'Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will'

‘Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will’
Label: Rock Action Records
Release Date: 14th February 2011 (15th February 2011 US Release)

Mogwai are set to push the boundaries of where art meets rock even further into the abyss with the announcement that their new album, ‘Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will’ will be released on 14th February 2011 on the band’s very own Rock Action Records.

‘Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will’, the band’s seventh album, was recorded over the summer at Chem 19 Studios, in Hamilton and mixed at The Castle Of Doom. ‘Hardcore’ is produced by Mogwai confidante Paul Savage (the man behind Mogwai’s exceptional 1997 ‘Mogwai Young Team’ album) and is the logical follow up to the band’s 2008’s magnum opus ‘The Hawk Is Howling’ and showcases Mogwai’s relentless devotion to duty and refusal to compromise sonically with it’s sheer brutally and distinctive subtle beauty.

The album will be released on February 15 2011 in the US where Mogwai have recently signed to the illustrious Sub Pop label for North America.
