Drummer Jeremiah Green has rejoined indie superstars Modest Mouse and will tour with the band in Europe and the U.S. this summer.
The drummer had played with the band since its inception before abruptly leaving last spring in the midst of troubled recording sessions. Benjamin Weikel of Helio Sequence filled in for Green during his absence, performing live and on the band’s newest album, Good News For People Who Love Bad News.
Modest Mouse will appear at the KROQ Weenie Roast June 12 before heading to Europe for several weeks of shows. They’ll spend much of July and August on the Lollapalooza main stage, squeezing in a July 30 Milwaukee show on one of their off-days. Two September shows are on the books, both in Texas, during the Austin City Limits Music Festival.
In addition to its new studio album, the band recently “unofficially” issued Baron Von Bullshit Rides Again, a live bootleg recording available only through modestmouse.com.
