Modest Mouse is coming to Cincinnati Sept. 28 on the Midwestern leg of one of their busier tours in recent memory (and one of the only ones to stop in Cincinnati since 2008). The band kicks things off Sept. 17 in Wisconsin, wrapping around Illinois, Ohio and Indiana before heading to the East Coast.
Formed in Washington state in 1993, the Indie Rock favorites have made a name for themselves with a unique sound that can simultaneous reach heavy radio play (e.g. "Float On"), while appeasing longtime cult fans. "Float On" was featured on the band's 2004 pop culture breakthrough album, Good News For People Who Love Bad News, which sold over 1.5 million copies and garnered Modest Mouse two Grammy nominations.
In 2007, the band's We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank, entered the Billboard Top 200 chart at No. 1. And the latest, Strangers to Ourselves, was released in March 2015 and debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200.
