Modest Mouse have moved the previously reported release date of We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank from December 19 to a more vague "early 2007," according to a press release.
However, the band does have some tour dates scheduled, starting in November with their storming of L. A. and New York. So maybe it's best to think of We Were Dead like a movie: it premieres on the coasts, but the rest of us get to spend too much money on it eventually.
Go see them live!!!!
