Modest Mouse cancel UK tour to focus on recording, because though they have iPads, you can't do both of those things at once

Hey, what do you know? Ol’ Isaac Whosits and his rock band Modest Mouse are still out there doing stuff. Or at least, they were about to be.

Per a little announcement on their website, they’ve kinda sorta decided to maybe hold off on playing a bunch of shows in the UK that start next week in favor of continuing work on their new album, which I reckon would follow-up 2009’s No One’s First and You’re Next, but you know, who even remembers?

Well, that’s about it. What? You want quotes or something? Fine:

After much thought, we have decided to cancel our EU/UK tour to continue work on our forthcoming album. We do appreciate our fans and promise that we will make it up to you next year.

Refunds will be available at the point of purchase.

We look forward to sharing our new music with the world next year.


How’s that? Nice and official? Yeah, you’re right; it is. Oh, by the way, England, they’re still playing their Monterey, CA date at the end of August. USA! USA! USA!

Okay, NOW that’s about it. Don’t worry, I’ll still post all the tour dates below for no reason.
