Watch Modest Mouse’s Video for ‘Lampshades on Fire’
This week, Modest Mouse released their new album, Strangers to Ourselves, and they have now shared the official video for the single, "Lampshades On Fire," featuring actress Natasha Lyonne from the Netflix series, Orange Is The New Black.
Directed by Jorge Torres-Torres, the video (watch it below) plays out like the trailer to some truly offbeat film. The band do get the odd moment of screen time amidst the unhinged psycho party going on.
Strangers to Ourselves is the band's first new album since 2007's We Were Dead Before Our Ship Even Sank. That long gap, however, won't be the agenda this time around. "I’m pretty far along with the next one as it is. I went into making this one with two records in mind," frontman Isaac Brook told HMV in a recent interview. He said the follow up should come sooner rather than later. "It’ll be released as quickly as it’s legally allowed to be. It’s a partner to this one."
The band are also keeping themselves busy on the road this spring and summer, criss-crossing back and forth between Europe and America. See U.S. tour dates below.
