New record will be "Strangers to Ourselves" out on March 3, 2015. A select few twitter followers of MM received test pressings of Lampshades with info on the record.

I guess that's somewhat of a conflicting title like their history has shown. I really dont want that house picture to be the album cover, it really doesn't fit their solid color history, but who really cares as long as they FINALLY RELEASE SOMETHING!!!

So I have to say, I'm super jealous of the people who were contacted to get the test pressings. I really want one. :(

I heard that photo will be used as the single cover for Lampshades on Fire. Makes sense listening to the song too.

Alrighty then, so im officially freakin the fuck out! Its been so long..... And we'll finally have it.... March 3rd can't some soon enough. Sorry to be so excited, but no one in my house or around me could give a shit. So I had to rejoice with those who understand. And given what we've heard so far, im very optimistic. NO, its not going to be The Moon & Antarctica. Its going to be Strangers to Ourselves, and I couldn't be happier. I love how these guys have let their music grow in such artistically diverse directions. And I just can't wait to hear what they have in store for us! Also will be nice to see our message board come alive again. See this post already has 30000+ views. Didn't think I'd see that:) Anyways, here's to hoping I get bopped on the head and wake up March 2nd!............j/k.

Yeah, it's pretty annoying to already see the hipsters complaining about how this doesn't sound like LCW. There are couple points that could be made but first of all this is the damn single. 3rd Planet, Dashboard, Float On, etc are not exactly good indicators of the overall sound of the record. Secondly, they will NEVER make an album that sounds like LCW again. Hell, I'd argue their last radical shift in sound was the jump between LCW and M/A. Then, you can see a clear, slow progression from M/A to WWD. The only thing that really makes M/A sound much different from Good News and WWD is the experimental element on a couple songs.

In short, I just can't read/listen to people discuss MM who aren't posting on this fan site.

Got the vinyl today and the note. Pretty nice mail day when the package says it's from Modest Mouse. There is a printed inscription on the inner ring of the record that says "Welcome to 1979" :)

Heard the single on the radio and am digging it. Loved it live, but it's nice to hear a version where the lyrics are more clear, because they're really great. Classic snarky Isaac. Yay!

I went ahead and preordered the vinyl! Wish I could afford that cool vintage poster package, but $500 is way out of my price range.
