Modest Mouse Explore A Loss Of Humanity On ‘Leave A Light On’ And Announce 2021 Tour Dates

Modest Mouse haven’t exactly been prolific in recent years. Their latest album, Strangers To Ourselves, came out in 2015. The preceding album, We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank, dropped in 2007. Things are picking up now, though, as they announced a long-awaited new album, The Golden Casket, for this year. Now they’ve shared another preview of the album, a song called “Leave A Light On.”

Press materials describe the lush, lightly psychedelic, mid-tempo rocker of a single, “The song finds Brock navigating the existential threat of losing our humanity — and the interconnectedness that come with it — amidst a constant societal barrage of physical and digital materialism.”

Listen to “Leave A Light On” above. Additionally, the band has also announced a slew of 2021 tour dates, so find those below.
