Scottish post-rock icons to perform at Northumberland University and Manchester Albert Hall in February
The Scottish post rock icons will play Newcastle's Northumbria University on Thu 1 Feb before travelling to Manchester's Albert Hall the following evening.
The group are currently touring in support of Every Country's Sun, their ninth studio album. Across the dates they're being joined by shoegaze veterans Ride and Sacred Paws, who are signed to the band's Rock Action record label and who claimed the Scottish Album of the Year award for their debut Strike A Match.
Every Country's Sun reached number 6 in the UK album charts the week it was released, making it Mogwai's highest charting album release to date, over 20 years after they first formed. It saw them reunite with renowned producer Dave Fridmann, who they also teamed up with for 2001 album Rock Action, and was critically acclaimed to go with its commercial success.
Tickets for Mogwai's shows in Newcastle and Manchester go on sale at 10am on Fri 27 Oct.
