Mogwai have announced details of a massive, 40-date European and US tour.

The post-rock figureheads will kick off in Norway on October 10 before touring Europe and the US for two months.The tour will wrap up in their hometown of Glasgow. They’ll also perform at Festival No. 6 in Poretmeirion in North Wales in September.

Mogwai recently completed with recording sessions with former Flamimg Lips/Mercury Rev producer Dave Fridmann on their yet-to-be-titled new album. Fridmann worked with the band before on their albums Come On Die Young (1999) and Rock Action (2001).

The band’s last album was Atomic which was released last year. The album featured reworked soundtrack material that had been composed for the BBC documentary, Atomic: Living In Dread And Promise.

Speaking with Noisey last year, the band’s Barry Burns said that Atomic could give an indication of where Mogwai were headed next.

He said: “At first, I viewed it as a soundtrack for this TV show, but I think it also shows the direction that the next album might go in. But then again, you never really know until you get together in Glasgow and start playing the songs, so it's quite difficult to predict what the next one's going to be like.”
