Scottish post rock quintet Mogwai are set to release their eight studio album in January. Entitled Rave Tapes, the effort was created this past summer in Mogwai’s Castle Of Doom studio in Glasgow. The album arrives on January 20th in the Europe via the band’s own Rock Action and the following day in North America via Sub Pop.
The issued press release describes Rave Tapes as “a lustrous collection mined from the same quarry as its predecessors, wreathed in painterly textures underpinned by increasingly electronic beats”.
Ahead of the release, Mogwai have just shared a new track from the album, ‘The Lord is Out of Control’. It comes with an accompanying video directed by Antony Crook and shot on location in Hawaii. Here it is.
