Strangers to Ourselves is the sixth album by American alternative rock band Modest Mouse, which was released on March 17, 2015, two weeks after its initially announced release date of March 3, 2015. The album was leaked to the internet on March 7, 2015. On March 16th, 2015, the day before the album’s official release date, Strangers to Ourselves was prematurely made available for download on Amazon.com (free for Prime) and the iTunes store.
It will be the band’s first studio album since We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank, released in 2007, marking the longest gap between studio albums in their career. Modest Mouse actually recorded two albums worth of material in their sessions, though the second album still has several songs incomplete.
The album’s cover features an aerial image of Venture Out RV Resort, located in Mesa, Arizona.
