Founded in 1993 by guitarist and vocalist Isaac Brock at the age of 18, Modest Mouse released a series of indie albums including “The Fruit That Ate Itself, This Is a Long Drive for Someone with Nothing to Think About and The Lonesome Crowded West“. Establishing themselves steadily as a non-stop touring band and with growing cult following, they eventually signed with Epic Records in 1999, releasing “The Moon & Antarctica” their major label debut album in 2000.
“Good News for People Who Love Bad News“, the band’s commercial breakthrough, spawned the hit singles “Float On” and “Ocean Breathes Salty“, going on to sell 2 million albums worldwide as the band began headlining arenas in the US and internationally. In 2006 the band recruited Johnny Marr, The Smiths’ legendary guitarist, to take his place for the recording of their next album. Marr not only appeared on 2007’s “We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank“, but he became a full member of Modest Mouse and toured with the group in support of the album, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard album charts.
