Watch Modest Mouse Play ‘Lampshades on Fire’ on ‘The Tonight Show’
After releasing their new album, Stranger to Ourselves, this week, Modest Mouse celebrated the occasion by playing their single, "Lampshades on Fire," on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Check out the video above.
If you wondered how the Roots manage to all stay onstage at once, wait till you see this rock outfit. Strategically placed on the Tonight Show stage, the band kick off the track with the "bop, bop, bop" hook before frontman Isaac Brock starts the verse. While they didn't hold back on the rock energy, the Issaquah, Wash. band brought a whimsical feel to the song -- mostly due to that hook.
It's been eight years since their last record, We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank. And although they have been dropping song teasers on us since they dropped this track in January, we're more that excited to see them back on the stage again.
The live performances don't stop there. Modest Mouse will play two shows at Webster Hall in New York City tonight (March 18) and tomorrow (March 19). They've got more dates scheduled April to July, including stops at a few festivals including Sasquatch and Firefly before they head to Europe. You can find all Modest Mouse's tour dates here.
