After reports surfaced that Portland indie-rock outfit Modest Mouse were working on a brand new LP with Outkast's Big Boi taking on production duties, we couldn't help but get excited. With no new information regarding the album since the news broke, at least we can find comfort with the fact that MM will be touring this summer, albeit for a very short period of time. From June 20th to the 26th, the Portland band will be performing a pair of shows in Washington, DC, as well as one-night stints in Pittsburgh and Columbus, Ohio. They will also be performing at this year's Governors Ball Music Festival in New York and Orion Music + More in Atlantic City, NJ. Take a look at all the details after the jump.
