Mogwai’s Earth Division EP Out September 13th on Sub Pop Records/ September 12th on Rock Action

Having thus far enjoyed a monumental year, with a sold out world tour and the release of the superb and critically acclaimed 7th studio album, Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will, Mogwai are ready to embark upon another chapter. The band are set to release their Earth Division EP, which carries 4- brand new tracks, highlighting a creative departure from the band’s trademark cinematic mantra of pulverizing, scorched guitar riffage, into a more recontextualised domain of hazy electronic distortion, accompanied by spiky wafts of violins, violas, cellos and double bass and jagged keys.

Earth Division discretely demonstrates another side of Mogwai’s stratospheric level of brilliance with its ever-rotating, hypnotic soundtracks that drift dreamy into force, while adsorbing into the paranormal. The EP is a collaboration of barded guitar distortion and haunting piano, which might offer the listener something different, but it still carries the band’s hallmarks.

Earth Division EP tracklisting:

1. Get To France.
2. Hound Of Winter.
3. Drunk And Crazy.
4. Does This Always Happen?


Tour-wise, Mogwai are headlining at this month’s iTunes Festival, at the Roundhouse, London on 23rd July and they will also be appearing at the End Of The Road Festival on 3rd September, which sold out in record time. They will also be returning to the states for a few shows in the beginning of September. For a full list of tour dates check out Mogwai’s tour page at subpop.com!

I've only listened to the last one and Young Team. I don't know why but I haven't felt the urge to dive deeper into their discography. It's something that I have with a lot of post-rock acts. I enjoy the albums but somehow I lose interest.

Well, you should definitely check them out at some point. You're missing out!

I like the EP cover.

I've never cared for rock remixes, so I don't know if I'll get it or not, but I love the cover for the upcoming remix album:

I doubt I'll get it, but agreed about the cover.

Morning,
You might have heard us mention over the past few months that we've been in the studio. We've been working on music for the brand new show on Canal+ 'Les Revenants'. The first episode airs tonight at 20:55.

We're pleased to announce that we'll be releasing music from the show early next year. We'll have a strictly limited 10" (2000 only worldwide) out on January 28th and a full OST album released 25th February on CD, LP and Digital Download via Rock Action Records. You can see artwork for the 10" below.

You can find out more about the show here: Les revenants
Looks like it's only an EP, but I'm looking forward to it. They've done a great job with soundtracks in the past.

I haven't heard any of their soundtracks but the more Mogwai the better.

The first song on that Les Revenants EP, Wizard Motor, is pretty great. I'm excited for the full soundtrack in February.
