As you may or may not know Mogwai have been spending the summer recording their new album, we’ve not said much about it so far so this is kind of what this post’s about. So, here goes:
We’re delighted to announce that the new album called, ‘Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will’ will be released on 14th February 2011 on Rock Action Records.
‘Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will’, band’s seventh album, was recorded over the summer at Chem 19 Studios, in Hamilton and mixed at The Castle Of Doom. ‘Hardcore’ is produced by Mogwai confidante Paul Savage (the man behind Mogwai’s exceptional 1997 ‘Mogwai Young Team’ album) and is the follow up to 2008’s magnum opus ‘The Hawk Is Howling’.
The album will be released on February 15 2011 in the US where Mogwai have recently signed to the illustrious Sub Pop label for North America.
