Earth Division ep - update


Just listened to our mastered Earth Division ep. I'm really happy with it. The ep will be out in autumn. Still getting the artwork together. When that's done we'll announce the release date.

Thanks Ben

Mogwai on arte "Tracks"

The original broadcast took place on 23rd June. Given that the TV show was nearly an hour in length, presumably additional Mogwai footage was broadcast compared to that made available online.

Thanks Markus and Einzack

"The Mogwai special was about 5'30'' long and was broadcast with both German and Franch audio streams. The content that's available on the ARTE web site is in fact additional "bonus" material that hasn't been broadcast." Thanks Markus

"Secret show" in Germany - 30th June?!

Poking around for further German dates after confirming the Leipzig show on 1st November, I stumbled upon this on the PIAS Germany website:


30.06. ??? Secret Location, DE
01.07. Duisburg – Traumzeit Festival

So Mogwai are playing a secret show somewhere in Germany the night before the Traumzeit Festival? Curious!

Leipzig - 1st November

First European tour date confirmation for the autumn (beyond the Glasgow show on 22nd December):


Werk II
Kochstraße 132
04277 Leipzig

1st November 2011

Further European dates through November, culminating in a UK tour in December? We can but hope...

'San Pedro' on Jimmy Fallon last night
Last night influential Scottish band Mogwai made their U.S. television debut on the show! They played the song "San Pedro" off their album Hardcore Will Never Die But You Will. If you missed it, you can still watch by going directly to it in our full episode player. Do it!

Unfortunately the full episode player doesn't seem to work in Europe and there's nothing on YouTube yet. If anyone sees a video online, please let me know.

Am I right in thinking that this the first time Mogwai have recorded a performance specifically for TV since February 1998?

Milan - September 2011


Magnolia Parade
Circolo Magnolia
Via Circonvallazione Idroscalo, 41
20090 Segrate, Milan

1st - 3rd September
The date of Mogwai's performance is unconfirmed as yet, but it will be either 1st or 2nd September as they're at End Of The Road on 3rd September.
