The band have also finally shared the video for ‘The World At Large/Stiff Animal Fantasy’, which Modest Mouse’s Isaac Brock co-directed with Jason Foster. The clip was previously only available on a version of ‘Good News’ released on DualDisc which featured a CD on one side and a DVD on the other in the mid noughties. You can view it below.
