Indie rock band Modest Mouse have released "Lampshades On Fire," which will be available to purchase tomorrow. The song is from their upcoming sixth studio album titled Strangers to Ourselves, set to be released March 3rd, 2015 on Epic Records. The song premiered on and is now available on Modest Mouse's official VEVO YouTube account (along with a cool video of the record playing on a turntable), which you can watch above.

Starting with a reggae type of groove, "Lampshades On Fire" is a bittersweet party song. Various sound effects and subtle percussion supplements the breakbeat style drums. Isaac Brock's urgent vocals flow effortlessly as he sings about an endless cycle of partying, making mistakes, and moving on. A backing chorus combined with a guitar crescendo ends the song abruptly, but not before the band is able to make a strong statement.

Strangers to Ourselves will be the band's first new album since 2007's We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank.
