MODEST MOUSE ANNOUNCE THE LONESOME CROWDED WEST TOUR
CELEBRATING 25 YEARS OF THE GROUNDBREAKING ALBUM
Modest Mouse has announced The Lonesome Crowded West Tour, an intimate set of dates
celebrating the 25th anniversary of the release of what has been hailed as one of the greatest
indie records of all time. First released on November 18, 1997 on Up Records and produced by
Calvin Johnson in Seattle, Modest Mouse plans to tour as they originally had behind the
release, going out as a four-piece with original members Isaac Brock and Jeremiah Green
joined by Russell Higbee and Simon O’Connor.
To commemorate the anniversary, Modest Mouse will be releasing a limited vinyl picture disc via
Glacial Pace Recordings. A limited amount will be available for sale at each show.
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 iconic 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 you can hear them in order
from start to finish. Pitchfork ranked The Lonesome Crowded West at number 29 in their list of
the 100 greatest albums of the 1990s, and the song “Trailer Trash” reached number 63 in their
list of the 200 greatest songs of the decade. Spin ranked the album at number 59 in their list of
the 100 greatest albums of 1985–2005, and Entertainment Weekly included the album in their
list The Indie Rock 25.
