Modest Mouse Tease New Music on Instagram

This could be their follow-up to 'We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank'

Modest Mouse have an Instagram account, and more importantly, they might also have new music on the way. The lo-fi folk group posted a picture of a record with the words “Side A” and “Lampshades On Fire” written on it.

It was known that they were working on a new album, as the group canceled their European tour in 2013 to work full time on the proper follow-up to We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank. Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic was also reported to be playing bass on one song, but we haven’t gotten any news on that front in a while.

Modest Mouse haven’t released any new music since their 2009 EP No One’s First and You’re Nextthough they have played several unreleased songs in concert over the past couple years, including one with the same name as the recently Instagramed record. Search the band’s Instagram for clues below, and listen to a soundboard recording of “Lampshades On Fire” from a 2011 concert below that.
