MOGWAI - Unveil video for 'Party In The Dark' single - taken from the new album 'EVERY COUNTRY'S SUN'

Mogwai have today shared the video for new single ‘Party In The Dark’, taken from forthcoming album ‘Every Country’s Sun’. Directed by Craig Murray and inspired by 80s sci-fi and horror movies, the practical effects film was created using silicone moulded sculptures, which were cast in wax and then melted. The video was filmed over 10 days a combination of stop motion, regular and time-lapse filming.

‘Party In The Dark’ has already enjoyed several weeks on the BBC Radio 6Music A-list and has previously been described by Dazed as “a New Order-nodding melodic joy”. The single will be available to purchase on 7” on August 25th, which includes exclusive B-side track ‘Eternal Panther’. A distorted slab of Dinosaur Jr-esque noise-rock, ‘Eternal Panther’ shows yet another side to the ever-evolving band.

‘Every Country’s Sun’ see’s the Scottish band join forces once again with producer Dave Fridmann, for the first time since 2001’s ‘Rock Action’ LP. The new record takes two decades of Mogwai’s signature, contrasting sounds – towering intensity, pastoral introspection, synth-rock minimalism, DNA-detonating volume – and distils it, beautifully, into 56 concise minutes of gracious elegance, hymnal trance-rock, and transcendental euphoria.

Mogwai begin their massive world tour in Oslo on 10 October, taking in dates in Europe, North America and the UK, and wrapping up with a performance at London’s O2 Academy Brixton on 15 December, followed by their huge hometown show at The SSE Hydro, Glasgow on 16 December. Mogwai will also headline Festival No.6 on September 8. Visit for full ticket information.
