Mogwai announce new album

By | Published on Wednesday 13 January 2016


Mogwai have announced that they will release a new album, titled ‘Atomic’, on 1 Apr through their own Rock Action label. The record features reworked versions of music from their score for atomic bomb documentary ‘Atomic: Living In Dread And Promise’.

Says the band’s Stuart Braithwaite: “The ‘Atomic’ soundtrack is one of the most intense and fulfilling projects we’ve taken on as a band. Ever since we went to Hiroshima to play and visited the peace park this has been a subject very close to us. The end results, both the film score and the record, are pieces I’m extremely proud of”.

You can listen to the first track released from the album, ‘U-235’, now:
