Rock band Modest Mouse’s founding member Jeremiah Green has been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. The drummer’s mother, Carol Namatame, in a recent Facebook post disclosed her son’s diagnosis. However, it is not clear from the post regarding what kind of cancer the artist is suffering from.
“He is doing great considering the circumstances,” Adam shared. “He played a lot of shows with the cancer but the doctor gave him the green light to play all the way up to the last West Coast date. His goal is to be back on tour this spring in South America. He has about 4 weeks of Chemo and Radiation left.”
“Just found out my friend Jeremiah Green (Modest Mouse) has pulled off the band’s tour because he is currently undergoing chemo treatments to battle Stage 4 Cancer,” Collins wrote, alongside a black and white photo of Green playing the drums.
Collins noted that Green’s “prognosis is good” and concluded his message with, “Sending him nothing but love & healing energy! Get well buddy. We’re all pulling for you!”
Modest Mouse concluded their tour celebrating the 25th anniversary of their album, “The Lonesome Crowded West,” just before Christmas on Dec. 20 in Washington, D.C.

Speaking to NME at Spain’s Mad Cool Festival, frontman Isaac Brock said: “I got seven new songs coming out pretty soon. As soon as we were done with the last album, I had a thorn in my side about everyone saying, ‘Why does it take so long to put out records?’
“Because I find other interests! Not all of them good, but fuck it! I don’t want to have to answer that question anymore, so I have a record that I’m really happy with.”
