Mogwai - US Tour 2012
Hello all and a happy new year.
2011 was a great year for us releasing our Hardcore Will Never Die album and playing 124 shows (our busiest ever). We were constantly surprised and grateful for the support we received throughout both through people coming to see us play all over the world and the goodwill shown towards our record. The only blemish on an otherwise brilliant year was us twice having to postpone shows in North America. Firstly because of a visa delay and secondly because of ill health.
We can’t apologise enough to the people who arranged travel and bought tickets to see us. Both of these postponements were completely out with our control and the shows would not have been postponed if there was anyway possible to make them happen. That said we realise fully how disappointed people were who had bought tickets only to find out very close to the shows that we were postponing. In light of this we are very happy to announce the rescheduled dates along with new dates for next May and June. It will likely be the last extensive touring we do for some time so we hope it will be a very special tour.
Tickets people still have for the original Boston and Washington DC shows will be honoured at the door.
Thanks for your patience!

Post-rock giants Mogwai will make up for their cancelled Webster Hall appearances surrounding ATP with a pair of new ones at the venue, scheduled for June 14th and 15th.This lends further credibility to the Bonnaroo appearance, and to the Washington DC date having apparently been rescheduled for 11th June.

Extensive rumours circulating online put Mogwai amongst the line-up for Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival (Manchester, TN - 7th to 10th June), with the twice-postponed US dates in Washington, New York, Philadelphia and Boston likely to be rescheduled for around the same time. Confirmation as we get it.

The February 2012 edition of Mojo magazine includes a covermount CD with various folks covering tracks from New Order's 'Power Corruption & Lies' album. Amongst the contributors, Errors have turned in a great version of 'The Village'. Hopefully they're busy rehearsing this for their forthcoming UK tour.
Tracks from the covermount CD can be sampled here:
