Mogwai head back on the road

Mogwai, who recently announced the release of their eighth studio album, Rave Tapes, on Jan. 21 via Sub Pop, have confirmed an extensive Spring tour of North America (dates listed below).

The Scottish quintet gave fans an early listen to music from Rave Tapes last week, streaming the single “Remurdered.”  Pitchfork described the single as “night shivers coupled with blocky electronics,” adding that the track “heads down a mazy path while the volume gradually increases, ultimately peaking in a mesh of criss-crossing synthetic textures.”

Rave Tapes was recorded over the summer in the band’s Castle of Doom studio in Glasgow and reunites the band with Hardcore Will Never Die But You Will Co-Producer Paul Savage.

Mogwai previously announced two live dates for late 2013: a Nov. 28 performance at Junction in Cambridge, UK and a slot on All Tomorrow’s Parties “End of an Era” on Dec. 1 at Pontins Holiday Park in the UK. The band returns to the road in late January for a short European trek (dates listed below).

In related news, Mogwai recently scored the French supernatural thriller, Les Revanants, the most popular TV series in Canal + history. The show has since aired in the UK to rave reviews and made its stateside debut as The Returned on The Sundance Channel on Oct. 31.
