Mogwai Announce New Album & Tour


The last time Mogwai toured the Chicago date got cancelled so that better not happen again. Their 2008 album "The Hawk is Howling" was pretty good but I have high hopes for their follow-up simply because of it's name: "Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will." It'd be hard to think of an awesomer name than that. These Scottish Post Rock veterans will be playing an insane amount of shows next year, 69 to be exact, so you have no excuse to miss this one. Unless they cancel it. Then you have an excuse. A good one too. 'Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will' is Mogwai's 7th album and it comes out February 14th on Rock Action Records and February 15 on Sub Pop Records here in the States. There will also be a Limited Edition version which includes a bonus CD featuring a 26 minute piece called ‘The Singing Mountain’ recorded for Douglas Gordon and Olaf Nicolai’s ‘Monument for Forgotten Future’ installation in Essen, Germany.
