Here at Sonic Masala, there are certain bands that lie at our very soul they are the bands that tie us together, the bands that we first started talking about. So when one of these bands has news of a new album we get really excited. This time its Mogwai who have us in a lathery sweat with news about their new album Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will.
The Glasgow legends will drop their seventh long player, naturally on Rock Action, on the 14th February 2011. Out on the 15th on Sub Pop for those Stateside. There's a track listing, see below. And there's even a few more facts about the L.P to get even more excited about. One, its produced by Mogwai confidante Paul Savage, the man who produced Young Team. Two, the Limited Edition version of the album will feature a 26 minute long track called The Singing Mountain recorded for Douglas Gordon and Olaf Nicolai’s Monument for Forgotten Future installation in Essen, Germany. Three, there's those live dates that were announced months back that now fit in with the release date, new live material then, dribble!
Finally four, here's some gratuitous Mogwai related vid and track etc, no reason other than why the fuck not?
