Modest Mouse Concert
Sunday, Oct. 17, 2021 | 7 p.m. at St. Augustine Amphitheatre
The Indie Rock/Art Punk band Modest Mouse will bring music from their forthcoming seventh album, The Golden Casket, to the St. Augustine Amphitheatre stage Oct. 17, 2021.
Formed in Issaquah, Washington, in 1992, Modest Mouse is nown as one of the most consistent live bands around. In its current evolution, founding members Issaac Brock (singer/guitarist), Jeremiah Green (drummer) are joined by Tom Peloso (upright bass, backing vocals), Jim Fairchild (guitar, backing vocals), Lisa Molinaro (viola, bass, backing vocals), Russell Higbee (bass guitar, rhythm guitar), Ben Massarella (percussion) and Darrin Wiener (keyboards, effects).
The Golden Casket herald another new chapter in the band’s unpredictable evolution. The album explores the degradation of America’s psychic landscape through the glass of the smartphone screen and invisible technology. Lead singer Issaac Brock also touches on a new theme in his life, fatherhood.
Produced with Dave Sardy and Jacknife Lee in Los Angeles and in Modest Mouse’s studio in Portland, the album hovers in the liminal space between raw punk power and experimental studio science.
Early releases include “We Are Between” and “Leave a Light On,” which finds lead singer Issaac Brock navigating the existential threat of losing our humanity — and the interconnectedness that comes with it — amidst a constant societal barrage of physical and digital materialism.
The band’s current U.S. tour will include festival stops at Lollapalooza in Chicago, Life is Beautiful in Las Vegas and Austin City Limits in Austin.
