Modest Mouse drummer Jeremiah Green has been diagnosed with stage four cancer.

The musician, 45, was described as “strong and brave” in a post by his mother Carol Namatame on Facebook, where she asked fans to “please send healing vibes to my son”.

Carol penned: 'Please send healing vibes for my son, Jeremiah Green, who is battling stage 4 cancer. He is so strong and so brave and hanging in there!'

The news was also shared by radio DJ Marco Collins on social media, who said that Jeremiah “pulled [out] of the band’s tour” to get treatment.

He wrote: “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.

“Despite having a stage 4 diagnosis, his prognosis is good! Also his oncologist is a big MM fan (so he's got that in his corner!)," he continued.

“Sending him nothing but love healing energy! Get well buddy. We're all pulling for you!”

It has not been publicly revealed what form of cancer the drummer has been diagnosed with.

The musician is one of the co-founding members of the group, having formed the band in 1993 alongside bassist Eric Judy and frontman Isaac Brock.

Modest Mouse recently completed a tour celebrating the 25th anniversary of their breakthrough second album, The Lonesome Crowded West, however Jeremiah did not join the group for every gig.

In July, Modest Mouse frontman Isaac Brock revealed that the band was working on new music.

Their last album, The Golden Casket, was released in 2021.

"I got seven new songs coming out pretty soon," he told NME. "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 f*** it! I don't want to have to answer that question anymore, so I have a record that I'm really happy with."
