Modest Mouse are readying their new album, The Golden Casket, which is out on June 25th via Epic. They’ve shared a video for the record’s first single, “We Are Between.”
The Kyle Thrash-directed video comes packed with gloomy shots of “lead singer Isaac Brock stranded amongst a field of cars, with various characters, some real and some not, flashing in and out of view,” a press release explains. Some of these abandoned cars are set on fire, as smoke weaves through the field.
Brock sits in the back of a limo, singing along to the gritty tune, delivering lines like, We are between, we are between, yeah we are/ Somewhere between dust and the stars/ Swung open then slam shut/ Yeah but here we are.”
Watch the video for “We Are Between” below.
“The album hovers in the liminal space between raw punk power and experimental studio science,” a press release explains of the forthcoming album, “frontman Isaac Brock explores themes ranging from the degradation of our psychic landscapes and invisible technology, to fatherhood. The twelve tracks behave like amorphous organisms, undergoing dramatic mutations and mood swings that speak to the chronic tug-of-war between hope and despair that plays out in Brock’s head.”
