Mogwai sign to Sub Pop for North America!


This just in!

Sub Pop Records (that’d be us) will be releasing the next Mogwai album in North America. The new record will be out in the early-ish part of 2011. And, as longtime fans of the band, we are incredibly thrilled and honored to be working with them. We’ll post more news about this as we have it.

Here’s some brief background info on Mogwai:

Friends Stuart Braithwaite, Dominic Aitchison, and Martin Bulloch formed Mogwai in Glasgow, Scotland in 1995. Over the next 15 years the instrumental rock band added John Cummings and Barry Burns to become a five-piece, toured the world 100 times over, released six full-length studio albums, and most recently, a live LP entitled Special Moves to coincide with the film Burning, which documented their three-night residency at Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg.

We are happy and proud to announce that Sub Pop Records are releasing our next studio album in North America. The album is currently being mixed in Glasgow at Castle Of Doom studios by Paul Savage for an early 2011 release. Rock Action Records will be releasing the record in Europe with Hostess releasing in Japan.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank and pay tribute to our previous American home Matador records. They remain great friends of the band and we want to thank them for everything they have done for us over the last 11 years and wish them all the best for the future.
