MODEST MOUSE CELEBRATE THE 10th ANNIVERSARY OF THE MOON & ANTARCTICA
WITH LONG AWAITED VINYL REISSUE OF LANDMARK ALBUM ON APRIL 17

Modest Mouse
Epic/Legacy Recordings will celebrate the 10th anniversary of The Moon & Antarctica, the highly acclaimed major label debut from American indie rock band Modest Mouse, with the long awaited vinyl reissue of the landmark album on April 17.

Out-of-print on vinyl for the past five years, 12" copies of The Moon & Antarctica have become prized collector's items.

Available in time for Record Store Day 2010, The Moon & Antarctica, newly-struck on 12" heavy double vinyl, has been remastered using the band-approved 2004 CD master. The album features restored original artwork and replicates the infinite lock groove found in the original vinyl pressings of 2000. The new vinyl reissue includes a download card for The Moon & Antarctica.

Recorded from July through November 1999, The Moon & Antarctica, the third Modest Mouse album, was first released on both vinyl and CD in June 2000. A milestone for the band and a sublime presence on the American pop music landscape, The Moon & Antarctica turned up on many year-end best-of lists.

The highly influential Pitchfork Media ranked the album #3 for 2000, #7 for 2000-2004, and #6 for the decade (2000-2010). Better Propaganda named The Moon & Antarctica #23 for the decade, Rhapsody ranked it #4 on their Alt/Indie's Best Albums of the Decade" list and Entertainment Weekly, who ranked it #37 (out of 100) in "The New Classics" list (from 1983-2008) calling the "...major-label debut from the Northwest indie heroes...an angular, experimental treasure...."

A success in both the mainstream and the underground, The Moon & Antarctica was certified gold by the RIAA as of March 9, 2009.
