Modest Mouse also recently celebrated the 25th anniversary of their breakthrough album 'The Lonesome Crowded West.'

Modest Mouse has also shared two videos that were previously only available on the DVD side of the DualDisc version of the album.

The first is a music video for "The World at Large/Stiff Animal Fantasy," directed by Jason Foster and frontman Isaac Brock, which has been scaled up to HD resolution.

The second, also scaled up to HD from its humble DVD origins, is a goofy fake interview directed by and starring Brock. It features the late Dave Frishberg, the band's actual lawyer at the time, who was a pianist and composer who wrote the classic Schoolhouse Rock song "I'm Just a Bill."
