Mogwai Announce Atomic Tour Dates

(Prog) Mogwai have announced a string of live shows in Europe and Japan in support of their album, Atomic. The album, which was released on April 1, contains reworked soundtrack material they composed for the BBC documentary Atomic: Living In Dread and Promise.

The group will perform Atomic live along with a screening of the documentary in the background. They'll kick off tour next month, with performances scheduled at Edinburgh Festival in August and London's Coventry Cathedral and The Barbican in September.

Mainman Stuart Braithwaite said: "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."

The documentary Atomic: Living In Dread And Promise explores humanity's delicate relationship with nuclear warfare and consists of archive footage from events such as the Cold War, Chernobyl and Fukushima. See the tour dates here.
