The Lonesome Crowded West, the second Modest Mouse album, helped establish the group as a beloved indie band. They later gained mainstream recognition with 2004’s Good News for People Who Love Bad News, which spawned the single “Float On.”

Modest Mouse is currently on tour supporting the band’s latest album, 2021’s The Golden Casket. The outing concludes September 11 in Atlanta.
