Modest Mouse Hint at New Recordings via Mysterious 7-inch Photo
The wait for Modest Mouse's next LP has been interminable, as they've spent years hinting at the follow-up to 2007's We Were Dead Before This Ship Even Sank. Now, it seems that something may finally be on the way, since they posted an image of a 7-inch on their newly launched Instagram account.

This hand-labelled record bears the song title "Lampshades on Fire." This is presumably the same tune as the one that the group have been playing live for several years now. Watch a live performance below.

The post was tagged #lampshadesonfire. There's no concrete information about the band's plans, but assuming that this means new material is on the way, it will be the group's first recorded output since 2009's outtakes EP No One's First and You're Next. However, they shared some archival tracks with their recent vinyl reissues.

There have been various reports about Modest Mouse's planned album over the years. Krist Novoselic and Big Boi have both been attached to the project.
