Modest Mouse was originally formed in 1993 in Issaquah, WA and over the last two decades has become the indie rock standard and one of the few bands capable of treading the narrow path where massive popularity is possible without sacrificing their longtime fans. Following the 2015 release of Strangers To Ourselves, the first new studio album from the band in eight years, the Modest Mouse / Glacial Pace reissue machine will keep rolling with vinyl pressings of the Interstate 8 EP and the singles collection Building Nothing Out of Something.
Interstate 8 was originally only pressed on CD in limited quantities in 1996, this will be the first time it appears on vinyl. As with the original CD, it will include the Live in Sunburst Montana demo. Building Nothing Out of Something was originally pressed on vinyl in 2000, but has been out of print for over a decade now. Both releases will mark the end of the band's highly sought after Up recordings.
The 5-track Interstate 8 EP served as Modest Mouse's second release on Up Records and comes augmented here with 6 additional songs from Live in Sunburst Montana, the band's very first set of demos recorded in Isaac Brock's garage. The versions of "Tundra/Desert" and "Edit The Sad Parts" are both also found on their debut album This Is A Long Drive For Someone With Nothing To Think About.
