Modest Mouse's extensive 18 year career has been on a constant upward trajectory since their formation in 1993. After developing a cult-like following with their earlier work, their 2004 offering Good News For People Who Love Bad News and its massive hit 'Float On' propelled the band further into full fledged stardom and primed the world stage for their most recent and immensely successful fifth album, 2007's We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank.

The album hit No.1 on Billboard album charts and critics were quick to bestow praise on the American group including a number of influential trendsetting websites. Pitchfork said that 'Modest Mouse should be championed for exposing a larger audience to a sound in line with classic indie rock, rather than aiming for more traditional rock sounds like many of their more accessible indie contemporaries.'

Modest Mouse will grace our shores for two headline shows on August 1st (already sold out) & 2nd. This is sure to be an essential addition to any music lover's must-see list for 2011.
