The string of dates is set to celebrate 25 years since the release of the band’s album of the same name, which dropped in 1997.

Tickets for the new tour go on sale Friday (September 9). Visit HERE for more information.

To commemorate the anniversary, Modest Mouse will be releasing vinyl records via Glacial Pace Recordings. A limited amount will be available for pre-order as an add-on with each ticket purchased and will also be available for sale at each show.

The record, produced by Calvin Johnson in Seattle, will serve as the impetus for Modest Mouse’s plans to tour, going out as a four-piece with original members Isaac Brock, Jeremiah Green, Russell Higbee, and Simon O’Connor.

The Lonesome Crowded West was Modest Mouse’s followup to their acclaimed 1996 debut, This Is A Long Drive For Someone With Nothing To Think About. Featuring songs like “Cowboy Dan,” “Doin’ The Cockroach” and “Trucker’s Atlas,” nearly every track has been part of Modest Mouse’s ever-rotating setlists, but this will be the first time fans can hear them in order from start to finish.
