Single, album and UK tour

from today's mogwai newsletter:

Our new ep will be out on September 8th on CD, 12" vinyl and download (September 9th on vinyl and download in north America). The tracklist is:

1 - Batcat
2 - Stupid Prick Gets Chased By The Police And Loses His Slut Girlfriend
3 - Devil Rides

Batcat also features on our forthcoming new album The Hawk Is Howling which is due out on September 22nd. Devil Rides features vocals by the legendary Roky Erickson. Batcat and Stupid Prick.... were both recorded by Andy Miller at Chem 19 and mixed by Gareth Jones at Castle Of Doom. Devil Rides was recorded by Tony Doogan at Castle of Doom with Roky's vocal recorded at Wire Recording by Stuart Sullivan and mixed by Gareth Jones at Castle Of Doom.

We're excited to be able to announce we're doing some UK shows in October. Dates are below and you should be able to get hold of pre-sale tickets by clicking the following link to our online shop around noon on Friday 30th May. Pre-sale link -

October 21st - Corn Exchange, Edinburgh
October 23rd - Manchester Academy, Manchester
October 24th - Hammersmith Apollo, London


We've got some BRAND NEW t-shirt designs available on our online store, designed by Russell Elder from Monorail in Glasgow and our good friend Aidan Moffat. The shirts were first available at the Tramway show we did last month so if you didn't get the chance to make it along or haven't seen then have a look now

note the change in release date for the Batcat ep from our previous report (7th july). presumably this means that 'devil rides' is not on the album?

hopefully more shows will be added to the uk tour?!
