From NME:

A spokesperson from Modest Mouse's label Epic Records has confirmed that the Washington band will release a new album in the first quarter of 2015.

The news was sparked by an Instagram photo posted by the band – their first since joining the social media site – showing a vinyl with the words 'Side A: 'Lampshades On Fire'.

It's already ridiculous that preorders are put up egregiously earlier than the release date, now threads are being started way earlier than the preorder is announced.

I hear Brand New is recording. Someone needs to start a thread for that ASAP. We dont want to miss out on the PO for the PO

I like to have these up early. So I can get all the new information as it becomes available. I am greedy like that.

Super disappointed by the "new" single. I mean, if a band's been playing something live for...3-4 years, is it really new
It also sounds like it could've been a B-side off We Were Dead... and the re-use of the da-da-das from "World at Large" just seems like a huge lack of creativity - especially after 7 years! 

I'm really hoping the album is better than this.

 

This artwork is great though.

Yeah that's true, the live version from 2011 doesn't sound much different from this. Still, Modest Mouse is one of those bands whose songs make more sense in the context of a full album. For the last decade or so it seems like they've been picking crowd-pleasers as their singles, so this is kind of a cool curveball. Maybe I'm just being optimistic.
