Modest Mouse is ending an eight-year hiatus with 'Strangers to Ourselves', the band's sixth album which drops on March 17. The album's cover features an aerial image of our personal hell: an RV resort located in Mesa, Arizona.

According to the band, the album's second single, "Coyotes", was inspired by the true story of a coyote that rode Portland's MAX light rail train in 2002. You can watch the music video below:

In a recent interview, Rolling Stone eloquently listed Brock's personal hurdles: "...belligerent gigs (he reportedly unleashed a knife on his torso onstage in 2007) and a 1999 date-rape allegation (which was later dropped) -- and, by his own account, he even spent about a week in jail on an attempted-murder charge in the early 2000s (according to Brock, the charge stemmed from a DUI accident in which a friend suffered a thumb injury)."

Here are more, benign obstacles frontman Isaac Brock faced while creating 'Strangers to Ourselves'. Quotation above via rollingstone.com.
