Mogwai to Release "Rave Tapes" on January 20
Fri, 08 Nov 2013 11:09:02
Wanna "Rave," as opposed to "rage?" Well you can, sort of, since Mogwai are back! The group will release Rave Tapes, their eighth studio album in 19 years, on CD/LP/DL January 20, 2014. A North American tour will commence in April, 2014.
The album features 10 tracks and was produced by the band with returning associate Paul Savage (Mogwai’s Young Team, Delgados, Arab Strap).
Rave Tapes is the band's second release on Rock Action, the label they set up almost 18 years ago to issue their debut 7-inch single, Tuner/Lower. In between, the Scottish musicians have established themselves on the international stage through a prolific recorded output and a commitment to touring that few of their peers can match.
Clocking in at just under 50 minutes, the 10-track album is a lustrous collection mined from the same quarry as its predecessors, wreathed in painterly textures underpinned by increasingly electronic beats.
1. Heard About You Last Night
2. Simon Ferocious
4. Hexon Bogon
6. Master Card
8. Blues Hour
9. No Medecine For Regret
10. The Lord Is Out Of Control
