Modest Mouse is in full speed mode to promote chart-topping album "We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank" (2007). They just announced that their May schedule is partly packed with UK gigs.
The band will kick off May 20 at All Tomorrow's Parties festival in Sommerset and conclude May 29 in Manchester's Ritz Ballroom. One show in Nottingham Rock City will coincide with the UK release of single "Dashboard" on May 28.
Immediately after the short tour, the band will attend the Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona on June 1.
