court ruling, withJustice David Souter mentioning them in the case of MGM vs. Grokster, perhaps removing any remaining indie credibilitythat they may have had left. In 2006, frontman Isaac Brock began workingwith former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr on sometracks for their new album. They ended up liking each other and Marr agreed to tour with the band supporting their new album.The album's title is We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank, and it will be released on December 19th, 2006. « hide
