Drummer Jeremiah Green Loses Battle to Brutal Disease at 45
Modest Mouse announced the sad news of Jeremiah Green’s death via social media on Saturday, December 31, 2022. Details of Jeremiah Green’s cause of death at 45 were shared on the Internet.
“I don’t know a way to ease into this: Today we lost our dear friend Jeremiah. He laid down to rest and simply faded out,” the band announced in a statement via Instagram.
“I like to say a bunch of pretty words right now, but it just isn’t the time. These will come later, and from many people. Please appreciate all the love you give, get, have given, and will get. Above all, Jeremiah was about love. We love you,” the statement read.
Jeremiah Martin Green was born on March 4, 1977, in Oahu, Hawaii, United States. He took drumming lessons for three months in his teen years but was uninspired by his teacher.
Green immersed himself in the Seattle music scene, joining a band and attending concerts at night. His early influences included local bands such as Hammerbox and Treepeople.
His favorite band was the English Gothic rock band The Cure. Jeremiah was particularly inspired by the drumming on their 1982 album Pornography. He also cited the D.C. post-hardcore band Fugazi as his greatest influence for starting a band.
Jeremiah began his touring and recording career while he was in high school. He played with the bands Red Stars Theory on Touch and Go Records, Satisfact on K Records, and Peeved on Distressed Records.
He also played with a band by the name of Vells, as well as another group named Psychic Emperor. Both groups played at venues around Seattle and the Pacific Northwest.
In 2003, on the day of his birthday, he quit Modest Mouse. Green later revealed that he suffered a nervous breakdown and was shortly admitted to a psychiatric hospital.
After quitting, the band had quickly convinced him to return, but on the second day of recording in Portland Green exploded in argument and then “disappeared” for two months.
Faced with Green’s absence, the band initially considered breaking up. Jeremiah was eventually replaced by Benjamin Weikel of The Helio Sequence.
He officially rejoined the band in May 2004. In 2007, Jeremiah appeared on Graig Markel’s Via Novella on the Sonic Boom Label. Green released a drum breaks 7″ collaboration with Plastiq Phantom in May 2008.
