Modest Mouse think they can follow up their upcoming album with a new one relatively quickly.
"Iím pretty far along with the next one as it is. I went in to making this one with two records in mind."

Emily Zemler, writing for Relix, talks with Modest Mouse about their new album.
Ultimately, the reason Modest Mouse didnít spit out a new record three years ago is because the songs just werenít fully developed yet. The musicians didnít enter into the new music with any sort of intention or vision in mind, instead allowing the music to create itself along the way. In the early stages, Brock found himself interested in a certain type of song that he eventually dismissed.
