Published May 11, 2009In your mad rush to scoop up Record Store Day exclusives, you may have noticed that Modest Mouse's contribution to the day's festivities was nowhere to be found. Well, that's because the band's new limited-edition seven-inch never made it out in time for the April 18 celebrations. However, if you were disappointed, don't be: Modest Mouse's latest joint is now getting an official release on May 26.
The band's new vinyl artifact will include two new tracks, "Satellite Skin" and "Guilty Cocker Spaniels," and pressed up on fancy orange vinyl with an embossed sleeve. The release is limited to 4,000 copies, but if you can't hunt one down, it will also be up for sale on iTunes.
"Satellite Skin" is also set to get a music video, which will premiere on the group's MySpace on May 15. It's directed by Kevin Willis (who did Tool's "Stinkfist"). However, there's still no word if Modest Mouse's Heath Ledger-directed video for "King Rat" will see the light of day. Also, there's still no sign of the group's long-rumoured No One's First and You're Next EP, which continues to have no official release date.
