, Staff

Due to overwhelming demand, indie rockers Modest Mouse have announced a second date at Boston’s House of Blues. The band will now play the Lansdowne Street venye on Monday, July 26, in addition to the original show scheduled for Sunday, July 25. Tickets, which are priced at $37 and $45, go on sale Thursday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation.

The band has also announced the release of the Autumn Beds 7″ on June 23, which features never before released track “Autumn Beds” along with another new track “Whale Song”. Modest Mouse has not released a full-length album since 2007’s We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank, although they did release an EP last summer containing unreleased tracks and B-sides from the album (as well as from 2004’s Good News For People Who Like Bad News) entitled No One’s First and You’re Next. Although no plans for a new full length album have been announced, the band’s classic album The Moon & Antarctica was recently re-released on vinyl for the first time in five years as a part of Record Store Day.

This is the band’s first time back on the road since finishing up two years of touring in support of We Were Dead. Joining the band on these shows is new touring guitarist, Jim Fairchild, who replaced legendary guitarist Johnny Marr (of The Smiths) who recently left the band to pursue other musical ventures with The Cribs.
