After teasing fans with an Instagram photo of a 7-inch vinyl record with the words, ‘Lampshades On Fire,’ scrawled on the center white label, a representative from Epic Records has confirmed that 2015 will bring with it a brand-new album from Modest Mouse.

As Revolt reports, once the photo of ‘Lampshades’ was shared with fans, the record rep verified the rumors, claiming the new Modest Mouse disc will hit the streets in the first quarter of the new year.

And on top of that, a couple of social media updates have us getting even more excited: It looks like ‘Lampshades On Fire’ — a new song that Modest Mouse have been playing live for the past few years — will get an official release on Monday Dec. 16:
