New Mogwai Lands In March, Band Tours

Fans of Mogwai can pull out a party hat and rejoice. The group is releasing their fifth album, Mr. Beast on March 7, 2006. This follows up 2003’s Happy Songs To Happy People, and it will be released via Matador. It was produced by Tony Doogan and the band at the Castle of Doom Studio and promises to be a combination of their early guitar work mixed in with their recent subtleness.

A North American tour was also made public, with Growing and Torche opening up for them depending on the date. They will be hitting up Illinois, Ohio, Kentucky, Virginia, New York, Maryland, North Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia, and Texas. If you can’t wait to check out the new tunes, or for the tour, then head on over to their MySpace page where “Friend Of The Night”, their first single, is already streaming.
