LISTEN: Alt Heroes MOGWAI Return with ‘Party In The Dark’

Mogwai are today streaming new track ‘Party In The Dark’, taken from eagerly awaited forthcoming album Every Country’s Sun, out September 1st via Rock Action.

Every Country’s Sun see’s the Scottish band join forces once again with producer Dave Fridmann, for the first time since 2001’s Rock Action. The new record takes two decades of Mogwai’s signature, contrasting sounds – towering intensity, pastoral introspection, synth-rock minimalism, DNA-detonating volume – and distills it, beautifully, into 56 concise minutes of gracious elegance, hymnal trance-rock, and transcendental euphoria.

Mogwai recently announced a major world tour, kicking off in Oslo on 10 October, taking in dates in Europe,  north America and the UK, and wrapping up with a performance at London’s O2 Academy Brixton on 15 December.
