Published May 22, 2015Back in March, Modest Mouse finally released a new album with Strangers to Ourselves. But as they move forward with another new LP reportedly in the works, they're also taking a look back by reissuing their 2001 EP Everywhere and His Nasty Parlour Tricks on vinyl.
The eight-song EP is nearly 33 minutes long, making it as substantial as many full-length albums. It compiles music from the prior Japanese EP Night on the Sun and other unreleased material.
Until now, Everywhere and His Nasty Parlour Tricks hadn't been pressed since its initial release in 2001. That was the year after the landmark album The Moon & Antartica; the EP includes an alternate, extended version of the LP cut "I Came as a Rat" entitled "I Came as a Rat (Long Walk Off a Short Dock)."
The entire EP can be streamed below on Spotify, and vinyl copies can be ordered from Modest Mouse's online store.
