After the recent news of his cancer diagnosis, Jeremiah Green – the drummer and founding member of Modest Mouse – passed away this Saturday at 45 years old, according to his family and band’s statements.
The band released a short and sweet sentiment on Instagram early today. “I don’t know how to ease into this: Today, we lost our dear friend Jeremiah. He laid down to rest and faded out. I want to say some pretty words, but it isn’t the time. These will come later and from many people.”
His band Modest Mouse formed in the 1990s and released their debut album in 1996, with their latest being “The Golden Casket,” released in 2021. Their most notable work, however, is Float On, off the 2004 album “Good News For People Who Love Bad News.”
Green was a highly talented musician who had even been praised by Pitchfork’s Spencer Owen, stating that “Jeremiah Green proves himself to be one of indie rock's best drummers, even this early in the game." – of his work on “Sad Sappy Sucker.”
Green’s music lives on through Modest Mouse’s legacy left on the music industry. He is survived by his wife, Laura Green, and their son Wilder.
