Mogwai Pre-order is ready for you!

8412

Dear Mogwai fans,

We at Sub Pop World HQ are going ape for the February15th release of the lengthy but fittingly titled record, Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will (forthwith, for the sake of brevity and crypticness, to be referred to as HCWNDBYW) from Scottish ear-bleeders, Mogwai. HCWNDBYW…will be available on a deluxe 2xCD (the bonus disc features “Music For A Forgotten Future (The Singing Mountain)” a 23 minute epic originally composed to accompany an art installation created by Olaf Nicolai and Douglas Gordon), or gatefold 2xLP (the LP comes with a digital download code which will include the bonus material). If you’re among the first 500 ALL customers to pre-order HCWNDBYW by February 15th, we will send you thoughtfully conceived and beautifully executed limited edition Mogwai earplugs with case so the insane decibels will just make your ears throb instead of bleed. So you don’t have to wait until your order arrives to experience the soaring sounds of Mogwai, as soon as you complete your purchase we will grant you access to a stream of the new record in its entirety.

Do you know about the just-this-week-released Rano Pano 7" single? We hope so. The a-side of this single, “Rano Pano,” is on Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will and the b-side, “Hasenheide” is not. Also worth noting, the cover art here is in the style of classic Sub Pop Singles Club singles. Find it here: http://www.subpop.com/releases/mogwai/singles/rano_pano

Also brand new this week, Mogwai’s “Rano Pano” Video!

Inspired by 80s VHS tapes, this ‘homage to boyhood fantasies’ video easily ranks amongst our all-time favorite Sub Pop videos. It premiered on The Guardian this week, in case you missed it, here’s your link:

New Mogwai Music Friday!

As we shared with you a few weeks ago, we are ecstatic to be working with Scottish band Mogwai. We could go on and on about how awesome their new record Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will is, but if life has taught us anything it is to let people make their own decisions. And guess what, now you can. Hidden within the confines of this fancy shamancy widget you will find the first sampling of tunes entitled “Rano Pano.” Like what you hear? You can pre-order the bands new 7" by the same name, which comes out on January 18th. For more information on this release, click here

And be sure not to miss the band when they hit the road this spring. Full list of tour dates can be found here

Mogwai sign to Sub Pop for North America!

7858

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.

This from the Mogwai site

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.

Mogwai

Mogwai “Simon Ferocious” Music Video + US Tour Dates

Mogwai are back with another music video for the Rave Tapes album track, “Simon Ferocious”. It stars a couple of skydivers and the utterly massive sound of the music of Mogwai. A feast for your eyes and ears is just a click away. Speaking of Mogwai (which this blog post is dedicated to doing), the band is on a rare jaunt across the pond to the good ol’ U. S. of A. Catch them if you can, it’s an unforgettable experience.

Pick up Rave Tapes from Sub Pop Records.
