The band celebrated the album’s 20th birthday with a reissue and expanded edition featuring eight additional remixes from the likes of MGMT’s Andrew VanWyngarden (‘The View’), Jacknife Lee (‘Bury Me With It’), Dan the Automator (‘Float On’), and Justin Raisen (‘The Good Times Are Killing Me’).

Now, Modest Mouse frontman Isaac Brock has told Rolling Stone in a new interview that he was hoping to tour the album with the original members of the band who played on the album.

“It’s the only record where I can do a tour with all the living members, all the exact same members,” he said. This is the case because it is the band’s only record to not feature late drummer Jeremiah Green due to his temporary departure from the band. Green died on December 31, 2022, just one month after being diagnosed with cancer, at the age of 45.

‘Good News For People Who Love Bad News’ is Modest Mouse’s fourth album and helped propel them to mainstream popularity. it also spawned the singles ‘Float On’, ‘Ocean Breathes Softly’ and ‘The World At Large’.
