Modest Mouse drummer Jeremiah Green has been diagnosed with stage four cancer.
On Christmas Day, Green’s mother Carol Namatame took to Facebook to share the sad news of her son’s diagnosis and asked fans to send “healing vibes” during this time.
“He [sic] so strong and so brave and hanging in!” she added to her post, which included a collage of photos of the 45-year-old drummer.
On Tuesday, Jeremiah’s brother, Adam Green, shared an update on his condition with Fox News Digital.

“He’s doing great under the circumstances,” Adam said. “He played a lot of shows with the cancer, but the doctor gave him the green light to play right up to the last date on the west coast. His goal is to be back on tour this spring in South America. He has about 4 weeks of chemo and radiation left. “
Seattle DJ Marco Collins also took to social media Sunday to announce Green’s diagnosis.
“I just found out that my friend Jeremiah Green (Modest Mouse) has pulled out of the band’s tour because he is currently undergoing chemotherapy to fight Stage 4 Cancer,” Collins wrote alongside a black and white photo of Green playing on drums.
Noting that Green’s “outlook is good,” Collins concluded her message with, “Sending him nothing but love and healing energy! Take it easy my friend. We’re all pulling for you!”
Modest Mouse wrapped up their tour celebrating the 25th anniversary of their album, “The Lonesome Crowded West,” just before Christmas on December 20th in Washington, DC.

The band is scheduled to return to the big stage in March to perform at all three South American Lollapalooza festivals in Chile, Argentina and Brazil.
Green has been Modest Mouse’s drummer since forming the band in 1992. In 2003, he took a year-long hiatus due to a nervous breakdown, People magazine reported.
Speaking to NME in July, Modest Mouse frontman Isaac Brock revealed that the band were working on new music. Modest Mouse’s latest album ‘The Golden Casket’ was released in 2021.

“I got seven new songs coming out pretty soon,” Brock said. “As soon as we finished the last album, I was a thorn in the side of everyone saying, ‘Why does it take so long to release albums?’ Because I find other hobbies! Not all good, but f— that! I don’t want to have to answer that question anymore, so I have a record that I’m very happy with.”
