About a week ago it was revealed that Modest Mouse planned on releasing their first new song in 4 years - “Poison the Well” - on Record Store Day (April 13th) on a triangular mint-green 7-inch back with another unreleased track on the B-side.
At the time - all we had was an audio recording of the song from a live show. Yesterday though - the band officially released the song in digital formats.
Modest Mouse fans will be happy to hear the song's full of the group’s trademark jerky indie sound ... and Isaac Brock's quirky angsty lyrics... like: “Medicine makers they are trying to kill us/ They know how to cure us, but they bet that’s bad for business now.”
Take a listen below ... Modest Mouse will hit the road this fall with The Black Keys and play The Anthem in DC on October 12
