Modest Mouse & Heath Ledger.

Modest Mouse are getting ready to release a music video directed by the late Heath Ledger. The video for ‘King Rat’, a bonus track from their 2007 album ‘We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank’, was directed by Ledger after the actor randomly met front man Isaac Brock in Australia.


Speaking to VH1 in 2007, Brock explained the original meeting between the two. “Heath and I have a mutual friend and when we were in Australia, my fiancé and some of us in the band went out on a boat with him and his family and friends and talked about the idea. The idea sort of dropped, but then he just sent me an email saying that he wanted to do it.”

The actor also directed music videos for the late Nick Drake, which was shown at a tribute to the musician, and N’fa. See below. 


The video, which features animation from Terry Gilliam, doesn’t have a scheduled release date yet, but fans have been told to expect to see it in the near future.
