Mogwai share new track “Party In The Dark”

Mogwai share new track "Party In The Dark."

Mogwai have shared new track “Party In The Dark,” off their album Every Country’s Sun, out September 1st via Temporary Residence Ltd. “Party In The Dark” will be available to purchase on 7″ on August 25th, including the exclusive b-side track “Eternal Panther.” Perhaps the most fully realized art-pop sing-along in the band’s discography, “Party In The Dark” combines a post-punk blueprint with expansive space-rock and has been described by Dazed as “a New Order-nodding melodic joy”.

Every Country’s Sun sees the Scottish band join forces once again with producer Dave Fridmann for the first time since 2001’s Rock Action. The new record takes two decades of Mogwai’s signature, contrasting sounds – towering intensity, pastoral introspection, synth-rock minimalism, DNA-detonating volume – and distills it.

Mogwai recently announced a major world tour, kicking off in Oslo on October 10, taking in dates in Europe, North America, and the UK, wrapping up with a performance at London’s O2 Academy Brixton on December 15, followed by a massive hometown show at The SSE Hydro, Glasgow on December 16. Before then, they will headline Festival No.6 in September.
