Interstate 8 is the second EP by indie rock band Modest Mouse, released on Up Records in 1996.[1] It contains the band's original demo, Live in Sunburst Montana, which was recorded in Isaac Brock's garage in Issaquah, Washington. This release is out-of-print, and is heavily sought after by collectors and fans.[2]

The studio recordings of "Tundra/Desert", "Novocain Stain", and "Beach Side Property" are available on the band's debut album This Is a Long Drive for Someone with Nothing to Think About.[4]
