Let’s all have actually another Orange Julius. Modest Mouse is dusting down its classic 1997 record album, The Lonesome Crowded West, for a tour this autumn, celebrating the record’s 25th anniversary. And yes, this is certainly news that is big your flannel-wearing, indie-loving friends. Modest Mouse doesn’t tend to play many songs off of LCW these days, even if it’s one of the best albums of the ’90s and a portrait of how weird and ambitious the band was before its breakout years later with songs like “Float On.” (To be fair, it’s still pretty weird and ambitious; the band’s last album, The Golden Caskethas songs about technological-surveillance conspiracy theories and was made with weird synthesizer experiments.)

To honor its original 1997 album, Modest Mouse will cut down its ever-growing lineup that is live a four-piece for the trip, with LCW singer-guitarist Isaac Brock and drummer Jeremiah Green touring alongside bassist Russell Higbee and guitar player Simon O’Connor. There isn’t any term on if they’re really playing the record album in complete, once the band nearly did for a hometown show in December — save for “Lounge (Closing Time),” which Brock told the audience they mightn’t completely rehearse because “it’s a fucking difficult song.” The tour that is 20-datedates below) starts the day of the album’s anniversary, on November 18, in Missoula, Montana, and ends on December 17 in New York. Sadly, that’s still more than two months away, but tickets go on sale on 9 september. The years get fast, however the full days go so slow.
