Mogwai Announce North American Tour


(Prog) Mogwai have announced a run of North American dates in support of their Atomic album. It was released in April this year and contains reworked soundtrack material they composed for the BBC documentary Atomic: Living In Dread And Promise.

The film explores humanity's relationship with nuclear weapons and consists of archive footage from events such as the Cold War, Chernobyl and Fukushima.

They played shows across Europe in support of the album earlier this year- now Mogwai will play the 10-track record in full accompanied by a screening of the documentary in the background on 11 dates in January.

Mogwai's Barry Burns previously said the band didn't expect their latest album to be released when they started writing material for it. He said: "It's weird because this one turned out like a proper album. We didn't expect it to even be released - but once we realized that these were proper songs that sounded like us and didn't just sound like a soundtrack, we thought we may as well release it."

The North American tour will kick off in Los Angeles on January 18 and wrap up in Montreal on the 31st of the month. See the dates here.
