The Golden Casket was produced by Dave Sardy and Jacknife Lee in Los Angeles and in Modest Mouse’s studio in Portland. 

According to the band, the album “hovers in the liminal space between raw punk power and experimental studio science, with Brock exploring themes ranging from the degradation of our psychic landscapes and invisible technology, to fatherhood.”
