No longer indie's secret handshake band Modest Mouse went proper big with this record, the purest may not be sure but there's some absolute Grade A bangers here.

On April 5th, Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, will release a digital expanded edition of Modest Mouse’s 2004 breakthrough album, Good News For People Who Love Bad News in celebration of its 20th anniversary. The digital release, Good News For People Who Love Bad News: 20th Anniversary Expanded Edition, features eight bonus tracks, including brand new remixes from Poolside, Jacknife Lee, Dan the Automator, MGMT’s Andrew VanWyngarden and more. See the complete track listing below.

Also available to pre-order is the 2-LP vinyl version of the project, Good News For People Who Love Bad News (Deluxe Edition), out May 17th. Remastered for vinyl in opaque baby pink and opaque spring green, the package includes an alternate album cover, 8-page booklet and five of the new remixes.


Released by Epic Records on April 6, 2004, Good News For People Who Love Bad News offered a unique blend of existential lyricism and innovative soundscapes which helped Modest Mouse break out of the rock underground after more than a decade of existence. The album, which has been certified double platinum for U.S. shipments of 2 million copies, is hailed as an alternative classic on the strength of songs such as the Modern Rock chart-topping, 5-times platinum single “Float On,” the gold-certified “The World At Large” and “Ocean Breathes Salty.”

Good News For People Who Love Bad News was written by Isaac Brock, Dann Gallucci, Eric Judy and Benjamin Weikel, with additional contributions from Tom Peloso, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band and The Flaming Lips. Its success propelled Modest Mouse to new levels of visibility without compromising its hard-won artistic freedom, which was no small feat at a time when many once-independent acts were creatively waylaid after signing to major labels.

The band has also shared the video for “The World At Large/Stiff Animal Fantasy,” directed by Jason Foster and Isaac Brock. It was previously only available on the DVD side of the Good News For People Who Love Bad News DualDisc and has been up-rezzed to HD. Watch HERE

Also, up-rezzed to HD and available to watch today from the aforementioned DualDisc DVD is a 5-minute interview piece titled “Schoolhouse Brock – Modest Mouse On Trial” directed by and featuring Isaac Brock. A must-see, the interview perfectly encapsulates Brock’s penchant for straight-faced dry humor, and features the band’s actual lawyer at the time Dave Frishberg, who was a pianist, vocalist and composer, and well-known for writing and singing the classic Schoolhouse Rock song “I’m Just a Bill.” Watch
